Oh Christmas Tree!

I finally took pictures of the tree and the other little tree that I got from my mom that I threw some lights on, and little light up presents under.. and added a bow that i am not too sure about.
I added the tree topper to the big tree tonight, and ornaments, and i am not done with the tree quite yet, I think i might want to add garland.. or more balls.. or something.. i dont know.. its just lacking to me.. but i wanted to get some pictures!
I had to take them with my phone so sorry about the crappy phone quality pictures, but I wont have my new camera until christmas eve morning so this will have to do!

and now onto some pictures... the big tree and the little tree in the corner! I will post more decorating pictures as I get them taken! :)

A little bit of guest bathroom decorating...

and again... all Goodwill finds from goodwill earlier in the year (including the corner holder thing and the angel)

Moose ornament .. I couldn't help myself, I HAD to buy it he was just too cute, plus he matches my window clings! :)

buffet before...

I was going to buy a wreath, but I figured id try making one first... I wanted to do it all green with the red bow and those red curly things i have in there, but I didn't have enough so I had to compromise and put on the red garland.. I think it looks ok!

Little table by the door (excuse the crow.. I figured he could hang out in his cage all year LOL)

Entry table..

some closer pictures of the snowmen...

buffet after.. I added the bead garland to the tray and some christmas balls laying around..
I have 4 silver trays that arent in use so I figured I would use one of them and put my willow tree figurines on it.

I replaced the silver balls (which are now scattered on the buffet) with silver and red ones.. the peppermint candles were from walmart last year after christmas.

Santa birdhouse from Goodwill earlier this year.
My manger that i've had since i was a little girl, and who knows how long before that. I really want a willow tree nativity set to display elsewhere but this one will ALWAYS go under the tree.

our DVD/video game shelves decorated for the holidays.

Target balls in my one jar, wood snowman from goodwill earlier this year and the grinch figurine is from a store in a near-by shopping mall that I got last year. I wanted to keep it in its package but I figure itll never be worth money, I might as well get it out and use it!

and finally, some pictures of just a few (of TONS) ornaments on our tree, they are personalized ones and ones we've had for awhile.
This one I got a few years ago when I worked at Bon-Ton, it was on sale, plus I had my discount, I think I got it for $2 or something around there, and it was close to $15 original.
Hubby's ornament from 1995
Mine from when i was little.. I have a couple others that I made in school or got throughout my childhood.
My hubby's grandmas ornament, he has been talking about getting one of them from her because its the only ornament that sticks out in his mind and the one he thinks of immediatly when he thinks of ornaments, so he went over and got one from her. When the air or heat blows up(or down) into it, that little fan swirls around. He was so excited to get it and put it on the tree. Just like a kid.
Hubby's mom got me this last year, it's our kitty LucyFurr's Santa picture LOL
