Its Beginning to look alot like Christmas

I love this holiday season - I love the sights, the smells, the sounds - every bit of it!  There is something about this season that just fille my heart! 
So here a glimpse of our home during the holidays!

Wooden Manger Scene - a staple in the home I grew up in.  This was my favorite of all the nativities my mom had, and she gave it to me.  I just love it!

My fireplace mantel.  Yes, I know there are only 2 stockings at the moment...I am making Brant, Emmalee and I matching ones...they're just not finished yet and I cannot stand the idea of an empty mantel!

All of our Christmas cards - just love these!!!
The Coca-Cola Santa Snowglobe!  Emmalee loves to listen to the music and watch the train go round and round.

And this is still one of my all-time favorite decorations because it is exactly what the season is to me - JOY!
This is in my fornal dining room - this is the coffee filter wreath I made and my kissing angels.  I love these angels - they were my mom's and in our house every year for Christmas when I was growing up.  She gave them to me this year!

 This is Santa's cookie plate!

And at last, our tree! 

These are some of my favorite ornaments!
Brant and I decided to start the tradition where Emmalee (and any furutre children) get to pick out a new ornament every year.  Well Brant suggested that I make Em's ornament for her first Christmas, so I did.  I just found a small wooden "E" at Hobby Lobby, then covered it with left over fabric from her Christmas outfit.  I love the way it turned out.  But I also love the "Baby's First Christmas" bear that my mom gave Em yesterday! 

And of course in my house, the tree isn't complete without a few gifts under the tree!
