Christmas Tour of Homes

Christmas Tour of Homes with The Nester

It's been FOREVER since I blogged, but I just had to take part in the Christmas Tour of Homes again this year. I majorly simplified our Christmas decorations for 2009 because a) our 9 month old is keeping me BUSY and I don't have a ton of time to decorate and b) I don't want to spend the season stressed out and frazzled because I've spent all day every day keeping the little one away from the decorations. I've pretty much limited the decorating to our mantel and the piano.

We just put up our little 3-foot tree and hung only non-breakable ornaments on it.

This piece is new this year and is already a favorite. I love the magic of Santa Claus but want to be sure Charla knows what Christmas is really about.

Charla's stocking - I can't believe I found a Classic Pooh stocking for her (Tar-jay)!! It's perfect since her nursery theme is Classic Pooh.

Another awesome Classic Pooh item - this one will be treasured for years!

This Advent calendar is so sweet. We've really enjoyed this opening each day's window and reading a piece of the Christmas story to Charla.

New this year and one of my favorite decorations - a basket of Christmas books to read to Charla.

Ornaments in a glass hurricane on our kitchen table

And by far, this is my very favorite and most special Christmas decoration this year...

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

I stumbled upon your blog today through Walk with me by Faith and had to check you out since we share the same PERFECT name, Ha! AND THEN to see that we share two other loves, Southern Living at HOME and Classic Pooh, I was thrilled. You should stop by my blog and see my special collection of Classic Pooh ornaments that I have collected for 20+ years to hopefully put on my childs tree (I got to do that for the frist time 4 years ago). Hope you come visit.

Merry Christmas
Daily laying it at the Master's feet!
