Christmas Decorations

I've so enjoyed seeing your holiday decorations in blogland so I decided to do my own holiday home tour. My DH took the photos for me. He sweetly said the problems I was having with my DSLR camera were not due to my abilities. It was a hand me down from him and he said he always had problems with it too.

Click to enlarge. Enjoy!

It's a fake tree. My son is allergic to the real thing.

This ornament came from my grandmother. 

I remember this ornament on the tree when I was a kid.
This one too-

My mom gave me this one a few years ago.

Love that these old ceramic trees are making a comeback. 

Happy Christmas!
