Deckin' The Halls, Ya'll

This is kind of what we all felt like after we worked so hard putting up decorations this year. Sam, managed us the whole time. It was very helpful.

The nativity is always the center of our decorations. When you walk in the front door, you almost run into it. I feel that it sets the tone for anyone who enters our house. A couple of years ago, my husband made this handy dandy entry table for me. He even engraved love stuffs on the back. It has served as our nativity holder each year. It is probably my favorite Christmas decoration, if you can even call it that.

The mirror does pretty things with the lights in the living room.

Every year, we have one new addition. This year it is the big outside wreath. We don't decorate outside, so this is a big deal for us. We bought the wreath and I stuck pretty things in it. My husband kept saying, "It has to be five feet". He was right, it had to be five feet.

Next year, I am trying to get hubby to make a scroll/banner type decoration that goes above the arches. I want for it to say, "The King Is Born". What do you think?

If you stand just right outside, the tree is framed in the wreath. How cool is that? I, of course, had nothing to do with that. It was all hubby.

This is how we decked the halls, ya'll.

    My house is never photo worthy on the inside - but there's a marvellous array of fun homes and their decorations over there. You should join the carnival.
