Christmas Tour of Homes

I snapped a few pictures of our decorations this year, since we actually put most of them out. I'm not very experimental with my decor, but have lots of ornaments here & there.

our mantle - only the stockings aren't hung. Those snowflake hangers way a ton & my husband is paranoid that one of the little people will pull one off on their head resulting in a trip to the ER. they're residing on top of the refrigerator for now :-)

i got this red berry garland a few years ago & it is by far my favorite Christmas decoration. the lights i put under it make it sparkle so much!

our main tree which is in our kitchen / dining area. we don't really have a good place for it, so we just take the leaf out of the table & stick it in the corner. there is no theme to our tree, just a mish mash of ornaments.

this is probably my favorite ornament. i think i stole it from my mom some time ago :-).

this is just for the nester! i feel like i should mail it to her.Photobucket
i have all of my grandparents christmas ornaments, and there are LOTS of antiquish glass ones that are so fragile that they'll break if they're just touched wrong.

my favorite little undecorator.

This is Claire's little tree that is in her room. silver & sparkly

Grant's tree doesn't really have a theme, but turned into the vintage tree. He has all of the old unbreakable / non-glass ornaments from the grandparents.
