Decorations and Such---

We worked on trees, trains, and decorations this weekend. It was a rewarding process this weekend and it felt so cozy inside once the tree was up and lit in the den. The lighting for my photos seems a bit off, but here are the decorations:

One of the advent activities was to make snowflakes. This is such a fun and addictive project. We went a little snowflake crazy:

Our mantel with a football game going on overhead!
This is a real tree from a North Carolina tree farm. John has a couple of customers who are tree farmers and one of them gave him this tree for the girls. So sweet. And the paper chain was created by me and the girls with scrapbook paper.
