Thank you all for praying for Reagan! She is improving every hour. I really appreciate all your kind comments and your prayers. We definitely felt them!
I have been trying to post our Christmas decor for a few weeks now. :) Life has a way of getting in the way but that is okay. Since some of my pictures on my blog are now big black squares (still have no idea what caused this!) I couldn't see what I did last year. I can not remember how I had our sofa table, shelves or dining room table last year but I'm happy with how things came together this year. I think it is a little more simple. Westin has loved having all the decorations out which makes it so fun!
When we get more Santa pictures through the years I plan on making a garland out of them. It's fun to see the changes!
The chalkboard print is from HERE.
This milkglass bowl is from my Grandmother and it holds some ornaments from their first Christmas tree when they got married.
My mantle has pretty much always looked like this. We did get to add a stocking this year though. :) I still need to get it monogrammed. And I have replaced the lights since they slowly went out last week. I think the most asked question I get every year is about the nativity set. Unfortunately I have never seen them again at Hobby Lobby since I bought it many years ago. It is a large set that I bought for 90% off one year after Christmas. Joseph is 13" tall!
I love this hand painted sign I got at a local craft fair a few years ago.
Our chalkboard got a Christmas phrase. The words are not spaced very good and it's a little crooked but I can live with it. :) It is hard to write on a giant chalkboard. Haha!
Next up, our kitchen and dining room!
