Things have been a little quiet on the blog since life has been a little hectic lately. It is the best kind of busy-ness. The Christmas kind. If you follow along on Instagram, you’ll know that I have made an decorate 408 cookies. More or less. This is after I cleaned up the cookie crazy town that was my house for way too long.
We decorated the house for the season and I love it and always want to do more, while at the same time cursing the lights that I love so much!
The front porch got a new small tree to go in the urn that is usually there.
I had most of the decorations and I love that it adds that extra bit of festiveness to the front porch. And yes that is really the color of our house. Don’t be jealous!
The stockings are hung on the staircase with care.
In the Dining room some glass balls are hung from the lights.
I put some of my candles and mercury glass down lower this year with the nativity. Time will tell if that was a good idea or not. We have had that loving cup since we got married and sometimes I forget about it, but every time it comes out and gets polished I love it even more. The boys are eyeing those giant candy canes…which are about 4 years old.
Our tree fills me with so much joy. I know it isn’t designer and it isn’t picture perfect, but it has so many memories. As much as I would love to do a theme tree, I just don’t know if I would like it anywhere near as much as I like this one.
In addition to bringing so much Christmas cheer to the house there have been all the regular goings on that keep our schedules busy. The days are absolutely flying by! S
low down please, December!
