CHRISTmas not holiday in this house!

A personalized present this year from my Mom
See that red button? Push it and the nativity star lights up, sings and tells the story of baby Jesus. A gift one year, from my Mother-in-law. The cupcakes LOVE it! They play it over AND OVER AGAIN (and over and over).
CHRISTmas angel wings for the tree.
A special wreath made by my cutie, I mean tough guy Tub-a-wub, Storm Trooper, Jedi, Lego Man Collector Guy (and many more names he has for himself).
CHRISTmas garland homemade by the big brother in the family. My big 8 year old.

And a large family always has A LOT of stockings. Where am I gonna put the 'Bun in the oven's' stocking next year?
Happy Birthday Jesus!!!!!

Love the personalized teddies from your Mum, and that wreath - must do that with my kids.

I love to see other people's Christmas Decor. Thanks for sharing yours.

I am blogging daily until Christmas Eve about my decor, traditions and food here in Northern Ireland.

I love how you have the stockings displayed (I'm sure you'll be able to squeeze one more in there)! Kids decorations are so cute - I still have the hand garland my daughter made when she was in 1st grade!

Great decorations made by little hands! These are always the most special each year they are pulled out to use again.

Alex said...

I love all of the handmade decorations and ornaments...they hold much more meaning and long lasting memories.

Mrs. Miles said...

I pushed and PUSHED the red button but could not hear the story.

Bet out of all you treasure the handmade chain the best because your children made it. I just saw one on a show where they put a scripture inside each of 25 links of one as a advent calendar. The kids got to open and read one each day.

Thank you so much for showing us.
