We "Decked the Halls"

After envying many bloggers homes decorated for Christmas I have finally decided to share mine :) I've already shown glimpses of our apartment in it's Christmas spirit, but I want to show the whole shebang together. I love that I can document this so that next year I can see how I had it and make changes/add new things. Do you have any special traditions for decorating your home/tree? Any sentimental ornaments? I love that its our first married Christmas and we get to start new traditions and memories! So here we go...

First up is the kitchen:

Love my penguin from Pier One! Buy it here
This worked out perfectly for my teal dishes!
Can you see me??

Next is the tree!

attempting to be artsy...haha

The topper!
 EEEEKKK!! Its sooo pretty :)

And for the rest of the living room:

transitioning from fall to winter!
my beautiful velvet Target tree!
 For the doors:
Happy Holidays sign-get a similar one here

My beautiful wreath that Olivia made me!

Still missing pictures of a few things such as the stockings and I want to do a pretty christmas tablescape (not sure if that will happen??)

Days 12 & 13 of Photo Challenge:

Day 12:
YAY! We finally started watching Season 6 last which means new episodes!!!
Day 13:
One of my favorite decorations! It's actually an ornament but I like to hang it on the door :)
