Christmas All Through The House--The Front Living Room

And now we are moving out of the dining room and on into the front living room...
 Oh wait. Before we leave I want to mention one thing...everything we typically have on the walls gets removed and something Christmas-y gets put in its place:
 On these walls I have a old pictures of a Christmas scene and a poster from a play Lu was in years ago:
 Ok, lets continue on...The tree is the same as we have every single year, filled with old, new and handmade ornaments. We can spend a lot of time walking around it and remembering.
 Its sorts of crazy looking, but its so much ours and I love it.
 Totally should've had a fire going...
 The Santa collection still makes me happy...



It just all comes together on this table, more so than if I had them all scattered everywhere through out the house.

The old gumball machine filled with the tiny Shiny Brites drives Bud to distraction. He keeps asking if he can put a coin in and get one out. To which I say no. I am assuming this will happen in secret at some point before it gets packed away again, but one can only hope that the 7 year old finds it within himself to show some restraint.
 The mantle was really throwing me for a loop this year. Until we decided it needed more light and more red and there you go. If I come across some more unique looking candles I will be adding a few more.

This was what the front room looked like exactly one week ago...

And today...
Next tour will take us through the kitchen and into the back living room!

Love it all especially the framed Christmas pictures...I picked up many of these old frames at the thrift store this year and am looking forward to framing some of my own! Thanks for the great idea!
