La Casa

I love my little house.  It is delightful.  I love the white trim, my little office, my big windows, my cold hard wood floors which are perfect with slippers, the fact that there is color every where (even though I long for white in my living room), it's dreamy.  I am not sure what will become of our living situation once we say, "I do" but I know inevitably, my house will have other occupants and it will be nostalgic to drive by with our kids one day and tell them, "That's where Daddy proposed to Mommy."

Because of this fact, I cherish all the times right now when the house is neatly cleaned and a fire is going.  Here are a few pictures of the house all dolled up for Christmas time. 

While not overly Christmasy, my bedroom is finally complete so I had to share (minus knobs for my dresser).

A cute little ornament my parents got me for my Thanksgiving Eve gift.

These salad plates are so cute!  Also part of my Thanksgiving Eve gift, there are six which have the process of building a snowman, each one different.

My mentor from my first year of teaching gave this to me.  It is filled with notes from my first class and all of their pictures.  I read them every year, I loved those kiddos.

Cute little mini city from MBTweens, love it.
An inexpensive way to display all the Christmas cards we receive (this pic was taken a few weeks back in case you are wondering where your card is).

My dad has this set, I love it so he found one similar for me.

I had a difficult time deciding what to do with my mantel this year, so it isn't something I love per say.  I love all the pieces, just wanting something more cohesive.  The little manger scene was an engagement gift from Chris' parents.  Baby Jesus is missing, Chris' mom said we will get Him on our first married Christmas (kind of an ongoing joke from our first date).

A close up of the wreath I made for the mantel.

A larger version of our mini nativity scene.  My dad got me this one a few years ago.  It is made out of wood from Jerusalem.  I think it is beautimous.

And who could forget Jasper?  Here he is, enjoying his Christmas gifts.
