Getting into the Christmas Spirit!

Lately, I have really been trying to get into the holiday spirit...because I really haven't felt like I've had time to breathe yet this month. We've been having to work overtime at work, which means by the time I get home from work I am too tired to do any Christmas shopping. So, guess when I started my Christmas shopping?! Sunday. Haha. I'll get there eventually right? Here are a few things we have acquired for ourselves while shopping for other people. (yeah yeah...you know you do it too!)

We went to Crackerbarrel to see if we could find any dirty Santa gifts and ended up with this little guy...

Yep. It's a guinea pig ornament. Ian has two guinea pigs in his classroom and this one looks just like one of them, so he couldn't resist. We also got a couple of holiday scented Woodwick candle...which are amazing because they crackle like a fireplace. :)

My mom picked up a few things for me as well...like this little sign that says "meet me under the mistletoe." I am going to try and find some mistletoe to hang underneath it in a doorway. :)

I emptied the halloween candy out of my orange fruit bowl (haha) and filled it to the brim with candy canes!

And...I sat out these adorable salt and pepper shakers that I was given by my friend Courtney a couple weeks ago.

My mom also picked up this little whimsical tree, which lights up when you press a button. This is probably my favorite Christmas decoration so far!

Ooh but I can't forget about my turquoise light-up snowman!

Or my super cute Santa Claus cookie jar. :)

What are your favorite Christmas decorations in your home?

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Love your funky little tree! :) So many cute things you have to decorate your home. My favorite Christmas decor here at home is....ALL OF IT! :) I have so many ornaments that have been in the family for years and they bring back so many memories.
Hope you have a very merry Christmas and a fantastic 2011! :)

Your decorations are too cute...my favorite(s) are my collection of UGA ornaments and my Mr. and Mrs. Claus all decked out in their Georgia gear. My mom got them all for me and each year gets me the collectible ornament.
Hope you guys have a FABULOUS Christmas...see you Sunday :)
