Christmas Tour 2010

We love Christmas Time around here. And I love decorating- so put the two together....and you have alot of laundry piled up, alot of frozen dinners, and alot of messes.ha Seriously, its been fun decorating our new home that we just recently remodeled (and still have lots to do!)Kept it alitle simple---but come on in, and enjoy some Christmas at the Scott home!
I love my little sign by the door that I can personalize for different holidays/occasions!
I made this wreath last year. Its whimsical and fun.
 We have this lit up at night with the tree upstairs---I love it! It feels so homey! I love my "kissing ball" that I added this year, too!

 To the right is my dining room, and I loved making the centerpieces which I explained how to make them here.
View of dining room from Hallway.
 To the right is our "piano room"- don't be fooled---usually all of the boy's toys are all over the place. One day we hope to make it into a grown-up room---an office. I love having the tree here because you can see it from the road and view it from the family room!
My tree is alittle funky and whimsical and I love it---lime green, red, gold and emerald green. Me and my sister got all of our ornaments/sprigs a couple of years ago after Christmas when everything was all marked down!
I love my topper! So fun and crazy!
I love my manger scene that my sis-in-law gave me a long time ago!
 View of the Family room looking into the piano room....its so pretty at night with the tree and mantel lit up! 

 I loved decorating my kitchen. The wreath above the stove is lit at night! Its so pretty! I have a few more decorations to the left where the counter and desk is---but forgot to take a pic.
 My cookie sheet with cookies countdown!! Got this from Hallmark this year and we love it!
A few of the the decorations on the counter. I love making some Christmas picture frames this year! You can read about them here!
One of my boys broke the top to one of my apothecary jars- I was heartbroken. But I have found lots of different ways to use it---here it is upside down with ornaments inside and a candle on top!
I had so much fun decorating my mantel this year. I loved adding the personal touch of our monogram to the Left. I love how the lights on the little trees and the garland give off a beautiful reflection in the mirror when lit up at night! I also added one of my home-made Christmas pictures and added a ornament in a frame like my friend, Julie's.
Also, I just put a few ornaments in a glass hurricane and set it on top of the base of a candle that I already had.
This is the view of our tree from the top of the stairs. I love it at night when the garland on the mantel, the tree and the banisters are all lit up!
This is the first year for this Charlie Brown tree. It used to be in my 3rd grade classroom with colored lights and candy ornaments! I am going to hopefully get some more things after Christmas--but the theme is brown and white zebra print with some olive green......

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas! Joining up with The Nester and Kelly Korner's Christmas Tour Parties!

Remember--Jesus is the REASON for the SEASON!!
