Christmas around our house

I am finally getting around to posting some pics of my Christmas decor I did this year. I started strong and then kind of fizzled out, so here is what I have inside. I "festified" my kitchen light fixture with some fresh tree clippings and some snowflake ornaments.
I added some fresh evergreen on this old door too along with a stocking and sign. I just LOVE fresh greenery! I get it FREE from the Christmas tree farm because it is leftover after they trim the trees. It smells so good! I also love the cleanup after Christmas. No storage...just straight to the woods or trash.

My shelf in the kitchen with a snowy scene. I found this wooden lamb at my favorite store before Christmas. He will come back out in the spring for Easter time too.

My mantle is ready for Christmas. I planned to make us all stockings this year, but have not done that yet. Maybe next year??? Santa can fill these again this year.

I made this wreath with some reindeer ornaments I found-$2 for 6 of them. They are glittery, but you can't see it here. I added some cinnamon sticks tied with fabric and some pinecones.

My cookie cutter kitchen tree.

Hot chocolate and goodies in the kitchen. There is nothing better than having a cup of hot chocolate filled with marshmallows in front of the fire with a blanket after all the little elves are tucked into bed!

An old colander with some more greenery and my favorite wooden candy canes with some glass ornaments I filled with fake snow and added some ribbon.

The kids were rolling out the dough for some yummy sugar cookies. They love to eat the dough while they roll them out. I think they must have caught mommy doing that!

Makenna is testing out her creation. It looks yummy! Merry Christmas from our house to yours!
