My house looked like this on Sunday afternoon, so I got myself in gear to clean up for you guys!
I usually have a green wreath with colorful ornaments and a big red bow on my front door, but our sweet neighbor, Ms. Susan, bought us this Aggie Santa from The Round Top Collection, so Santa is gig-ing Christmas this year!
This door ornament drives Robert absolutely nuts, but my Nana made this for me, so I hang it up every December!
Keeping up with the crafty family, my aunt Amy made us this sign, and it's too cute!
The kids made these hand print Santas with our friend, Ms. Julie, last year, and they are too sweet!
I use our buffet table to display some of our extra ornaments and all of our Christmas cards from years past.
I love, love, love these hanging ornaments in the dining room! This is only the 2nd year that I've done this, but I think they really make the room!
Back in the living room, I have another cute sign from my aunt.
The kids like playing with the nativity scene at my mom's house, so I bought them one from Target a few years ago.
The kids' pooping sheep and reindeer join the nativity during play time, too!
Our mantle has a garland that I made almost a decade ago and nutcrackers that I collected from the Target Dollar Spot over the years. We celebrate St. Nicholas Day on the morning of December 6th, so the kids woke up this morning with a few little goodies in their stockings!
My Aunt Jill made Trip's stocking when he was a baby, so we had to get Robert a cowboy boot to match. His Memaw always had boot stockings on her tree for her kids and grandkids, too!
I'm fortunate to have a husband that lets me go wild at Christmas - meet my baby, Disco Christmas! Isn't she pretty!?!
I just use fabric as the tree skirt - cheap and easy!
This is my happy place!
Gotta have some mistletoe!
I used to keep our Texas tree upstairs in the game room, but the kids actually spend most of their time downstairs, and I wanted to enjoy it, so I moved it down to the kitchen last year.
We're a little behind on changing our Lego calendar, but this is Danny the countdown nutcracker. His two friends, Buddy and Mauro, are also in the kitchen, but I haven't found the best home for them just yet. Can you tell we like Cake Boss?!
I found a tartan tablecloth this year at Marhsalls, and I mixed in some of the kids' crafts with a trifle bowl full of ornaments. And according to the Roo, these two are Fancy and Rudolph!
I made this a few years ago, and I think it is so fun!
One last look
