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

Christmas Tour of Homes at Kellys Korner

Christmas has taken over our home!
And I couldn't be happier.

December is my favorite month of year, so I was excited to have my holiday decor up and ready before the 1st of the month.

I have so much more I would like to buy/add/make to our decorations (Thank you Pinterest and blogging world) I will have to wait until next few years.  My budget only allows for a few new pieces each Christmas.

Here is a little sneak peak at our Christmas decor. Enjoy!

Here is our tree. I attempted the mesh for the first time this year. I love the way it looks on the tree, especially at night with the lights.  I think after another year's practice I will get better at hanging it! But it's alright for year one! You can read more about our tree here.

Under the tree is Reagan's Polar Express train. He loves this thing. And yes. That is Percy attached to the rear. This kid might be an engineer one day. 

Here is one of my bookshelves. I love and keep all things Santa here. 
I have some stiching pieces my MIL Sylvia made me,a favorite quote from the movie Elf, and my mini-collection of Jim Shore. I also keep Reagan's "Cookies for Santa" plate here.  I plan on ordering a new one with all of the kids on it... if you've seen a cute on anywhere- please let me know! 

On the lower shelf I have some Mud Pie Christmas frames.

I have a couple of Christmas throw pillows on the couch.
Don't mind Lily just chilling on the couch in her typical spot.

Another bookshelf

On the bar in the kitchen I keep our advent house and tree.
I will do a separate blog post about this later!

Our stockings are hung on the fireplace. The babies will share the "My First Christmas" stocking this year and then I will order them matching Pottery Barn ones like ours for next year.  The one to the far left is for the dogs to share. They will probably get the boot next year, or else their stockings will have to find a new home because our 5 hooks will be full!

A little tree by our front door.

I love my "believe" blocks above our TV.

Here is our entry table.

Reagan just adores his Little People Nativity set.
I love watching him play and act out baby Jesus' birth! So adorable.

I have these reindeer accents from Crate and Barrel in my kitchen.

I love this little vinyl my sister Jocelyn gave us last year.
 I haven't found the perfect spot for it yet, but for now it's hanging on our hutch.

I made these two wreathes for the kids' rooms this year.
Reagan is so excited to have a bit of Christmas in his room!

I'm excited to see all of your Christmas decor.
I get so much inspiration from all of you!

love it all! I am the same I buy a few pieces every year. Next year I will be able to get a new {small} tree for our entry & maybe Breannas room and stuff for our entry table we are getting from my parents!

I am hoping to get a post such as this done sometime this week. I am taking a much needed mini break from the blog!
