In any case, welcome to our lovely abode, all decked out for the holidays.
|Lots of nativities around the hearth--advent calendars, play nativity, and the shiny metal one on the mantle.|
|There are still a few gifts to arrive, but I've wrapped what we have. I love to wrap gifts!|
|I did the dining room table differently this year, with a tray I found at a thrift store, filled with candles, ornaments, angels, and greenery, and ornaments hanging from beads on the light fixture.|
|A simpler Advent wreath on the kitchen table this year (since I hung the actual wreath above the mantle!)|
|My favorite holly jollies: the kiddos, decorating our gingerbread house!|
