Holiday Tour of Homes

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is the decorations. Everything just seems prettier and cozier once the Christmas decorations are out. I also LOVE seeing other people's houses at Christmas time. So I decided to join in the fun at the Holiday Tour of Homes hosted by The Nester.

Welcome to our house!
I get really excited about getting our tree and I am very particular about which one comes home with us. It must be REAL, very full and most importantly, very fat. This baby meets both of those requirements with ease...mission accomplished.
A few of my favorite ornaments on this tree:
1. Sydney & Miller ornaments! 2. Jason proposed with an orange M&M. He gave this to me that year.
3. We are a house divided. (Even though it was a bad year for us...GO TIGERS!) 4. An ornament for our first Christmas
5. Luke 2:9-14  6. My mom had this made for me when I graduated from Clemson.

Our big tree lives in our living room, but since the den is where we spend most of our time, I decided we needed a smaller version in there with us. I tried to get creative and put this little guy in an urn. I stole the idea from my aunt and let me tell you, it looked really cute. Right up until it fell over and the urn broke. Thank goodness I hadn't put the ornaments on yet. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the accident so this will have to do:

Stockings hung by the chimney with care:

Our foyer is one of my favorite decorated spaces. I love my nativity set and it's a daily reminder of why we celebrate Christmas.

The kitchen got in on the fun this year too. How cute are the cupcake ornaments?

OK, that pretty much covers it...now I want to see your decorations! So head over to The Nester and join in the fun!
