Christmas Decorations

 I feel a little silly posting about my Christmas decor when some people don't even have enough to buy presents for themselves but I will consider myself a blessed person and relish in all of the blessings God has given me.  Also, I wanted to link up before Christmas but I never got a chance so right before I took down my decorations yesterday I snapped some pictures. One more thing, I am documenting this because I know Annabelle will thoroughly enjoy it one day. Just wanted to get that out there. :)
 Our matchy matchy tree. :)
 The pretty part...
 and the part that Annabelle decorated for me. :)
 I put up a few frames, one from before we moved to Marysville with some dear friends and the other one from a few years ago of our family.
 We always put up a few little hogs lights.

 ..and a tiny tree in the bathroom that is getting old and a little lopsided.

 I loved decorating my little "show off" board with pictures of our family,our old Christmas cards, and our picture of Santa and the girls.
 This year I decided to put up Adam and my old tree, the first tree we ever had. I wanted a tree to put all of the ornaments the girls have made. It was so so fun to have this tree up this year and we will most definitely be doing this again next year!
 I am such a sentimental person. I got ornaments on all of the fun trips we took this year. :)

 And I love some of the "old" ornaments we have as well.

 And the ornaments Annabelle made at school.
 The Advent calender was the new thing we got this year. I loved these when I was little, moving the little snowflake from space to space.
 And my dining room, my favorite room in the house. :)
 The new ornaments the girls got for Christmas

And Annabelle got this special ornament in her stocking because she is on a ballet streak!

Today is Thankful Tuesday and I cannot help but think about all of the things I am thankful to God for this year. I will write more about that later on my end of the year post! Next, I wanna write all about our Christmas Eve and Christmas.

But, before I go, these were my verses for this morning:

PSALM 103:1-5
  1 Let all that I am praise the Lord;
      with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
 2 Let all that I am praise the Lord;
      may I never forget the good things he does for me.
 3 He forgives all my sins
      and heals all my diseases.
 4 He redeems me from death
      and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
 5 He fills my life with good things.
