Today's theme for the Holiday Blog Challenge goes along with everything we've been doing tonight (we started to decorate our Christmas tree). Today is all about Holiday Decor.
I live for Christmas time. It really is my favorite time of year. I get excited when Christmas decorations are sneaking in at Target while the Halloween costumes are still out. I'm not mad that Christmas music was being played on the radio a few days before Thanksgiving. Yes. I'm one of those people. So of course Christmas is one of the only holidays I actually decorate the house for. The Hubs hates Christmas but is nice enough to put on a happy face and get on the roof to put the lights on the house. He also lets me add a new little something to our outside decor every year. This year it was a set of 3 lighted gift boxes for the yard!!!
When it comes to Christmas, I collect snowmen and Nativity scenes. I think I gravitated towards snowmen because my Mom decorates in all Santa's. I don't know where I got my Nativity scene obsession. I still have my very first scene that I used to put out in my bedroom when I lived at my parents. My collection now includes the Willow Tree Nativity, my all time favorite, all the way to the Little People Nativity (and I did not buy it for my kids). This weekend, I'll have everything set up and I'm sure I'll post a pic or twelve!
I just can't wait for my newest Christmas decor craft. I'm not going to blab what it is until it's completed but all I can say is acrylic paint, empty Wallflower plug ins, and apothecary jars!!!
Here's a few pics of some of our decor from years past
