Even though we didn't put up our tree, we did decorate for Christmas. The nativity set sits prominently on a table in the living room. A collection of stars are on the mantle. Our shelf is filled with our many Christmas books. New red and white snowflake pillows are on the couch (got them at Target--have you seen them?). You can't miss Christmas at our house, even though we are missing that tree. So I thought I would show you a few pictures of festivity. Bubba and I filled a leather chest we normally keep CDs in with some greenery and berries we had in our Christmas boxes. We added some stars ( I get a little obsessed with stars at Christmastime...) and an adorable bird I received as a birthday present. I think it looks cute sitting in the midst of all that Christmassy stuff.
Last year, I was given this cool jewelry tree as a gift. At Christmastime, I think it looks great showcasing some beautiful ornaments...a Christmas tree of sorts. What do you think?
I saw this at my doctor's office the other day, and I must admit I am tempted to buy one for the kids...isn't it cute?

I hope you are enjoying the signs of Christmas around your place too--even if you're a tree-skipper this year like me.
I have been married to my best friend for 21 years. I am mom to a 15 year old daughter and a 11 year old son who keep life hopping. I also have another son, Aidan, who lives in heaven now after sharing four months with us on earth. I love to talk, love to laugh, and am a recovering diet coke addict. I love Jesus the most, and can't imagine living life without the Hope I have in Him. I have wonderful friends and family who put up with me well. I am extremely thankful for the full life I live...my Big-G-Good life.
