I love Fridays on the blog because they force me to look at the bright side of things from throughout the week even if it has been a long, hectic, and slow one! One day stands between me & Christmas break. I'm. just. so. ready.
Yesterday, I told you lovelies that I haven't even had time to get our Christmas tree & décor up. Well, all that changed last night when my awesome hubby brought down every Christmas thing we own from our attic. I am in a winter wonderland now even though it's still 60 degrees out! Who else loves this time of the year?! The long week tried to steal my happy but decorating our cozy home & spending the night with my love definitely turned things around!
I turned an old shutter into our Christmas card display! I am wanting to add some holly & greenery to spruce it up a bit! I scored it for just $6!
One of my favorite Christmas songs & a perfect reminder of this season! Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
This plate was my first Christmas craft of the year! My mom, sister, and I got together and made them. A white plate from Walmart, red spray paint, tape, & a paint pen! The cookie jar is from my mother in law. Love having pieces from family all over our home since they are two hours away!
My sweet and talented hubby putting up the tree while I get out the other décor. He's too sweet!
It wouldn't be complete without Penny's stocking hung by the chimney with care. She may have gotten coal her first year but this year, I hear she is on the nice list! :) It was a "doggone good year" ;) haha cheeseball.
And up goes the STAR! This was our 2nd year being married at Christmas time & it's a tradition now to snap a memory of my sweet hubby putting on the star... the star that reminds us of that holy night when those seeking Jesus followed the God-given star leading them to the little King!
It will be even more perfect with presents piling up but that will come sooner than later! I love our tree. Gold balls, glittery, shiny & matte finish with burlap ribbon and a burlap tree skirt. It is a pre-lit tree with pine cones that I scored for only $90 before we were married! Go me!! We added a few special ornaments. Two that were gifted to us for our first Christmas married & the traditional ornaments from my grandmother!
How is your Christmas tree decorated this year? I would love to hear! This weekend is going to be one fun-filled weekend so come back Monday for an update on all the things! Hint, hint... an apple orchard & family Christmas photos!
