Christmas 2009 has come and gone

Ok, so we fell off of the blogger wagon. Sickness in December totally put a damper on my Christmas spirit. I did manage to send out a few cards and the tree finally did get put up and then I broke the top off of it. It was just one of those years. But the kids enjoyed the season, that's all that matters in my book.

Now I am just relaxing with the kids watching cartoons and playing games in front of the tree. I typically wait till the New Year to take down my tree and decorations, but it is just cluttering my house and the broken top is just bugging me. But I am just to lazy to remove myself from the couch to clean anything up yet. I must be in a food coma.

I did decorate my dining room and porch before the sickness over took my house. So I will share my pictures. Enjoy the rest of the holiday season.

Stocking re-vamp

I bought these plain stockings a few years ago and always thought they looked like they were missing something. I saw in a magazine were they had button initials on the stockings and loved that idea. So last night I started on mine.

I hot glued the buttons in place, sewing would probably have been a better option, especially if you want to change them later on. But, I was looking for instant results. As it was, it still took me some time to do one and I have 3 more to go.

I love the way that it added a personalized touch, and I think it would on any stocking you have. I will post a picture once I get the others finished.

We are adding this to Kimbas DIY party, stop by and check out all the other great ideas.

Christmas decorating take 2

Here are some random projects I have been working on in my house. Love that burlap webbing stuff from Walmart. I used it outside as well, on my door wreath and basket on my screen door.

Below, is a little tree I put in my living room. Unfortunately, we don't have a lot of room for our big tree in there, that always goes in the dinning room. This year I wanted one is the living room as well.

I used homemade stuff on this tree, birds cut out of music, old spindles and some clock faces I found somewhere online. Love my old bucket I got at an estate sale this summer, I was looking for a way to use it in the house!

Off to work on the big tree, we finally got it today.

Christmas decorating

All over blog land everyone seems to have put up their Christmas decorations already, do some of you sleep. Yeeek, I better get going. We got about an inch of snow last night, so I am glad I got up my outside decorations earlier this week when it was 50 degrees out. I'll share some pics so I too look like I am doing something instead sitting on my butt.

Oh yes, my 3 year old son also has taken to helping decorate.
