Inside Christmas Decorations

I hesitate to post pictures of my Christmas Decorations since I seem to have no real "rhyme or reason" to what I do but here ya go anyway. Just a few pictures of the inside and a little explanation. The outside will get finished tonight so I will try to post those tomorrow!
This is my built in shelves that I have in the living room! I am picky about this village and don't have all I want yet but will add to it when "whatever" strikes me. I added some little yellow ribbons to the garland and I am sure you can figure out why!

This is the church of my village that I absolutely adore and wish I could actually find one just like it somewhere to have some family pictures taken there!

This is the dream house that Dave and I have - specifically because of the porch. When I saw this house, I knew I just had to have it as part of my village.

So if you know much about me, you will know that I am a teddy bear freak and Christmas is no exception. This is my teddy bear Nativity Set that I dearly love and I have not seen another one like it anywhere (although I haven't looked much)!!

This is a small step ladder that usually just holds Bibles but I put it to use holding some of my bears that are specifically for Christmas.

This is my tree and all the rest. Like I said, I am not the worlds greatest decorator but I must admit that I LOVE my tree this year.

A friend of mine, Mary, stopped by my house late one evening to give our family an early Christmas present. She had this ornament made for us and we ALL really love it and I was more than happy to add it to the tree this year!!

Finally, under my tree sits the Marine Bear that I was given for Christmas last year and my Angel Bear that is more adorable than words can describe. Stop by sometime and I will play it for you!!!

That's it for the inside of the house. If I can get it all done the way I want, I will post a picture of the outside of the house tomorrow.

Leah,
I love your decorations. You don't have to have a rhyme or reason at Christmas time. Your tree is beautiful!! In your title you tell us to "grap" hold and hang on, or something like that, and I didn't know how to grap so I thought you might ought to tell us. hahahahaha Doncha just hate people like me. :)

Cute decorations!! I know a church like that where you can get your picture taken...it's a Dollywood! It looks almost EXACTLY like that. And I'd be HAPPY to take that photo for ya! You asked me about that little ornament on my tree...I have had it for 17 years, it came from Avon! And it's Joe's very favorite one.

Ha ha ha - I see I'm not the only one who likes to point out when you make a "typo!" Too funny.

I think your decorations look great and your tree is beautiful!
And your bear Nativity is adorable.

Looking forward to seeing pics of the outside and your special tree.

Leah,
Just wanted you to know I was thinking about you all today. I pray for all of you daily, and especially David. God brings him to mind at the oddest times and I stop whatever I'm doing (if I can) and pray for him. Your house looks great!! Love to all of you, Sherry

P.S. We have 5 inches of snow and it's about 25 degrees. YUCK!!

Your house looks great! I've enjoyed checking out everyone else's decorations and seeing how each person has their own style and frequently change from year to year. It would be boring if we were all the same. :)
