Decking the Halls

I've really been enjoying all of the blog parties showing Christmas decorations, so I thought I join in on the fun! 

Our family room...fresh pine, magnolia, and boxwood from our yard.  I had to skip the lights this year because the little girls would definately pull them down.  I love our new stockings, but I'm not sure what I was thinking when I picked the fabrics...thet don't go too well in the room.
Out cinnamon salt dough ornaments sit on a tiny tree by the front door...they smell so good!
The mantle in our bedroom...more fresh greenery and camelias
(one of my favorites and lucky us, we have about 20 bushes!)
from the yard.
I love having a tree in each of the children's bedrooms...there is something so magical about going to sleep in a room with twinkling lights and our little ones have so much fun decorating them with their special ornaments!
B's tree
AC'S tree
and LJ and MC's

The lighting in these next pictures are not great, but that sweet girl above has decided her nap time is over, so I'm making do.
Our dining room...we eat dinner here every night and I love using our Christmas china.  Our main tree.... bless it's heart.  My precious husband insisted we convert to LCD lights because they are safer for young children, but they are a bit psychedelic, yes?  And no ornaments from 3 feet down...we choose to love it anyway.
Our advent calendar hangs in the kitchen....

Hope you all enjoyed the tour as much as I have seeing y'alls homes!

I would really love to know where you got that mirror over the fireplace if you have a moment. Thanks!

I LOVE how you decorated and all the trees for each of the kids rooms! I'm going to have to do that next year!

Cheryl said...

Oh, thanks for sharing your sweet, sweet home! I love how your decorating accomodates your four little blessings...from the trees in their rooms, to the adorable advent calendar, to the dining room tree with no ornament on the lower branches. (This made me smile.) :-D

Love your stockings...and the rest of your home, so pretty! I loved reading your "About Me" We have a set of twins, two girls who are a little over two, and a four year old son. I could not imagine having another set of twins! As much as I love my girls, two at one time (especially now that we are in the terrible twos) is challenging! Having your older twins be quite a bit older than your girls probably helps I'm sure! Such a cute family! Happy Holidays!
