Welcome to our Home this Christmas

I saw a Christmas Tour of Homes over at BooMama...and wanted to enter...but didn't get to it to now...oh well, here is our home:-) This wreath is on our front door...normally Beth does all our arrangements, as she's a very talented floral artist. But alas, with the kiddos and our schedules it just never happened, so I did this myself...I'm sure its not as stunning as she would have done, but I like it:-)
Close up of the bird and pine cones:-)
Our tree this year just didn't photograph well so here are some close ups...An architect of course has to have building and bridge ornaments...Thank you Restoration Hardware, and thank you for after Christmas sales:-)
These are bright red bells from Target. Holden LOVES these, "balls"
Found these birds this year, never would have thought I would like these, but I love how they look in the tree...Holden loves the "birdies" too.

I made these stockings last year. I didn't put names on them so each one bears the owners picture on a pin...and in honor of Holden, they currently bear a child aged picture of the owner...he loves pointing out daddy's, Holden's, and mommy's.
This is a fun advent calendar my mom gets for Holden each year...I like it better than the candy ones, each day we talk about what sticker we are putting on, and he is anticipating when he can put baby Jesus on the picture...he loves to name the animals...

This is the stuffed nativity scene my mom found for Holden last year. This year it has been so fun to see him playing with it...all the pieces are finger puppets. The kings have traveled far with Holden...and baby Jesus gets rocked and kissed, and of course carried around a ton...

Thanks for coming in and seeing a little about how we celebrate Christmas:-) We hope your Christmas is blessed.
