it's beginning to look a lot like...

Christmas!!

~not sure why i have so much Christmas spirit this year, but i've been enjoying getting out the decorations a bit early. Maybe it's simply because I did not decorate AT ALL last year, no tree, nothing. It's like Christmas for me just opening my storage containers and seeing everything in there...I always forget what I have and I have WAY TOO many Christmas decorations. Four FULL storage boxes & that doesn't count the ornaments I have...eeks!!

So anyway, I'm not the best decorator & I'm limited with what I can do & still keep the house childproof, but I thought I'd take a few pictures to share with you. Enjoy the holiday tour!!

I just added a few items to my this table. I have to put NON-breakable items here since E can reach everything on it now.

This is the top of the entertainment center. Clearly I have an abundance of plush Christmas decorations.
And here's the mantle (so far). Somewhere I have 2 other stockings which I'll hang up as soon as I find them. This is the first year for the reindeer as I purchased them TWO years ago at 50% from Pier One!!
Lastly, here is a shot of the entire (tiny) living room. Don't mind my pathetic window treatment...it's supposed to hang there draped as in two scallop shapes, however a certain pair of hands OFTEN pulls on it and i'm tired of fixing it everyday.

Dang girl! You've seriously got the Christmas spirit!

I need to see if I can catch it. I've been feeling rather bah-humbugish here lately.

I don't know why I am so festive feeling really. I have plenty of reasons NOT to be!!! Hopefully the cheer sticks around til Christmas!

I really like those reindeer you got... at such a good price! I've really been liking all the stuff @ Pier 1 lately; but must wait for sales to purchase almost anything there.

Nice job decorating!
