~Our home all "wrapped up" for Christmas~

~The outside of our home. It turned out a little blurry.~
~And now we'll go inside.
~I bought these fun sticks; some in their natural color, and some painted red and green to stick in my "newspaper" basket by our front door.~
~First we'll pass under the mistle toe as we go into the kitchen. =)~
~We got this little 9" tree at a dollar store. I added the ribbon and the lights and put it in my red themed "apple" kitchen.~
~Sarah enjoying the Christmas lights in the living room. I am happy to have this cute "Feliz Navidad" pillow that's on my couch. My dear Moma got it for me last Christmas.~

~The window above the couch.~
~Our 5' Christmas tree in the living room...a fun one full of color.~
~Our Christmas tree all lit up.~
~The center piece in the middle of our table.~
~The China cabinet with our Christmas dishes on it.~
~Our Sunday night snack last Sunday on a fun Christmasy table.~
~Kimberly and Sarah's little tree (their room isn't big enough for a bigger tree.)~
~Noah and Elijah's Christmas tree~~Kimberly and Sarah's stockings.~

~Noah and Elijah's stockings.~
~Our bedroom all decorated for Christmas. I love this nice "Merry Christmas" pillow that my sweet sister Laura gave me last year.~

~Last night I made this common Colombian Christmas food. It's called "Natilla" and is like a flan or pudding.~
~Last night was the first night that the kids slept beside the tree. They fell asleep with the cozy lights of the tree and Christmas music playing.~
Thanks for dropping by to see us.

Everything looks so pretty and festive! I hate it that we haven't had a chance to get our decorations up yet. Time goes by so fast, we hardly have time to enjoy it if we wait too late!

Thanks for sharing your home with us! :)

The children sleeping around the Christmas tree is so sweet to my heart. I love seeing them in their familiar positions of sleep. If I had had a mother like you are to your children, I would have thought that I was living a Fairy Tale. I WISH I had the gumption to decorate my house for Christmas as much as you have decorated yours! Maybe I'll get a bit done, which even that would make me HAPPY. Love you all bunches and bunches!

I really like your table centerpiece! I have something similar and it's one of my favorite decorations.
