it's beginning to look a lot like **Christmas**

We decorated for Christmas the Sunday after Thanksgiving and I am just now getting around to taking some pictures . . .

For the past 3 years, we have had a little tradition :) We spend one whole day going to get our tree, putting it up & decorating it, putting up other decorations, listening to Christmas music, eating a big breakfast (this year we ate breakfast for supper!), and watching movies. We had so much fun!

Josh likes having a real tree... which I do love. Especially last year because we got our tree at Wal Mart and it was SO pretty and did really good. This year we got ours at Lowe's and I am a little disappointed. I keep it watered and within 4-5 days of putting it up, it stared to wilt :( I don't know why!! I think it will make it til Christmas but its just a little sad... I do still love it though. I love sitting here with my hunny & my Kobe in front of it.... which I am right now :)

Here it is!I even have a couple of presents wrapped!I am still in LOVE with my "entertainment center"! I bought it from a man off Craigslist back earlier in the year. He actually has a business where he buys furniture and refinishes it and then re-sells it. I bought a dresser from him for my bedroom a couple of weeks ago and I love it too. This one is an antique buffet that has been painted white & distressed to look shabby chic. Love that look! I took the 2 drawers out on the sides and put baskets in instead. Then instead of having a drawer in the middle, I use it for my cable box and DVD player. Love it!!
Back to the Christmas thing I do love about having a real tree is that it is normally too big and we have to cut it down, which means I have tons of greenery leftover to decorate with :)

Our entryway..

I got this cute nativity scene last year after Christmas on sale at Belk and I just love it! The best part is that I forgot I bought it and when I was unpacking my Christmas box I found it! Yay:)
Wish we had a mantle....for now this will do!Can't forget the mistletoe!Our dining room table...And my favorite ornaments....
Annie got this for us our 1st Christmas :)
We bought this one on our honeymoon at Disney:)That's about it! I will post Christmas pics of the salon soon:)
