Christmas is officially here Forty20Four. The busted out the Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving. I truly LOVE Christmas. I love picking out presents for other people. I love seeing both our families and spending time with them. I love all the lights and the décor.
Since we’ve spent a lot of time this weekend decorating, I thought I’d know a few bingo squares out with our holiday décor.
We decided to put the Christmas tree this year in our family room. We spend a lot of time on the main floor but it’s really our family/tv room where we all unwind and spend the most time during the week.
In the picture, note the holy family in the knitted nativity scene. Micah’s Mom made it for us a few years ago. We love it. Actually, most people love it. Here’s a close-up from a few years ago.
For the most part, I feel like we’re almost there with our Christmas décor. We had so many ornaments we decided to skip the standard glass balls this year. We added 5 new ornaments from our travels this year. We pick up an ornament from every place we visit together. It’s “our” souvenir. I’d like some kind of garland maybe, and definitely a tree skirt. We NEED a tree skirt. I’m thinking of making something like this:
I love our nativity scene and would NEVER replace it but I could see adding a wooden version on the holy family to our holiday décor. Something like this?
I love our tree/nativity set-up this year. Every single ornament has a story. I can remember where we got it or who we got it from. And I can go on and on about the nativity. What’s your favorite holiday decor item? Do you love it because it’s pretty or does it have a deeper meaning for you?
