Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a day for eating...and being excited for Christmas!! I spent some time this week decorating our apartment for Christmas. Since we can't have a tree this year and we won't even be at our apt during December, I decided I needed to have plenty of time to enjoy the holidays in my house

Yes those stockings I made by myself.

My beautiful and warm fire:) With a gorgeous cranberry wreath

No decorations are complete without a nativity
And I couldn't let these Anthro inspired birds pass up!!

My bird from Walmart: $2.00

Anthro's Bird: $12.00

Ok so Anthro's picture makes it look way better, but that Walmart bird is all sparkly and beautiful and at $2.00 a bird I could afford to buy 2:)
