I know I've shared several pictures of our Christmas tree and such, but today I want to link up with The Nester for her 2010 Christmas Tour of Homes!
Since we are in the middle of construction, all of our regular Christmas decorations are in storage and really hard to get to. So, we've improvised and bought a smaller tree. It's pretty Charlie Brownish, but it's ours and we love it...ok, Isaiah and I love it. Michael is just tolerating it.
Mostly, our tree is decorated with jingle bells. I bought a pack from Michael's for about $2. I also purchased a few spools of raffia. I hung all of the bells from the tree with raffia. I bought a large spool of tartan plaid ribbon and made bows...even a large one for the top. Isaiah is NOT happy about this, so we probably will have to go out and buy an angel or star before it's all over.
cute little pirate nutcracker that Isaiah opened as one of his 12 Days of Christmas gifts. He opened it and said "ARRRGGGGHHHH. I'll crack your nuts." Boys.
I love to match my wrapping to my tree. So, all of my gifts are wrapped in this brown/craft paper w/ red and gold writing on it. I really love the way it looks.
Here's a few other simple details I've added around the house.
