(I'm always looking for excuses to get my two fellas under that mistletoe!)
We have lots of fun little goodies in the den and kitchen. Here are a few of my favorites.
This turquoise bowl was a wedding gift, and I love using it to hold ornaments.An angel stands watch over it.
I know the Little People Nativity set is for kids, but we're having fun with it this year. Bear can play with it next year. :) We don't eat many cookies, so our Santa cookie jar fills his bag with pretty ornaments instead.
One of my favorite corners of our kitchen holds this cheese plate with our last-name initial. I like it so much I might just leave it up all year! Our sweet Bear's room has his very own Nativity!
Full disclosure time: Our living room is not quite as neat and put-together as it might appear in the other photos. I love a good macro shot! If you were to come over most days, this is what you would see. Life with a boy is the messiest and most fun thing in the world!
But forget the mess and just let our Elf on a Shelf wish you a very Merry Christmas!

(Aren't my placemats cute? I practically stole them from Kohl's. I got four of them for $2.00!)
It's not too late to do this if you want to. Just find a journal and start writing. Your decorations haven't been up too long, so snap a few pictures of them and write about the experience. Did one of your kids break a pretty glass ornament? Write about it! Have you tucked into the eggnog already? Journal it! is there an awfully gaudy house in your neighborhood? Sneak out at night and take its picture! If you're not a scrapbooker, who cares? Just have fun.
Be present this Christmas. Remember it all.
