Today I am linking up with Andrea to share our home at Christmas time. Just for fun you can see our 2013 decorations HERE. This year we kept it pretty low key. We have a lot going on RIGHT after the new year so we decided it was best to not go crazy this year. LOL!
The past few years we have used a real tree! We love everything about using a real tree...the hunt, the smell, the clean up/no storage...;) The only downfall is I can never get the star to be strait. *insert angry face here
We have used these red, gold, and silver ornaments for a few years now. I have changed the ribbon and garland up but mostly it stays the same. Mark and I both have so many ornaments from when we were kids and from our wedding. I am looking forward to putting up a tree with just those next year as well as a "pretty" tree too! ;) We do put 1 ornament on the tree each year though...
"Every life leaves something beautiful behind."
My mom gets Wyatt and Sloane a new ornament each year. It's something we did growing up and it's so fun that she carries it on with her grandchildren as well. She gave us this ornament our first Christmas after Wyatt and Ryder were born. It's so special to us.
I usually put all the past Santa pictures on the shelves where the stockings hang but like I said earlier...this was part of "lowing low" this year.
lights, Christmas movies, snuggles = PERFECT!
I loved the little red truck before it was cool to like it. ;) LOL!!! I have this little display set up in the kitchen. I found this fun chalkboard tree at Target but I didn't know what to write on it...Wyatt took care of that for me. *perfect*
Christmas movies are on repeat around our house so I make sure they are easily found...and we love us some themed Lego's for sure!!
The decor has plants and then a candle in the middle- Bath and Body 'Tis the Season...my current favorite.
Wyatt and Sloane both have their own tree in their rooms as well. I don't touch them....it's their tree to decorate...
That finishes up the Christmas Home Tour 2016. If you were here in person just know there would have been some great Holiday Radio playing on Pandora as you walked through. Merry Christmas friends!
