Night Before Christmas Kids Mantle

Passing Notes Today:  Mrs. Kelly

Hi ladies, 

This year we decided to embrace a "Night Before Christmas" theme at our home.  I will tell you more about that next week.  But in the meantime, here's a look at our mantle.

Gene is checking out the places where my children have crayoned on the stone surround.
I think it adds to the ambiance for Santa, no?
In our house, the fireplace mantle is in the "playroom."  And by playroom, I mean family room where all the toys are housed.  It's not exactly a sophisticated space for displaying valuables...it's more for fun!  I thought our mantle should reflect the kids so I used the books we had been collecting for our "Night Before Christmas" theme.

I love this mirror!  I'm pretending it's a big, blue snowflake.

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse!

I'm convinced the picture below looks like my youngest children.  My husband disagrees.

Thanks for stopping!  Tell Santa, we're ready.  "Happy Christmas to all..."

Mrs. Williams Comments:  I love how you reference elements of the book with the the mouse and sugar plums along the mantle, Mrs. Kelly.  So sweet!  Speaking of sweet, those little ones on the cover of the book, I agree with you, they're the spitting image of your youngests.  Has your husband ever looked at your kids? :)

Mrs. Gosling comment:  I'm with Williams, those saucer eyes could only belong to one couple, Mr. and Mrs. Kelly!!!  I wish that I was coming down the stairs to that mantle Christmas morning! 

PS - Where'd you get the mirror?  AMAZING!!!!
