A Christmas Stroll...

...around our house.

These are some of my favorite Christmas decorations this year:

This Fontanini Nativity set was a wedding gift, and we've added a few pieces.

Aaahhh, my beautiful Willowtree Nativity. I collect the Willowtree figurines, and wanted this Nativity so badly. My MiL gave me the starter set, and then when Fr. Dave left for Rome he gave his to us so we could display it since he couldn't...I don't think he's ever gonna get it back ;-)

My Celtic Advent wreath...gotta celebrate that Irish heritage all year long!

I LOVE candles, and this one smells and looks so pretty. My friend Katie gave this to me a couple of weeks ago, and I think I have burned it every day since!

I bought this at Marshalls last year. It's not my normal style, but it just spoke to me. It makes me feel peaceful...

Kathy, a fellow teacher with Phil, gave him this gift yesterday, and he was so happy to get it. He loves this depiction of Santa kneeling down to Christ; even Santa knows the true meaning of Christmas!

This is my favorite ornament this year, it's moose-tastic! (sorry, lame)

And now to my Black Friday super bargain. This "fake" tree was half-off, and it's our first year without a real tree. But it looks nice, it came with the lights on it, and it doesn't shed...what more could you ask for?

...well, I guess I could ask that it smelled like a real tree, but that's why I have this little guy!


  1. I love the Willowtree figures too! AND my Mom just gave me the nativity. I love it! Oh and I love your fake tree, I am thinking we will be copying you next year. I will need to invest in a bottle of tree smell too :o) Merry Christmas!!

  2. Yankee candles are the best.

    We bought my mom the willow tree angel nativity and it's up all year round at there house. I wish I had one.

    Love the pictures of your favorites, I did that last year and should do that this year. It's fun.
