Here are the bits and pieces I have been making for Christmas in situ (although I did not make everything, in fact Baby MiH had his own contribution). I love the natural theme I followed this year, but I really do not have enough ornaments for the house, but it something I can add to next year and the following ones - and replace (slowly) the ones I bought on the high street some time ago.

No tree for us - a toddler, a baby and a Christmas tree, it was too much to handle.. However my Mum has a Christmas tree - so presents will be at the feet of a tree - and everything will be in order.
I am really happy I had spent the time making Christmas decorations - I love how for once I can display what I have made - but maybe it is the process of making Christmas as early as I want that really appeals to me!
