Come on in...Christmas Decorations!!

EEK!!!  I absolutely LOVE peeking into everyone's homes all cozy and decorated for Christmas!!  I've been looking forward to this day since Andrea posted it months ago!  I'm linking up with Andrea again today to share our Christmas decorations!! 

 I have to warn you.  I'm totally keepin' it real in this post.  Long story short, but our tree is missing the top decorations.  I couldn't reach and family was coming, so I threw the top of the tree decor into the garage!!  You'll see!!  hahahaha!

Welcome to our home....all decorated for Christmas!!  (Pardon the shoes...didn't think they were gonna make the picture!)

I took some at night and some during the day.  This year I opted for new stockings, but I haven't found the perfect ones for the parents!  Nixon's has a dog, Ebby Lee's has a ballerina, and Bowen's has a train.  They couldn't be better for the kiddos, but I'm still looking for ours!

Don't worry....the top of the tree is on our to do list this week!  This is the first year we broke a TON of ornaments!!  The kiddos helped a lot and the hardwood floors were not our friend!  Bowen also did a lot of snagging off the tree!  Seriously...we probably lost a good 10 ornaments!

The buffet in our dining room is one of my favorite things to decorate.  I tried to go more neutral colors in the dining room.

A random goodie :)

Another view of the dining room 

The bathroom has a little Christmas fun as well.  That little Christmas tree was made by my grandfather.  My kiddos love getting to turn it on/off.

Some fun place mats we have in the kitchen.

Our elf, Sparky, was enjoying a little marshmallow bath.  hahaha!

A fun little tree in the kiddo's bathroom.  The bathroom got a makeover!!  I have a few finishing touches before I show you the results, but I LOVE it!

You guys should join Andrea and link up your Christmas decorations!!  Can't wait to see!!

Love it! Where did you find the glass you put your ornaments in? I have been searching high and low for one exactly this shape and have been unsuccessful :(

Erika Slaughter said...

I found it at a local flea market. Have you tried TJ Maxx/HomeGoods?

Erika Slaughter said...

As soon as I get home, I'll look and let you know.

Erika Slaughter said...

I'll report back as soon as I get home. :)

My daughter totally dropped her ornament from her first Christmas on our hardwoods as well and it broke. I'm still slightly distraught deep inside! eek! She felt awful so I had to put on my brave face and laugh even tho I was totally sobbing within! :-(
I love you "keeping it real" though with the top of the tree. Makes me feel better that the bottom half of my tree isn't decorated due to a 16 month old who can't leave it all alone! hahaha

Placemats are from tabletop truths.com. :)

Sarah Smith said...

Oh my goodness! I love your monogrammed Christmas bathroom towels! Where did you get them?!

I love your taste, Erika!
