Christmas Is Almost Here!!!

It is almost Christmas Day!!! I feel like a little kid the closer it gets!!! I think I am ready except for the food for Christmas day dinner.

Gifts are purchased, wrapped and under the tree. I have a few things to organize and I think we will be good to go. I love the last few days right before Christmas, don’t you?

Now that it is almost here I thought I would show you a few bits and pieces of my home.

You already caught a glimpse of my mantel. I thought you might like to see the rest of it and maybe a few close-ups……..

I had so much fun sprinkling California snow on my tree and mantel this year. I like the way it gives the mantle texture.

This is a console table at the back of my family room. I have a figurine that represents each son. The soldier is for my oldest son, the rocking horse for my middle son and the Santa is for my youngest. I can't have a Christmas without these little guys!!!

The green chair and ottoman is where everyone likes to sit. This chair is so comfy. The small checked chair is really nice for reading with it’s higher arms.

I would like to leave you with a picture that is truly at the center of our family Christmas. In spite of all the lights, packages and ornaments we as a family are celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior.
