Deck The Halls

I love the holidays! Christmas is a favorite time of year for a lot of people, including me. I love how the house is transformed into a festive place with the fresh tree and Christmas decorations. It usually takes me a couple of days to finish decorating the house. I don't go overboard though. Much of the decors are centered in one room while the other rooms in the house have a couple of decors to convey the season. So I present to you, my family's Christmas tree and other Christmas decorations. I'm also showing some of my favorite ornaments.

This Precious Moment's ornament is for my daughter's 1st Christmas in 1999.

This cute ornament is for my son's 1st Christmas in 2004

This cute Santa is from Carlota. She gave it
to me many years ago. :o)

I love collecting crystal ornaments. I like the way the light
shines through it which gives the tree an almost magical feel. This
is a Lenox ornament and is one in a set of five.

This is one of 12 Lenox porcelain snowflake ornaments. Just like a
real snowflake, each one is different. It has a hanging metal
plate in the middle which depicts one of the 12 Days of Christmas

Another one of my various spun glass ornament.

I bundled up these small frosted balls. I love the way it looks.

The Nativity Scene, baby Jesus is hidden some other place
in the house until Christmas Eve.

The stocking hangers are also picture frames. I put dh and my photos
when we were small kids along with my kids' photos in each corresponding hanger.

My simple stairway. I used to have many more
red Christmas balls but my son broke most of
it last year. LOL
My Christmas village. The little people are currently in my son's bedroom
where they are part of a pirate ship crew. LOL

  13. Wow, your tree is beautiful! We haven't been decorating yet, as in my country things like that are done the day before Christmas Eve or even on Christmas Eve (but we keep the Christmas stuff around longer, for me Christmas Eve is just the beginning :)). I think we're going to have some handmade decorations made of straw this year, I'll see.
