Christmas Time is Here!

Hello All!

I've been missing for the past few weeks. My last post was about fall and now it's time for Christmas! I can't believe how fast this time has come. It seems just yesterday I was getting ready for the first day of school and now this first semester is almost over!

These past few weeks that I haven't blogged, I've had strep throat, Thanksgiving, my birthday, Christmas decorating, and a busy time in my college class (that is now over! yippee!!).

Here's what's been going on in our house over the past week. Here's the dining room and our two trees we got on Black Friday at Wal-Mart. I love them. My sister got me the cardinal plates for my birthday. Pardon the empty candlesticks. My mom found some candles for me, but I don't have them yet.

Here's the mantle. It has lights, but you can't really see. My wonderful aunt made me this wreath last year and I absolutely love it. Since the wall behind my fireplace is a peacock blue, my theme is peacocks:)

Here's my piano. I have two deer and a wonderful nativity set. I've never had a nativity set until now. My wonderful friend (see earlier post)found out I didn't have one and she gave me this one that she got in Africa this summer.

A closeup of the nativity.

You have to have Christmas candy lying around:)

Here's my tree.

And with the flash off.

Here's the tree in our front living room. Nick got to decorate this room, so notice Jovie's stocking hanging on the lamp behind the tree! (Sorry just noticed the tree skirt seems a little crooked)

Thanks for taking a tour of my house. Tonight I will try to remember to go outside and take a picture of our house
with the lights Nick put up. They look amazing! Until then...have a wonderful evening and stay warm:)

Your home is gorgeous, Audie! I'd love to see it IRL. I looooove the peacock theme! So ca-yute.
