It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.....

November 30, 2010

As promised...our Christmas tree!

 This is after it fell....3 times. We learned that a new sturdy tree stand makes a world of difference!

After Thanksgiving dinner my in-laws gave me two of these adorable old fashioned berry crates. The other one is a little bit larger. Oh how I LOVE them! My in-laws know me so well. I'm so excited to come up with ways to use them around the house.

I got tired of hanging up all of these glass balls and bells. Cute solution...put them in a bowl!

This is also in our living room. I bought the three white trees last year at an after Christmas sale and totally forgot about them until I unwrapped all of our stuff. Such a fun surprise!

 The husband insisted we display his Kermit the frog. And I have to admit, I sort of like him. (And thank you in advance for ignoring the dust on the shelf...and the last-name-cover-up job on the husband's baseball.)

Our plant needed some Christmas cheer too!

Christmas in the dining room. I love my collection of mercury glass trees.

 Wrigley checking out the tree. So far he's only destroyed one ornament! Last year we put a baby gate around the tree to keep him away. I'm hoping he will be better behaved this year so we don't have to do that again!

 Pancake aka "The Christmas Kitty". He LOVES our Christmas tree. 

That's my good boy. Don't you just love Christmas???
