Whew..That’s a lot of partying!  I hope that you all enjoy yourselves.  If you frequent often there are lot’s of repeats considering I started decorating 2 weeks before Thanksgiving! *smiles* 
We shall start in the kitchen because that is my favorite place during the holidays!
november2008 077 My little snowman that is in front of our kitchen sink.  He is finally starting to feel at home in this hot southern state (Florida) because of the snow flakes that have formed above…
december2008 023 These snowflakes were made on a previous post, here.

Onto the dining/living room. 
december2008 027 This little snowman plays plenty of music during the Christmas season.  His little antlers light up and sway back and forth…He’s just a lot of fun!
december2008 028 Santa’s key….It hangs on my china cabinet until Christmas Eve…Then the girls put it under our front mat so that Santa can come in.  I hope we never lose this little thing, other wise the kids might think that Santa won’t be able to come inside!
november2008 075 Inside my china cabinet I keep it simple….
november2008 082 november2008 078 november2008 092 I made this ribbon garland, if you’d like a little more information about it, you can read about it here.
november2008 131 november2008 128 november2008 145 On to the den…Where the kids Christmas tree is as well as another snowman of mine…
november2008 136 They picked everything out on this tree as well as decorated it.  They are so very proud of themselves!
november2008 137 Our hall door leading to the bedrooms holds a very important part of our Christmas season…The Advent cal.  The girls fight over who’s going to change the date every morning.  And it’s where our stockings are hung!
november2008 079 Our bedroom decorations…
Our bedroom…
november2008 140 Kayla’s bedroom…
