Tis the Season

It's finally beginning to feel like Christmas around here...


Here are some of the decorations in the living room. While not formal by any means, it's a little "shinier" than the family room...

The family room is more fun. Pooh & Tigger have been around here forever. This litte tree was actually our first Christmas tree from our first little apartment back in the day. It's held up pretty well. The garland looks like candy, it's from my grandmother's tree on my dad's side. I always thought it was so fun.

Every year, Barnaby, the Christmas Elf leaves the kids outfits for their Christmas card picture, some other goodies & an ornament that usually represents something that they've loved or done in the past year. It's fun to see how their tastes & interests have changed through the years. We have lots of movies represented...Megan was obsessed with The Lion King when she was 4, Jordan spent most of her childhood watching the Wizard of Oz, Ben was enthralled with the Polar Express. We've got Buzz Lightyear, Harry Potter, American Girls, Beanie Babies, superheroes, graduation caps, Gators, Seminoles and, of course, LOTS of soccer balls.
