Christmas decor [2012]

Keeping it easy simple this year. 4 Trees and just a few things around the house.

Our only real tree is the one in the living room. The dogs insist on sleeping under this tree day and night. They constantly "nest" on the tree skirts. I am prepared for the day they pull down the tree doing by doing that, but for now I've moved dog beds around the tree to try to appease them.
Peacock tree (formerly master Bedroom tree) now upstairs at the New House....

Lizzy's Tree....
Jay's Tree.....


Hall Table.....
Entry Table....

I am starting to hang our cards on a door, but always run out of room-so who knows where else they'll end up.

oh, and Jay made this at school...
.. I LOVE it--mostly because he can identify the Holy Family and tell you about Jesus' Birthday.

I hope to do more every year, but with Jay and Lizzy both being so small; less really is more. I want to keep everyone safe and happy (kids AND ornaments. :)) It isn't perfect or awe-inspiring, but its our Christmas this year. We are richly blessed in this house and are having the best, most Holy Christmas I've ever known. Thank you Lord for these precious gifts and the gift of your Son and everlasting life!!

I'll be linking up to Kelly's Korner and with The Nester this week--Merry Christmas!
