There's no place like home for the Holidays...

And while we don't actually spend the holidays at our house, I decided I would still share a little bit of what our home looks like for the Holidays! I have loved seeing everyone else's Holiday decor, so I decided I would join in the sharing! In case it isn't obvious at this point, I am once again exhausted of wedding planning. And I figure if I'm sick of doing it, y'all are sick of reading about it! I'm glad that the timing worked out, and at least I have Christmas to distract me for awhile! So, here goes with my mini home-tour of what we have done so far. First up, the tree & fireplace:


Sadly, my camera can't seem to take a picture without the flash being on, so my tree looks a little sad in the picture. It really does look better in person! And yes, those 2 Christmas frames on the mantel don't have any pictures in them yet. I'll get to it... eventually! Next up is our kitchen table:


Now, we don't really ever eat anything at this table.. which is why it stays decorated for various seasons & holidays pretty much year-round. My favorite part has to be the snowman napkin rings... I have major love for snowmen. Next, our nativity:


I love, love, love my nativity. It is the Willow Tree nativity, and my Aunt Barb bought me a different set each year as part of my Christmas present each year until I had the whole set. I also have the large Creche (sp?) building part, but it wouldn't fit on this shelf. I guess I need a new spot for my nativity next year! Last but not least...


Carter and one of his favorite decorations, his snowman pillow on the couch. They pretty much snuggle with each other all day while we're working. He is also sporting his fun green & red polka dot Christmas collar from Mud Pie/Mud Puppies. He is dreaming of a White Christmas more than anybody, because this dog LOVES the snow!

Well with that I will conclude my mini Christmas tour of our home. I hope everyone enjoyed it!

Looks fab! Carter is sooooo cute, I had a Bichon, Lily, growing up and I just miss her to pieces, she was such a great dog.
