Decking the Halls . . . .

"Christmas waves it's magic wand over this world and behold, 
everything is softer and more beautiful."
-- Norman Vincent Peale

I hope this finds you happy, well and in the throws of a wonderful Christmas season. 

As with most, we've been filling our days with Christmas parties, play dates with friends, (too much) shopping, gift wrapping and overall merry making. Oh, and along the way, we've managed to deck a hall or two. Wanna see? Well okay, here's a peek into our holiday home. . . .

A huge handmade wreath created from bits & bobs of our favorite ornaments 
from year's past. 

(Bold color & glitter: what's not to love about that?)

Our newest wreath that my Mom made with Kendra this year. 
(It started as a thrift store find that my Mom scored just before the season began)

What more could a future Paleontologist want?

I love this collection that we've been attempting to build (um, buy) over the years.

On our living room shelves: 
Two-year-old Christmas Kendra under glass

A feather tree in our bedroom is accented with simple silver ornaments and white lights

(My favorite Christmas goodie: a tiny silver tree full of crystals & glitter)

And our last Christmas peek: this year's picture with Santa & 8 year-old Kendra

Oh! And one more thing: our little Christmas angels. Well, okay, at least one of them is an angel. Which one depends on the day. . . .

Here's wishing you the happiest, brightest and merriest holiday. May it be filled with love, laughter and memory-making. After all, it will be over before we know it. . . . 

Christmas Kisses,
