It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

It's officially Christmastime in our household. Which means we put up our tree and decorations to the tune of the Carpenter's Christmas Portrait, which by the way happens to be my favorite Christmas album. As a child, I remember my dad playing it every year while my family put up the tree. Listening to that album brings back memories of all my past Christmases. I didn't put quite as many decorations out as I normally do. I decided against putting greenery and berry garland on all my ledge shelves. Here are a few quick phone pictures of what we did today.

Our skinny little tree

Nativity set on the piano

Ornaments in a hurricane

Holly berry plates on kitchen wall

Ornaments in an apothecary jar on kitchen shelf

Ornaments in an Arthur Court bowl on the kitchen island

Berry and snowflake wreath on the front door

Star berry wreath on the back of the front door

Ruby's first experience with Christmas

My "helpers," don't they look thrilled?

Ruby is even ready for Christmas with her new collar

She laid like this literally the whole time we decorated
