It's Christmas Time in the Country...

I LOVE Christmas.  I love the sights, smells, sounds, tastes...everything!  Plus, the fact that the reason for the season is so close to my heart.

This is our first year having a house, as opposed to a basement.  We took full advantage and decorated outside.  In the interest of saving money (I just recently found out it does not actually grow on trees), we re-used pumpkins, lights from my birthday party, and a sled my brother made me a long time ago.  Here are some pics!

I LOVE this sled.  Caleb (and Daddy) did a great job!

I also re-used some wedding decor.

Red and green was all I had, but they turned out alright.

***Christmas flag coming soon!***

Love my quilted snowman that I got from a craft fair last year.

Someday we will get all fancy with icicle lights stuff, but these work for this year :)



  1. Very nice! Your money growing on trees comment reminded me of an argument we had when you were about 4 years old: "I'm sorry, Danielle, I don't have the money to get that."
    "It's okay, Mommy, just got to the ATM."
    "That won't work today, Danielle, we don't have any extra money right now."
    "I know, Mommy, you just said you didn't have money. If you go to the ATM they will just give you money and then we can buy the _____."

    1. Lol, I definitely remember thinking that. :P

  2. hahaha to your conversation above :)
    and i think you did a wonderful job decorating!! the sled is precious!!
