It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Ron and I have had such a great time decorating for Christmas this year.  It's amazing how your child can make the holiday season SO MUCH MORE FUN!  Although she hasn't really got a clue of what it's all about, who Santa is or why Christmas music has been playing in the house, in the car and on Daddy's alarm clock, it's still such a joy because now it's all about her.  She does seem to love her tree and all of the new decor.

Our entry table displays the nativity scene.  (Please ignore the fact that the "grass" is on top of the "snow".)

Kaitlyn loves the lights!

Our stockings are hung by the chimney with care.
Living room decorations.

We bought an artificial tree online this year.  After going to cut down our tree two years ago and not knowing what kind (if any) we'll be able to get at our next post, we decided it would be worth the investment.  It was difficult shopping for a tree online, but we decided on this 7.5 footer.  Just out of the box: (I think Kaitlyn is wondering what this big tree is doing inside the house.)

Not the best picture, but here is the tree all lit up.

Our ornaments over the years:

2006: Ron's co-worker made this one out of computer circuit board when we were dating.

2007: Our first Christmas as husband and wife. (Please excuse the fingerprints.)

2008:  The last Christmas of "just us".

2009: It's all about Kaitlyn!  We are still waiting for her "Baby's 1st Christmas" ornament to arrive, but we bout this first one a couple of months ago.

And Nana G sent this one.

The table display on our coffee table (which has since been moved thanks to Kaitlyn's curiousity and recent ability to reach the bowl.)

And the display on the dining room table.

It looks great! We did the SAME thing with the ornaments in a bowl on the table (fortunately for us we don't have a curious baby yet)! I hadn't even seen this yet...great minds! -Kim
