Scrooge this!

The house is still under construction.  We have no kitchen, the backyard looks like something out of Star Wars, and the seven of us have been relocated (and confined) to the second floor.  Thinking about the holidays has been the furthest thing from my mind, but, today on December 1st, just like clockwork, the elf-on-the-shelf has reappeared into our lives and the snow has just started to fall outside.  Christmas is truly right around the corner so I better get my act together, unwrap my gorgeous magnolia wreath (http://spacetograce.blogspot.com/2011/12/countdown-to-christmas.html) and dress up what I can of this house for the season.  I refuse to be a Scrooge!

The Santas will be hung,

 
We'll add some swag.
 
 

We'll put out the Nativity scene,

 
And get a tree,
 
 
And wrap some presents,

 
 
And put out some more Santas
 
 
In hopes that the real one will be reading our lists
 
 

And making all of our wishes come true :)

  1. The tree is perfect. I love the birds and nests and pine cones. Mother Nature is the best designer on the planet! The outdoor trees look like trees of crystal with their ice coating. Everything looks so enchanting and festive. Hope your holiday is jolly. Christmas decoration ideas
