fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

We've decked our halls! Well, to be more accurate, we've decked the mantle, our tree, and a wall with boughs of Michael's merchandise, fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.



I call this my dollar tree garland.


It's pre-lit from Target and cost $10. Everything on it was less than a dollar.


I bought this from the boy scouts back in November, and it's still alive! If that's not a Christmas miracle, I don't know what is!


My mom and I made this last year. And by made, I mean she put the stuff on the wreath, and I determined whether or not to keep it that way. :)


One of my beautiful nativity sets.


My nativities are my favorite decorations.


And while we're on the subject of favorites, this is Daniel's. The Chiefs might not have a prominent place in the standings, but they forever will on our tree and in our hearts.


This is Baby's favorite Christmas item. Singing + dancing + barking + vibrating = Baby Girl bliss.
