It's Wednesday once again, so it's time to link up with Jamie for What I'm Loving Wednesday!
To start off I have to say- I'm loving the Holiday Season!!! This week has been filled with holiday preparation. I have not forgotten about Thanksgiving either, but I'm having a hard time with it this year, not because I don't have a lot to be thankful for, but merely because it's supposed to be a time to be spent with family and unfortunately this year, my husband is gone and my little man just doesn't understand it. But Christmas, Christmas he knows. He doesn't really understand the gifts, or the religious meanings behind it or anything like that, but we have watched Polar Express, his favorite movie, every day nearly for the last year! Among other favorite movies are the Santa Clause movies, Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas, etc... Oh yes, he knows Christmas and he gets so excited about all the festivities and decorations everywhere.
And on that note I have to say, we have already started decorating and I'm loving my Christmas decor!!! Some of my favorite things are:
My new Willow Tree Plaque- 'Holy Family'. I LOVE Willow Tree figurines, so simple and gorgeous. I went to the store with the specific goal of finding a nativity scene. I knew I wanted the full Willow Tree set, but just couldn't bring myself to spend the money on it, nor did I have room for it, so when I saw this, I knew it was just perfect. I have added a poinsettia to this arrangement since the picture was taken as well.
My little man's playroom Christmas tree- decorated in Superheroes. That's another thing I love- Superman! My husband on the other hand is a Batman fan (grr) and Shaun likes Spiderman. We're a family of dorks, but it suits us well. I made a lot of the ornaments for this, my favorite being the little comic books, as well as some that say 'wow', 'bang', etc comic book style. The superheroes other than Superman are all happy meal type toys made into ornaments. I am so happy with how it all turned out!
And finally, the big Christmas tree. After much debate, I finally decided to just go with a classic green and red with some silver thrown in. And lots of glitter and shine. Lots and lots of glitter. Seriously, looks like my house was broken into by vampires. (Yes, I just went there, I'm sorry I couldn't help myself- my apologies to the Twilight fans;)) But seriously, I love how it turned out! Now we just need presents to fill the bottom!!
So that's what I'm loving this Wednesday! I hope everyone else is enjoying their holiday planning as well!
