More Christmas cheer

We did the tree yesterday but today I finished up the rest of the decorating.

This tiny little tree came from my family.  I remember making it with my mom when I was a little kid.  We got tiny little ornaments and presents to decorate it with and even found a little star for the top.  It's been out in my house just about every year since.

My mom got me this handmade nativity scene in Mexico.

The mantel is lined with stockings.  Even the dogs have one to share.  The first year I hung it up my dog saw me put toys inside one evening and each night afterwards she sat and starred up at it.  The anticipation was almost too much to handle!

The mantel in the dining room has a natural garland across it.  The little farm scene we got for our wedding in intermixed with the greenery.

Josh made this wreath last year from pieces of a birch tree we cut on our property up in Michigan.

Even the dinner bell outside the door got some bling for Christmas!

Our two reindeer took turns wearing their antlers.

Even the chickens got some holiday cheer!  We hung this wreath up high on the coop.  I also plan to make them some garlands of cranberries and popcorn to enjoy in the coming weeks.  Even chickens love Christmas.


  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    1. Thanks! I hope you all have a nice holiday out in New Richmond as well. How is your greenhouse plan coming along?
