It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! It’s safe to say our halls have been decked! I started decorating just after Thanksgiving but it has taken longer than in years past. 🙂 Not sure why… (ha) but here are some of our Christmas scenes.
We picked up our tree from a local farm. Javi loved walking in between all the tall trees and he helped to choose the one we brought home! Next year, we’re interested in cutting down our own tree. This year I couldn’t make the trek through the woods.
We’ve been so good about our advent calendar/activities! We haven’t missed a day yet. So far we’ve gone to the town tree lighting ceremony, picked out a tree, decorated the tree, and tried a candy cane (among other things!).
Even though Sean loves real trees, I couldn’t resist picking up this (fake) beauty from Target on Black Friday. It fits perfectly in the kitchen but I may move it to the playroom. Javi LOVES walking in the house and yelling “MY TREE!” 🙂 We’ve since added ornaments.
The mantle is my favorite part of the house now. I love seeing Santa and all the small trinkets. I feel like Christmas time is the ONLY time I like so much on the mantle.

I have a nativity scene that was my grandmother’s and Javi loves playing with it. Though his favorite thing to do with it is hide the baby Jesus…
We decorated the tree this evening! We only had one ornament casualty!
36.4 weeks. Yikes. So ready.
All in all, the house is decorated, the Christmas cards have been addressed (though not mailed yet), all the presents have been purchased and half the presents are wrapped AND we’re meeting Santa on Sunday. Two thumbs up for checking things off the holiday list!
