Christmas time is here....

....and it's showing itself too!
Most people save the best for last, but I think I'll start with the best, then go in no particular order...
Here's the reason we have Christmas.

Notice the sheep right beside Jesus(who was probably not blond headed and blue eyed!)? Noah put that sheep there because, "Jesus always takes care of His sheep Mama.....He will look for them when they get lost!"

Here is where our stockings are hung by the chimney with care...

This little ditty was made by my one of my grandmother's best friends, and probably the friend she's had the longest. Somehow, it made it's way from Na-Na's living room to mine!!! (Wink Wink!)

And for the fireman in us all...

My favorite part of the tree.

She used to move her arms and head back and forth and even flap her wings, but she broke a couple of years ago, I'd love a new one, but I'm not sure how to say bye to this one. Yes, I know it's not a real angel, but I do love her, and don't want to say bye! D told me that I should just stand in a chair by her everyday and move her body parts for her....I wish that's all I had time for, but it's not!

Oh, here's another couple of favorites that joined us 2 years ago. What? Two years ago....that's crazy, seems like yesterday!

The snowmen are Noah's fingerprints!!!

Here she is in the daytime.

And at night.
For that tree to have 1,001 ornaments on it, it sure does look empty. I'm going to have to invest in some more ornaments this year, maybe after Christmas sales?!?!?! And our tree will probably never look like the ones in the magazines, I just love an original.

Oh yeah, let's don't forget about outside.

See our pretty tree through our pretty door?

Our pretty door that needs a paint job, luckily you can't see it in this picture. Have I ever mentioned that my dad can paint?!?! Anyway...

We have 2 of these as new additions this year.

Our other windows look like this....oldies but goodies.

The pictures I have taken of our Christmas decorations do not do any justice to the actual decorations them self, but I decided to post them anyway. I am definitely not a decorator, never have claimed to be. This is not Southern Living, but it is Living Southern!!! Also, please let me note: try not to laugh, it may look silly to you, but for the first time in 7 years we decorated everything different than the past 6 was a big deal!!! Every year we put the same decorations in the same spot, the same way. This year we got a little wild!

Later on I will probably do a post, along with Noah to display "his" decorations!!!

  1. Love the pics of your tree and the house. Especially the ones of the front of the house from the yard.
