It's the most wonderful time of the year....

It truly is. I love Christmas season. It's festive everywhere. Everybody looks happy. The lights, the songs, the gifts, the food, the stress, the time off from work I love it all. So I try to make my house look festive during this time. We bought a 6.5 feet tree for our 2nd Christmas after we married and slowly built up my stock of ornaments and outdoor lights year after year. It may not be enough for most of you who have grown up celebrating Christmas season this way, but from where I came, this is a big deal. I am so glad I can do this and thankful that my husband shares the same enthusiasm. I make sure to send pictures to my Grandma every year, she is the reason I know Christmas and appreciate it as much as I do today.
Here is our tree in the living room that I adore.

And some of my favorite ornaments...

The Nativity set and White Santa with presents....

Dining Table centerpiece....

Family room...

I added some pinks and purples in the family room for baby, like this vase filled with purple ornaments and a tutu skirt wrapped around, a vase near fireplace filled with pinkish easter basket fillers.

We had some extra lights from outside that I placed inside fireplace to make it look like fire. Except for the green wire coming out of the fireplace and the extension cord, I love how the lights look like fire.

We don't have tree topper yet. May be for next year.

There it is. Christmas decor at our house. Simple, but special for us, especially since it is our baby's First Christmas.

Here is the cutie, getting ready to decorate the tree.
