Deck the Halls...

It's been over a week since my last post as we've been very busy with some personal family matters. To keep my mind off things I've been listening to Pandora's Peaceful Holidays station. This really got me itching to decorate for Christmas.

Here's what I've been up to:

For my kitchen window, I took an old birch tree stick, some velvet ribbon and some ornaments and made a Christmas-y window treatment.

Until we get that faux fireplace figured out, I've decided to just pretend that this area already has a mantel. 

While we are on the subject of Christmas, do your kids believe in Santa? At what age did they stop believing/you told them the truth? How did you break the news?
