ho ho ho! here we go!

we are nearly ready!

last week we got the ball rolling with our new advent calendar (made by mommy).. and finally got some of the Christmas decorations underway.. i'm still working on the wreath for the door.. i had it all done and i found it crumpled on the floor after the last guest arrived at our annual holiday party.. which went off without a hitch i might add.  except for the fact that the only pic i have is one of auntie lee-lee and the little munchkin.. somebody forgot to take pictures (papa bear:-)

here's the family photo in front of the tree we picked out last weekend. i thought i was going to use it for the family Christmas cards but decided to wait and see if I could get a better shot for the new year's cards instead..

the little munchkin loves her auntie lee-lee who came all the way from jax to celebrate with us.. h family style! we love her so!


so each year we give a nod to the hubby's alma mater with our garnet and gold Christmas decor. this year is especially bittersweet since the big man himself is stepping down. go noles!

so i tried my hand this year at some hand made ribbon ornaments. thanks to martha stewart, she's my absolute fav!
in addition to our growing collection of garnet and gold ornaments we add to the tree little treasures tied to any of our favorite Christmas past times and gifted ornaments from friends and family.
 my new favorite ornament  added to the tree this year is this little reindeer given to us by a new friend and super mommy of the cutest twin little girls...
stay tuned.. this week i'll be trying my hand at some hand made gifts.. this black apple doll (thanks for the idea leslie!) and some little velvet belts for the munckin. still adding to the decor for the holidays.. any suggestions on a kid friendly coffee table and dinner table centerpiece are welcome!!
