This is our advent calendar that sits in the entry way. It is an old Pepsi crate. I have wrapped little ornaments in each space and every morning the children unwrap one. Of course there are only 24 spaces so we count down to Christmas Eve. My mom did this when we were little and now I have carried on the tradition with my children!
This is the Sugar Plum Tree in the family room. I love that it is white and pink and happy!
This is a little table in the hallway. I love the fake rosemary tree with popcorn balls hanging from it.
This is my antique-y tree I have in the corner of the dining room. It has white lace and pom pom trim and other "old" ornaments. It's all white & silver. I love it!
I made these vintage cat ornaments last year using THIS techinique.
The turquoise angel cat is my favorite ornament on this tree!

If you don't know about the Elf, you can go to the official Elf on the Shelf website HERE. You can't touch your elf because he is magical. Everynight he flies to Santa using his magic and reports on what he's seen all day. In the morning the children have to find the Elf as he is always some where new and mischivious.
This morning Richie was found hanging in the Christmas tree holding an empty tube of toilet paper. The Christmas tree was covered in TP. Sally thought this was hilarious!! Everyday I hope to post the antics of our silly Elf!!
What a wonderful Thanksgiving we had yesterday. My parents, Nana, Brother, and Sister & her family all joined us. It was a feast for sure!
We rotisseried a turkey AND roasted a turkey!
We set the table for 15!!!
