Oh Christmas Tree (s)

Well, the snow is FINALLY falling from the sky. December 17th and this is only the 2nd time snow has turned the ground white.  Rather crazy! Here is what it looked like out the back door earlier today.

Now that it is beginning to look like Christmas outside...Here is a little more Christmas inside - The Christmas tree(s)

Jynx decided she wanted to be part of the photo session!

You didn't really think there would be an angel or a star on top our tree did you? *I saw a really cool elf at TJ Maxx earlier and actually left her in the store /gulp* Anyway. The elf is holding a felt ornament made by {my Grandma.} the other ornament is a White House ornament given to us by a special friend that lives in D.C.

The tree in the living room isn't the only tree though. There is one in the kitchen.

I like how Santa is overseeing the confectionery ingredients!!! 

I LOVE the shadows of the elves. This elf has a much cuter shadow when it is a little darker and the kitchen lights are on. I giggle every night.

We have wooden Christmas trees made by my Grandma 

We can't forget the tree on the front porch. You can read more about this tree here!

There are a couple porcelain trees that light up and not nearly enough bottle brush trees throughout the house.

I also thought I would share a few things that are on our tree...

{Bubble lights}

An ornament from Jerusalem! I am pretty sure this is my most favorite thing that Barb gave me before she moved. 

This elephant has been on my Christmas tree for, well, ever!!!!

a spinner ornament. it is hung above one of the bubble lights. the spinner spins with the heat from the white lights, but it REALLY spins with the heat from the bubble lights

I do have some other things to share with you but they have to wait until after Christmas. Christmas cards and gifts can't be revealed yet.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I am on my way back to the kitchen to make more cookies and feed the sweet little Jynx.

Hugs and Best Christmas wishes!!!

  3. Wow - your house looks so festive! Love all your trees, especially the one in your living room! The elf is darling and those bubble lights remind me of my grandmother. She always had those on her tree...I can remember them as a child. Fun post - thanks for sharing!
