My halls are decked

Don’t forget to join the Nativity Parade!

I got started early this year, on account of my Pier 1 post going up on Thanksgiving, but “get started” was about all I did. (Speaking of Pier 1…big fun and giveaways for you Utahans at 2 local Pier 1 locations next Wednesday. Stay tuned for the details. Or, if you’re not patient, you can check it out on Facebook now.) My tree sat in pieces with non-working lights in my family room for a week. We finally gave up and replaced it.

Every square inch is covered in ornaments.

But it might be my favorite one yet.

Santa’s bag is here, too (storing the throw pillows that aren’t festive Smile with tongue out).

There’s a little Christmas in the kitchen.

  1. Santa's bag is a really great idea! I always wonder what to do with all the non-holiday decor, and usually just throw it all under my bed or stuff it in a closet.

    My bag came from Down East. It's a Pottery Barn one but I got it for $14.95.

  14. Where did you get your tree? I LOVE it!!!

  15. Your children are immensely talented to do such a magnificent tree. And I'm very picky, so, that's a huge compliment. Extra marshmallows in the hot cocoa for all of them!
    You have a beautiful home, you should be very proud.
    Happy Christmas!

  16. Love the tree and really love the shutters. If they are missing after I come see you, well I apologize in advance. That picture of the boys is the best. Can't wait to come and see them both. Tell Campbell I am coming and remind him I am nice. :)

  17. Great job letting the kiddos do the tree! It looks great. And the Santa bag? Genius! Merry Christmas. (Oh and thanks for the Nativity Parade too … loved participating in that!) jules
