As I have mentioned before, we LOVE Christmas and all of the decorations that come along with it. We opened 14 boxes of Christmas decorations on Saturday! No, unfortunately it won't all fit in our current house. I did manage to get a tree in (almost) every room though! We made a fun night of it with hot chocolate, Christmas music, holiday jommies, and lots of "No Reese, don't touch that!" I have loved having it all up and then looking outside to see the snow. It just seems more Christmas-ish than humidity and 70 degrees! Brace yourself, LOTS of pictures are coming. This is really a post for my sister- I know she appreciates it!
We started the night with hot chocolate- a first for our girls.
Reese was not sure what to think
Harper was practically licking the mug clean
Chad read a book- it somehow related a Christmas tree to the birth of Jesus
The girls were SO anxious to get into the boxes
Here, they are listening to Chad's specific instructions on decorating
Reesey needed some help
Harper was a pro
(notice the tip-toe stance!)
The finished product!
(after redistributing all of the ornaments from the bottom of the tree)
Tree #2- this is in the girls' room
Tree #3- This is in Cash's room
Tree #4- This is in our room. . .
. . .and it has one of these for each year Chad and I have been married/engaged.
(Chad's parents and the Laughlins do this too and they have enough to fill an entire tree- I can't WAIT for that!)
Some other favorite areas of decorations include. . .
This is by our front door (pardon the dog bed). I LOVE mercury glass and it is perfect with some simple greenery and lights.
Here's an up-close look
Since we didn't have room for our other large tree, I used some of its ornaments to fill this mercury glass urn.
No fireplace for the stockings? No problem! This was Chad's clever idea.
Some ribbon and different colored candles gave my everyday pewter candlesticks a holiday update!
Nativity or Nativi-TV?
