Final Christmas Touches

Our last presents are being wrapped, we're cleaning up the house, and making some good food, all in preparation for this weekend. Is it just me or did Christmas sneak up quickly this year?! 
Today I'm sharing the final touches we put on our family room.  The living room/dining room is more elegant and traditional, while the family room is a little more fun and colorful. In posting these pictures I've realized we have a thing for snow globes, snowmen and golden retrievers, of course (:

We can't forget to hang our sweet pup, Shasta's, old stocking! She loved that thing (: She'll always be a part of our family!

Then in my room I added a simple snowflake garland made from Target ornaments:

What things do you still have to do before the 25th?!

Remember to savor the moments in the next few days ahead and always remember the real reason for Christmas- the birth of our Savior (:
