Holiday Mantel

 Here is our holiday mantel for this year: It's a little weird decorating for Christmas when it isn't freezing out, so I feel like we are having a little bit of difficulty getting into the holiday mood but finishing the mantel has helped. Also putting the outside lights up is going to be much nicer since it isn't freezing/snowy so hopefully that will motivate us to finish decorating this week.

These are our dogs stockings. The one on the left is Madeline's and the one on the right is Zoe's. They fit their personalities really well. We love Madeline because she is so good and as it say's on Zoe's stocking "I don't need to be good. I'm cute" which is basically her life motto.

 I really wanted to get a silver reindeer this year and I found one at Hobby Lobby that I loved but I did not the love the $60 price tag. I picked up this smaller version in a Target sale for $7 which I was very excited about.

This is my candy cane tree. We haven't had time to get our actual tree yet so it is our main one right now.

 Our little window is holding onto our sleigh and presents

 And Santa is working hard to make all the toys

We aren't expecting any snow this year so I made some snowflakes so that we can enjoy the snow without having to shovel it!
