At the first part of November, I asked my dad if he would build me a table for our entryway.  I found the plans at Knock off Wood and then he revised them to his own liking.  He delivered it the week before Christmas.  I seriously LOVE this table.  My kids have been warned that they are not to touch it and they aren't allowed to open the front door unless I am standing there.  Here are some pics:

Wooden Nativity Puzzle

My dad cut this out for me and then I painted all the pieces.  The kids love playing with it and it is a perfect way to explain the real reason of Christmas to them.

This is what it looks like all put together.

I made these cute little pillows the other day.  I really like how the tree one turned out - not too sure about the ornament one.

This years ornaments. . .

This year I knitted the kids mitten ornaments.  I wrote down their favorite things and put a picture of each of them inside their ornaments.  They wanted to take them off the tree and wear them - at least I know they like them!

Joy and Noel

My dad cut these letters out for me.  I just used scrapbook paper because I wasn't feeling like painting the day I did them.  The paper is mod-podged on and then sprayed with glitter.  They turned out really cute!
