{It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas}



Unlike my last post this post is going to be slam packed full of pictures and not a whole lot of words.

You ready?

Good.

Because here we go..

{My kids love these plush singing things. I like them because they can mess with them and they do not break. When the
hanging Santa talks he is talking about missing a ladder and his legs swing back and forth.}

{Little tree with lights}

I would love to put lights on the other tree on the other side of our yard and add icicles but that is my husbands job and I can’t say he is all that thrilled about doing it… oh well!

I have little touches of Christmas in the bedrooms and bathrooms but I don’t want to overkill you on this Christmas post. So hopefully this is enough for you!

Hope you enjoyed ALL of the pictures!

  7. I love your Candyland Christmas! All of this would look good on a white tree. You asked about my mercury glass candlesticks. All of mine have been bought on sale....Of all of them only three were expensive. I got those three at Pottery Barn but they were on sale. All the others I've gotten at Target, Ross, TJ Maxx and Hobby Lobby. I've paid from $5 to $12. Actually, I think I got the three from Pottery Barn for $38 or something like that.

    I can't seem to be able to pass them up. Target has some right now. I was able to resist at full price but if they are still there at 50% or 75% it will be hard to not buy them.

    I really don't need any more...I have them everywhere...and also have votives and small vases too. But I love the stuff.
