Christmas at Our House

I am in the process of decorating our house for Christmas. It is taking me longer than usual because I am just not sure where to put things and I have these sweet new babies and a three year old who need attention every now and then. :)We lived in our old house for 5 years and I always put things in the same place, just adding things each year. Well, this year our house is a little bigger than our old one and I have more space and I just have not figured out where I want things and what I need so I have just been doing a little at a time.  Megan at Blissfully Burton is hosting a Christmas decorations link up and I wanted to play along even though I am not done. Maybe seeing everyone else's decor will inspire me to finish- or at least get the mums off the porch and replace them with something Christmasy. :)

Here are some pictures of our home so far this season...

Our mantel in the great room.

I just love this picture! I cannot believe this Christmas we have 3 kids.

The little nativity in this picture is very special to me.
It was at my grandma's house and I have been told it is now mine because I used to call it MaryAnne & Joseph. :)

Our nativity.

A cute little sign in my kitchen.
I had it made this year and it makes me smile.

This candle smells divine!!
Christmas in Kentucky

A terrible picture but here is our tree.
Still lacking a few things but here is what we have so far.

Clark's addition to the decor- his "ginger house".
I also spy Walker- our elf.

A seasonal use for the trifle bowl.
(pic actually from last year- but in use this year too)

These two little stocking stuffers are new to the decor around here this year too!
I have high hopes to put wreaths on all the windows outside, garland on my banisters, and a few more trees up but I have a feeling if it does not get done this weekend it is not getting done. I go back to work on Monday and I think life around here might be a little more hectic and Christmas decor might be pushed to the bottom of the list...we shall see.

Happy December 1st!!!

I also encourage you to head over to Megan's blog and play along too or at least say hello. She is also a teacher and new mommy and has a super cute blog.
