Christmas Decorations

I have wanted to add some photos of our place for a while now and I am finally around to it. I love the way it looks in person but I don't think it comes across as warm when I take photos. Here are some I took though before we put up our tree.
I just picked up some new decorations. I was getting so tired of the ones we bought a few years ago. I will pull them back out in a few years though since I still like them!
More candles!

I love this new bird cage. I figured my hubby wouldn't really be the biggest fan but he has yet to complain about them. He had actually been playing with it quite a bit...
He figured our drinking bird belonged in it.
Wow doesn't that seem like the weirdest thing to own? My brother in law brought it over one evening and seriously all the little kids that come over love to play with it.
He then decided our Christmas bulbs belong in it! Now I will have to go and pick up some new ones since they belonged in some other glass canisters we have. I love decorating with them!!
This is my favorite ornament! It may not look like a lot but it was my mother's from when she was a child. I always loved putting it up every year. My husband decided it was worth taking a photo of.

I've been decorating with ornaments today and I'm in love! Its so festive and simple simple. I love the way they look in the birdcage! I could never have that at my house, as it is a certain little 2 year old is running off with most of the ornaments from the bowl. Oh well.
