Final Days of 12 Days of Christmas Challenge

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

I fell behind yet again... this month is flying by friends, which makes me super sad as I am loving this winter filled with seasonal treats, lots of shopping for presents, coats, and scarves, and everything that encompasses Christmas time. So today I promised myself I would finish Aly's blogging challenge--better late than never, right???
Day 11: New Years Resolutions for 2011
I am working on these currently so this will have to wait a few days while I sit and ponder =)
Day 12: Holiday Decorations
It's not anything special, but I am loving the way our house feels during the comfortable and "homey" to me--love having a mantle to finally hang stockings on, too!! I have so many crafty projects I want to complete for next year, but with so much hustle and bustle, we didn't get to do as much as I originally hoped for this Christmas
The Man Cave Tree--our special ornaments/"artificial" tree ;)
 Before we decorated our real tree upstairs in the formal living room
 All lit up for the holidays...
 Our other tree is my favorite... white, silver, and gold!
And of course my favorite PB stockings embroidered with our names

 Our entryway table with my new mercury glass lamp
 Outside...we ONLY do white lights and kept it very simple this year--candles in the windows, too! Next year, I can't wait to add wreaths and nutcrackers to the front porch!
Day 13: Favorite Cookie Recipe
I love anything with peppermint so these are RIGHT up my alley!
