O Come all Ye Faithful Mantle 2012 - take 1

being sick has really slowed life around here but we did manage to get the bones of our mantle up over this last week. we still have to put the glitter letters on the stockings, tweeking the mantle and finishing preparing our home to embrace the coming season.  I am having the kids stay home this weekend and help me get it all wrapped up before our family get together's.  I am practicing using a new set of "glasses" to see all of this as a gift..trying to not let all of the stress undo me causing me to be a scrooge...it will all get done just as it is meant to be and i want to enjoy it all to boot!  I really am excited to share it all with you.

Our inspiration this year were the words O Come from the song O Come All Ye Faithful.. there is something about the invitation that gets me..and faithful? me? not hardly but still...come

yes you...me...just as we are no strings..no try harders..and yes with all the broken messiness just COME

a song about adoring a baby king

in flesh appearing

we will have a full post up over the weekend with all of our O Come all Ye Faithful decor...see ya then!

do you have an inspiration word or theme you used this year?
