It's looking like Christmas

I put my decorations up the day after Thanksgiving and thought I'd give you a peek into my house.
Here are my stockings. I'm fortunate because I have a talented sister. Terri made the kids stockings and they are treasured keepsakes for sure. I also love my stocking holders.

I love Santas and I've collected a few. The tall one is my favorite- it's also Oscar's favorite as he's been trying to bite his beard!

We decided to do something different this year over our cupboards. We wanted to get garland that was already lighted, but it was pretty pricey. Mark suggested making our own. I didn't know how that was going to turn out- but I'm really happy with it.

This is above my kitchen sink- I've got a little mantle there. Again my love of Santas! Since my girls heritage is Russian, I like to incorporate it where I can so these Santas are Russian and the girls love them as much as I do!

Lastly, the tree:

Oh- look closely under that tree- do you see what I see?

Lets look again:

Yes that's Oscar under the tree- how fitting since he was part of the kids Christmas present this year!

Hope you're enjoying all the beauty of the Christmas Season!

Your house looks so beautiful! I love that little cutie under the tree! I still need to meet him in person though... maybe I shouldn't - I would want a little cutie pie like that too!
