Christmas decor

I love decorating for Christmas, and now that we have our very own house I'm going all out this year!! Every time I walk in the door I feel a sense of welcome and warmth with all of the decorations and the tree greeting me. Here are some pics of the decor thus far:

Our 9 foot Christmas tree which is the tallest we've ever had. I love how it looks in the living room with the high ceilings.

The star.

Wreath with fresh trimmings in the living room window.

The nativity. I love how the kids always make the animals all face baby Jesus.

Dining room decor: Fresh holly branches from our tree.

Close up of the holly.

Entertainment center decorated with nutcrackers and holly.

I taped the snow flakes I crocheted some years back to decorate the door's windows.

Mosaic I made and two vintage angel ornaments.

The vintage Christmas cards I hang each year.

The stockings are hanging in the hallway down stairs. Usually they hang on a wall, but this year I decided to break with tradition. I think I'll add some garland along the wainscoating as well.
