Merry Christmas 2011

I love Christmas, I love to decorate for theseason. I have added some new pieces to my collections.My parents came last night and allowed the boys to each open 1 present. Dax loves nutcrackers, so he got a new one to add to his collection. Drew opened up a nativity scene that is for the whole family to enjoy. My boys are growing up in a Catholic school, I am very proud at the job they have done teaching them about the real meaning of Christmas. The other night my youngest was in the school play and it was just lovely and he really understands the reason we celebrate Christmas and the birth of baby Jesus. I have taken a few pictures of some of my decorations for you to enjoy. I have not really scrapbooked much lately, well not for I don't really have much to post in that department. I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year. If you are one of my ladies who take my scrapbook classes I really want to "Thank You" for your support in making my classes such a success, I couldn't do this without you all! Thank you so much! I hope to see you all next year!
Merry Christmas and Lots of Love,

This is my mantle with our Nutcracker collection. I also received and ceramic piece from my grandmothers passing that I adore, it is the 3 caroling children that also serves as a candle holder. I will cherish this forever! This is the new Nativity set that we received this year from my mother.Anyone who knows me, knows that I love frogs! All shapes and sizes. This is a cookie jar that has a story behind it! My mom bought it from Gumps. Well, my darling husband decided to decapate the frog. He broke its head. I was DEVASTATED! So after feeling (I guess) really bad, he located another one through google, because Gumps no longer had them. Wa- laaa I got another frog cookie jar!
This is our pencil Christmas tree. I love it! It's not over the top big... its really skinny! Works for our house, gives us more room for family! It doesn't require too many ornaments either. At the entrance you can see my collections of Santa's. My mother said she has many more that she found at my grandmothers house, so I will be adding to this collection next year.

I hope you all enjoyed a little Christmas tour through my home. Ha haha kinda like the Tour of Homes during the Holidays, via the web! LOL- enjoy!
