Christmas Decorations

*UPDATE* Kelly over at Kelly's Korner is doing her annual Home Christmas Tour, so I thought I would join in on the fun!

Better late than never right? I didn't put up all the snowmen that I usually do this year, I'm still in transition mode in the basement and can't decide what exactly I want to do, so I didn't want to clutter it more because I was nervous it would make it harder for me to decide (which I don't need any help in that department right now).

So here is most of our decorations (mainly trees are my decor this year)....

 The tree in our kitchen
 Johnny the Elf (the girls named their Elf on the Shelf Johnny, ha!)
 I thought it would be fun to make the plates look Christmasy

 My wreath which I'm still loving!
 Small ornaments that I found at Target that I couldn't live without, fun splash of color for the kitchen table
 Our main tree. Its kind of a hodge podge of ornaments, which I love about it. The 'main' ornaments are all red and silver, but we've got so many handmade ornaments, and each year we let the girls pick out an ornament to add to the tree as well.

 Addaline's tree. It has small cupcake ornaments on it, and she LOVES it! I used my cricut for the first time to make the signs for above 3 of our trees. Macie is kind of going through a 'I'm not so sure Santa is real' phase so I wanted to remind her to 'Believe.'
 Macie's tree, pink and silver!
 The countdown is on, and have I mentioned I haven't finished my shopping?! Looking at this countdown every day makes me a little nervous
 Homemade ornaments are the best!
Can't forget this plate!

So there is our decorations! Not much, but just enough I believe. I plan to get some more decor the day after Christmas, for CHEAP! Which I'm super excited about! Next year I want some fun topiaries next to the front door, and garland around the door as well. I'd also like to make a BIG ornament wreath to hang on the outside of the house.

The decorations look awesome! I especially like the pink trees, but I'm biased because I'm a bit obsessed with the color :)

I also like the idea of putting "believe" above the trees. If you haven't already, play Macie the song "Believe" by Josh Groban from The Polar Express soundtrack, and maybe watch the movie. Both are great for the Santa thing. Because in a way, Santa is real to all of us, just not realistically like what we realize as we grow up. :)
