And I should also mention that I've NEVER decorated for the holidays before. We've always gone to my parents' house and so we've never had to. This year my parents are coming here and we've had a couple of Chanukah parties, so this is my first ever decorating attempt. Dave admits that he's just along for the ride!
Also in the dining room are our Advent wreaths. We aren't doing calendars this year (eventually I want to make one) but we do have the wreaths we light every night. We made the paper one with Sam and Rachel's hands and you can find my tutorial here. Every night when we light the candles Sam wants to "re-light" his candles too! And we sing the song they've been using in Sunday School to light the candles there. It's a really pretty song and I love singing it every night.
And then we have the top of our piano. Currently the menorah (with four candles waiting for tonight (Tuesday)), some Chanukah books and another decorated plant are on the piano. When Chanukah is over (the eighth, and last, night is Saturday) the nativity set will sit where the menorah is.
