Show and Tell Tuesday - Christmas Decorations

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  This year is what I call Christmas lite at the Fisher house for a couple of reasons: 1.) It's been crazy with the renovation and the move that I'm still trying to get settled in and 2.) We are celebrating Christmas in California so we will be gone for two weeks.  I figure, no need add to go all out with the decorations.

That being said, Christmas is my FAVORITE holiday and the time between Thanksgiving and New Years is the BEST! I love, love it, love it.  So during this time of the year, it's like Christmas threw up in our house-normally.

This year is a little more subdued, but I still want to share so I'm linking up with Andrea at Momfessionals for Show and Tell Tuesday - Christmas Decorations!
I guess we can start with the Christmas tree!  I'm sorry that it's not lit up.  It's on a timer that only my hubby knows how set and I am not messing with it. We don't have a topper because I have not found the perfect one yet - it's been three years.  My kids are getting impatient with me....

A closer look at the ornaments.

Every year, I replace the boys picture with the current year school picture from October.  This is the first year Mark had a school picture taken in Pre-K.

This is our mantle in the family room. I haven't decided how to hang the stockings yet since as you can see, the mantle space is almost nonexistent. 

My boys' gingerbread houses displayed in the dining room.

This is the last picture I have of these boys with Santa so I display it every year. They stopped believing in Santa Magic 2 years ago. Look how little they were.

This is the heart of our home - the kitchen. Yes, Winter our elf is hanging from our chandelier.  He's a party animal.

My Amarylla bulb that I sprouted a month ago.  So excited to see it bloom. I had to tie the stalk and leaves to the shutter because...

this happens if I don't.

Did I mentioned that I love Bath and Body Works candles? They had them on sale for $8.50 last weekend and I might have gone a little crazy.
 Ornaments in glass. So pretty, yet so easy...

Our kitchen table. I had three reindeers for my three boys but someone broke the littlest reindeer.  Clue - he is also the littlest of my three boys.

 Until I can find a replacement, there are only two.

That's all I've got. I promise that next year will be better.  It will be like Christmas threw up again.  Happy Holidays!
