Our Christmas House

Even though Christmas is only 4 days away, and I've been a terrible blogger lately, I'd still like to show our Christmas home this year.

I've never done anything like this to our mantel before. Mostly because it's awkwardly shaped like a triangle as opposed to straight on the wall, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.
This is the pianeo. With the mantel and the piano, I used fresh christmas tree trimmmings. You can get A TON of them at Lowe's for free.
You can't really tell in this picture but this is my little ECU tree that I put up every year. As a side note, you can see in the back the buffet table my mom built and installed while she was here.
Here is our Christmas tree! We don't have a matching tree just an "every kind of ornament imaginable" type of tree. and we love it!!
And finally, our outdoor lights. We've never been able to reach that top point but hopefully one day we will.

There are about 5 houses on our street that are total Griswold houses. It's awesome.

Tomorrow I'll try, TRY, to post about all our Advent activities.

Merry Christmas!!

Felt Advent Wreath

I've been meaning to post this. I made the boys a felt advent wreath to use during the week. They love getting to "light" the candles!
