Weekend full of decorating

We certainly had a busy weekend.  Our house is decorated inside and out. We payed a visit to Santa; although Beckett was too scared to sit on his lap so we ended up taking a family picture instead of just the boys, & we did a little Christmas shopping.  Here are some pictures of how our house turned out......

Front door. Fresh Fraser Fur wreath
Added a wreath to our hallway and used the boys coat hooks to hang our stockings.  Ben made this shelf & hook combo a couple of months ago.  We will post the tutorial later.
This is just a simple wreath over the fire place but our dog Tregg posed for me so I had to post it.
I think this is my last year of having a "themed" tree. Right now most of our ornaments are bronze, gold or champaign. As the boys get older I'm sure we will have to add colorful lights and a few more ornaments to make it more "fun".
Beautiful tree lit up at night complete with a Lionel train.

Here are some of my favorite ornaments........

Can't forget the presents.......
This year I am using plain brown packaging paper and red velvet ribbon.  The paper is a lot less expensive then traditional wrapping paper and can be so fun to personalize.  These presents are for our nephew Jaxon and Beckett will have the chance to color all over them when he gets up from his nap :)

Here's to a happy and healthy holiday season!!
