Home for the Holidays

Our family room tree.
I love decorating for Christmas and my tree is my favorite part. I love seeing all of my ornaments and the memories that come from them. I always have my favorites and put them in special spots. I love to sit on the couch at night and look at the tree. The boys have loved loved loved the tree this season.
I have loved filling all of the shelves with holiday decorations.

Fun little decorations in the kitchen.







I love getting out Christmas pictures of the boys.








Elfie 1 and Elfie 2 have been quite busy at our house. They can be found hanging around from room to room. It's fun to find them each day.









One of my favorite decorations is this Nativity Baylor painted when he was 5. I have it on my desk with my other Nativity sets. We have loved our plush Nativity tree this season and our Little People set. I love to hear Parker say Jesus Joy. He looks for Jesus in the manger scenes and I hope he is always looking to Jesus as he grows.










Love these cute ornaments for the boys' initials.










I'm loving all of the new shelf space this year.










We have been busy checking off items on our Christmas Fun List. Such a fun time of the year.










When Tom and I started dating I started the tradition of taking a Christmas picture each year and putting it in a frame. This is now our 17 Christmas together. We are going to need a bigger table. I love looking at the pictures and it's one of my most favorite things.










We put up a Pooh tree in the game room this year and Parker loves this tree. The boys also have trees in their rooms with their beloved Nutcracker collections. We love our house at Christmas and have enjoyed the decorations this year!









I am linking up with Kelly's Korner and The Nester today.

All of your decor is so cute!! I love for tree and how full it is of ornaments. What sweet memories! And what a great idea to take a picture every year. I am sure that you love looking at them every year as you get them back out. The nativity is adorable as well!! I love your white shelves! I have similar shelves in my basement, but just one set on each side of the fire place! How I would LOVE to have the amount that you have:) Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Such fun Christmas decor. I love the tradition of taking a holiday photo each year. I wish we would have done that.
