Christmas Decorations & Gifts 2011

I am so far behind but, Hey better late than never!  
This is our Christmas Tree.  
It is the same year after year.  

I Love It!  

We own an older home and the decorations simply fit the home.  I don't load it up with lights or ornaments.  I have some stockings, red pajamas/long johns, mittens, and candy canes.   

Oh, and if you look close there is a tiny baby carriage complete with "2011" for our Babies 1st Christmas.

This shelf is also a repeat.  
There isn't a fireplace or a mantle but the shelf & pegs fulfill the responsibility. 

I am a Boyd's Bear collector and this is where Santa & The Mrs. are displayed this year along with the small wooden sleighs, the stockings, and the signature Hallmark Countdown Ornament for the oldest little one.
(The hubby & I have given her a new ornament each year so that when she has her own tree she'll have ornaments from her childhood.  And should I mention, that was his idea?  Good job dear!) 

This is a quick gift that we gave this year.  I have seen tons of photos on Pinterest, so I can and won't take credit for the idea myself.  

They were simple, inexpensive, and ever so cute!  

I bought some hand soap on clearance, spray painted them, added the vinyl and ribbon, and done.  

Easy, Easy!!!
Who doesn't like easy this time of year?!?
