Well, I'm a day late and a dollar short, but here's the current state of our Christmas decor.  I have to warn you, there isn't much.

First, our tree.  We leave on our trip in just 4 days, and didn't want to make a lot of fuss about unpacking (and subsequently repacking) a lot of STUFF.  As a compromise, I promised my husband that if we got the tree out of the attic and put it up, I wouldn't get all the other ornaments and decorations out.  Now that's it's up, I really like the simplicity of it.  It's got sparkly silver garland, silver bows, and the big silver star on top (nevermind that it's a little crooked...) My cat loves to sit underneath it, but of course as soon as I pulled out my camera she ran away.  I should also mention that there were gifts under the tree, but as we had 'Christmas' last weekend they've all been opened.
I did decorate the dining room table.  Meagan gave me this cute table cloth for my birthday, and once the tree was up I was craving a little more festive atmosphere in my house.  It was set really nicely and I had a pretty centerpiece and everything.  Unfortunately, all you get to see is the aftermath of dinner with the family this weekend.  See, I haven't even cleaned up all the dishes yet.
Finally, this is the last bit of decoration in my house.  (See, I told you there wasn't much.) I picked up this bucket at Michaels the day after Thanksgiving because I thought it was just super cute.  While I was trying to think of what to put in it, it just sort of got taken over by all the hat-knitting going on on the couch right next to it.  Oh well, it works :)

I love that table cloth! :-)
The bucket is cute too - at my house any open basket or bucket is instantly filled with yarn!
