12 Days of Christmas Blog Challenge - Day 12: Decorations

Sorry this post is a couple days late. I've been busy decorating and working with the kids at church on the Christmas Musical.

One of my favorite things about Christmas is getting all my decorations out and decorating the house. I get so excited unwrapping each and every ornament, to see which one its going to be. We went and got our 2010 Noble Fir this past Friday night and then Saturday I decorated. I've gotten so many of my decorations from PartyLite. A couple other decorations are from Avon and then the rest were homemade by myself or my mom.

Our living room decorated for Christmas.

The end-table in our living room. The reindeer, candles and musicbox are all from PartyLite.

The snow globe and infinite reflections are both from Partylite, the clock is from Avon and was a gift from my MIL. It plays a Christmas carol every hour... I love it! The nativity scene I've had for probably 10 years or more. Not sure where I got it but I've set it out every year.

My new table runner I got his year at Hobby Lobby for 50% off!!

The decorations in this picture are all Partylite except the frame. I think I got this frame at Walmart the first Christmas Jake and I were married. It has our first family Christmas Picture in it from 2007.
All the decorations in this picture are from Partylite.

 This is a super cute glass block night light that my mom made this year.

And the stockings were hung. All 6 of our stockings! :-)

 Jake's Great-Grandma made this tree skirt for him before he was even married. She made one for each of his brothers as well. It has been under our tree every year. I'm very sentimental and I love stuff like that. :-) She's in her 80's and still makes us a Christmas present every year.
