we've been waiting for mr.a to get home before putting up our christmas tree; but i couldn't wait any longer to put a few decorations up around the house. sigh...i just love christmas decorations! i don't even have very much, but what i do have makes me verrrrry happy!

i love seeing the different styles of nativity set that people choose. they're all so different and beautiful. each year when i pull ours out i fall in love with it all over again and every year i think, "why don't i leave this out all year long?"

their clothing is carved to look quilted, and each character's "quilt" tells a part of the story.

in our dining room, i hung my favorite ornaments from our chandelier...

my sister bought these for me from anthropologie a few years ago, i just love them.
i wish i had a whole tree-ful of them!

i hope to get our tree decorated on friday night (we pick up mr.a at the airport on friday afternoon!), so i'll be sure to post pictures.
oh man, it seems like a dream that my husband will finally be with us again. a dream.
