Here is the tree. She made a ton of these music paper ornaments and a tree topper seen here. She also added the paper Christmas words and the tree only contains angel ornaments and a few music instrument ones that go along with the angels.
This is also in the living room and contains all of my mom's handmade angels from over the years... she is pretty crafty.
She made my sister's fiance a stocking this year to match the rest of ours.. that is the fullest the mantle has ever been.
Here is her clay pot tree with a few other decorations and a table with snowmen in the foyer area.
Fabric trees similar to what she saw here and her decorated balance.
The table setting for our Christmas meal.
We opened our presents on the night of the 27th. I must have been really good this year because I got many wonderful gifts. The main things were a DSLR from Eric that I had been eyeing.
And I also received a sewing machine from my parents for a combination Christmas/Birthday gift and we contributed to it as well. I had picked it out back in Sept and wanted it to be a sewing machine that I have for a very very long time. I brought it to my parents so my mom and I could experiment with making something on it. I CANNOT wait to do a post on what we made :)
Here are my sister and I and significant others with our godmother, Peggy. Peggy has a picture of us with my parents on her camera or I would have added that too... updated: added 2nd picture of the fam (could see this as a great Christmas card pic for my mom to use next year!)
Hubby and I :)
