Christmastime on Crestwood

Well, we started hauling out the Christmas stuff and thought we would post some pictures for the family and whomever else wants to see them.

Our first challenge was the Christmas tree. This year, in a new house, we had to figure out how to have our Christmas tree in a way that we could enjoy it but Orbit can not. After some finagling involving an extra dining room chair, some shoeboxes and an old comforter covered up with a tree skirt, we came up with what you see below. So what do you think, is this a kitty proof Christmas tree? (we're putting the ornaments up this weekend)

We actually get to hang our stockings on a mantel! Here they are with the nativity set modeled after my mom's...

I found this little nativity set at Hobby Lobby over the weekend and love the fact that the commercial is, in a sense, bowing down to the true meaning of Christmas.

So that's the start of our home at Christmas time!!

Orbit Loves Christmas too!
