It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas :)

Hi everyone! :)

The family and I decorated the house for Christmas this past weekend and wanted to share some of the photos! :)


The kids putting ornaments on the tree -- while Mr. Dandy comes to help! :)















Have I mentioned before that I am a HUGE ELMO fan?!?!? :)







My Mom made this ceramic Santa :)

I have had this "Julie" Santa boot since I was a child :)

And this candle is also from when I was a child :)







And Brookie is a total crack up!! LOL! :) She put on the Christmas tree skirt as an ACTUAL SKIRT!!! LOL :)


And ok... as some of you know ... Brian is a bowler ... wellllllll I was "trying" to make our stockings look like a Christmas tree --- Brian looks at it and says -- "It looks like BOWLING PINS!!" -- really dear!!?!?!?! LOL :)




And Saturday was my craft show :) We were there for 2 1/2 hours and I sold 2 canvasses and 4 cards -- not great -- but not bad for only 2 1/2 hours :)

My table :)


Brian came to help :)


And Santa was there :) And Brookie got to see him!! She was so excited!! :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  18. No, that's not bad for 2 1/2 hours of a craft sell. You are killing me with the Christmas decor! I just can't get enough energy or spirit to even think about getting anything out! Yours look great though! Love the arch doorway behind your tree! Brookie cracks me up in the tree skirt! Went to see Breaking Dawn today. It was awesome! The entire crowd gasped when the "twist" happened. I'm glad I hadn't heard what happened before!!! Have a great week!

I actually have the whole bunny family with the bench and everything. They are stashed in the back of our under stairs storage... you have inspired me to bring them back to life. Good job on the craft fair. I would say that is pretty good!!

You have sooo many sweet things that just make me smile. Really love that you have some things from your childhood. Love Brookie in the tree skirt and love your wall display of stockings (even if they do look like bowling pins ;)
    Your craft table looked great! Hope you had a ton of fun with it!

  48. Love all of your Christmas decor! I feel like I am behind, everyone I know is already decorating :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. WOW! I cannot believe you are all decorated for the holidays! I hate to admit that we haven't put anything up for three or four years. We don't have the time and wouldn't be around for the holidays so we found it was easier to not decorate. I do miss it though!

    And look at you with your craft fair! HOOOOORAY for selling some goodies!!!

  51. It can be a tree AND bowling pins! Everyone wins! And no, I don't think you've mentioned Elmo before, at least not recently. Another fun bit of Julie Trivia!
