every little nook and cranny... {christmas home tour}

I *LOVE* Christmas and I love decorating...actually, let's be honest...I love all seasons and every excuse to throw a party! Anything to make our days a little happier and more festive.
{I apologize in advance that these are all phone pics. I took most of these as I was decorating Thanksgiving weekend and my plan was to go back and take proper pictures with my big camera, but then all the hustle + bustle of December started happening, and know how this story ends - ha!}

I have to start with this...Eeeeek! I'm so happy!! This is my little Christmas present to myself this year. Do you see my littles' handprints behind Mary and Joseph??! And oh my, Grace's little fingerprint is the angel's face and Hudson's is baby Jesus' face. Love, love, love!
I have yet to take full pictures of our 4 trees...soon!...but for now, here are snippets of our decorations throughout the house...this is my vintage wreath which I repurposed as a topper in our kitchen tree this year. Makes me happy every time I look at it.
Our mantle...
{I looked and looked for Hudson's Santa hat and FINALLY found it a week later - whew! It's now safely tucked away in his stocking, ready for Christmas morning.}
I love vintage stuff and I love pink + aqua + red + mint green, so that's what I use all throughout our house!
A little corner of our kitchen...
I love having the Nativity set that Noonie gave the littles last year so they have one that they can touch and not worry about breaking!
Even the wrapping is in the pink / aqua / red / green scheme - ha!
Our room has lighter, softer decorations...
And I have my favorite vintage tinsel trees and bottlebrush trees hidden all throughout too!
You can see why it's easy to pull stuff for our annual {North Pole Breakfast}! It all sort of goes together - ha!
11 days until Christmas!
Can't wait!
