I love this time of year!

One of my favorite things to do is to decorate my house for Christmas!  I absolutely love it!  I found a few things I wanted to make from Pinterest, so my sister, Tiffani, and I decided to have a craft day this past Sunday and make a few things.  Jodi and I both wanted to make this...

 But when we went shopping the other day for supplies..this was going to be so expensive! Who knew little red berries would cost so much.  I mean if you only need like 10 or so its cheap...but I didn't want to spend $50 on berries! So we had to go to plan B.  Jodi and I both got letters to make a door hanger and she made redneck wine glasses also.  Here are some pictures from craft day! :)

I loved making these so much...even Wes helped a bit.  He took charge of taking the labels off the wine glasses for me :)

OK..more Christmas stuff.  I had to share my decorations with you guys too.  Sunday (before craft day) Wes and I went to the farm, took our 4 wheelers and went on a hunt for the perfect Christmas tree.  It was actually a lot of fun and a neat tradition!  We got it narrowed down between 2 trees and I finally decided on the perfect one.  We got it home and I put the lights on (like 5 or 6 strands) and my bows and took a break.  Later that night, I spent a couple hours putting my ornaments on.  I was so please with it! I couldn't stop looking at it.  Around 10pm Wes and I decided to go to sleep.  Well, we heard a HUGE crash...we both thought it sounded like someone breaking a window to break in the house.  Wes jumped up, grabbed his shot gun (yes he keeps it under his side of the bed..so don't break in, ok? :) and went to investigate.  Well, it was our tree!! It fell on my coffee table which is what the awful sound was.  I was so sad.  Nothing broke but about 90% of the ornaments were thrown across the room.  All we did was pick the tree up and I left everything as is until I got off work last night.  Anyways..I just had to share that story.  The pictures below are of the tree after I decorated it the second time! (It will not fall again...Wes nailed the stand to the floor haha)

Ok...here are pictures of our decorations!

That is it!  Hope you liked the Christmas Tour of my house! :)  I better get back to work...hope everyone has a great day!
