Christmas Decorations

Beginning to Look Like Christmas

In our family we decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving.  This year, decorating was a tad delayed due to our little turkey Bryn showing up!  However, decorating was even more fun since my mom and step-dad were here to help us.  I love seeing how people spruce up their homes for the holidays and wanted to share what ours is like since this is our first Christmas in our new house!

I had so much fun adding Bryn’s stocking to our mantle this year!  All the stockings are from Pottery Barn Kids.


Advent Calendar


I love our advent calendar.  Fun fact: when my mom, step-dad and I went to Great Britain in 2008 we found this same calendar and my mom bought it for my sister.  Each day is a new magnet to add to the board.  Somehow my mom found the same calendar online this year and ordered one for us.  Em has had so much fun putting the magnet on each day!


Christmas wouldn’t be complete without including the girls’ playroom.  We got them their own small tree to add handmade ornaments to each year.   The felt tree from last year is an even bigger hit this year with Em.  Please notice how all the ornaments are on the ground lined up.  Em is a bit crazy about keeping things organized.

This weekend I also took a few minutes to snap some photos of the girls in front of our Christmas tree for our cards.  I am kind of obsessed with how they turned out.

  1. Your house looks beautiful! I would be obsessed with those pictures if I were you too. They are perfect. It makes me want to try for a holiday baby just so I can do that. I love Bryn in the white clothes with the gold headband and Em looks darling too.
