dressing up {the house}

My Christmas decorating is in full swing. Sparkle & shine and red & green... jewelry and accessories for the house! As soon as I get it all together I plan on posting lots of pics... but here are a couple for now...

We had our annual ornament shopping trip last night where the children each get to pick an ornament. It's amazing how they remember year to year each special one they've chosen. (Mom may get to choose more than one, but, hey, I'm The Mom.)

My 8 year old spotted this one and I love it!

We are taking the children to The Nutcracker today - with our three now being 8, 6, and 4, I think this year the performance may hold even my youngest's attention. I've always loved The Nutcracker. Growing up I took ballet lessons at the Atlanta School of Ballet so was able to be one of the little dancers up on stage for the Atlanta Ballet's performances at The Fox. Seriously big excitement for a little girl!

I hope everyone is enjoying the start of the season.
