I wish I could leave my Christmas decorations up all year! They are just so pretty (if I do say so myself). I’ve been decorating for a week now. Every year I like to add a little bit more decor which is always fun and exciting! Our living room is all elegant with creams and golds! I always love nativity sets. This one is very special to me because Daddy Russ got it for me two years ago. It’s so beautiful, don’t you think? Luke is constantly leaving a trail of ornaments throughout the house. We had to move all the glass ones to the top of the tree. This is our front entry way where you will always be greeted with JOY! I added this tree in our front office this past year. It’s actually my old tree from college. I wanted something very different from our “formal” tree so I decided to do a more natural and rustic tree in the front. It has pine cones hanging, birds nest, cardinals and snow sprinkled over it. The cardinals are actually very symbolic in Daddy Russ’ family as they represent his grandfather who passed away. I now call it our “Red Bird Tree.” A pretty little cardinal nestled in the tree. If it was up to me, I’d have a Christmas tree in EVERY room! Pretty table decor in our dining room. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season and are making many memories with their families! This is my sTORI being written as you read. – Love, Mommy Tori 5 Responses Ellen 12/10/2012 I love bird tree ornaments. I scour for them every year in boutique stores.
