I Love Christmas!

I have been really excited to finally have our own home to decorate for the holidays. So, I don't know if I went a little overboard, but it's definitely festive! Here are some pics of our decor - some tacky, some fun. You have to have a little of both at Christmas!

Our lovely tree...

The Nativity scene - can you find the baby Jesus?
Garland on our banister... look closely and you can see me in my cute pink pajamas!
These funny letters Katie and I made at an Enrichment activity - a little tacky, a little funky
The beautiful wreath my mom made me for Christmas - she's so talented!
My attempt at sewing pillow covers. They probably won't make it to next year!
Even Jovi was feelin' the Christmas spirit. We bought this as a joke, then just put it on randomly to calm her down. She HATES it! (I don't blame her!)

Our gingerbread house... it was much cuter before we got to it!

I think there must be a secret memo out there that says teachers love snowmen. All these snowman things are a little tacky for me, but they remind me of the cuties that gave them to me so I just smile. Luckily Jon is supportive of my habit. :)
Merry Christmas!

Um do you realize I have the exact same nativity?! I love it because the angel hangs! Anyway, it was good to see all of your decorations, since I didn't get to see it in person. We need to hang out soon, maybe we can ring in the New Year together again!?

Cute cute cute decorations! Your home looks nice and cozy with all those warm and inviting decorations. Thank you for sharing!
Also, I wanted to add that you guys are very cool to have waited until Christmas morning to open your envelope to see the gender of your baby! What a wonderful Christmas present! :) Happy day!
