our first christmas home

so the last time we left off, we chatted about birthday dinners and other things. then thanksgiving came and went and now we are fully engulfed in the christmas holiday. i have been visiting with loved ones, shopping for wonderful gifts, listening to hours and hours of christmas music and crafting for girl christmas. i thought it was about time for a blog update. shall we?

our christmas tree is up and lit every single night. it makes me so very happy.

i went with a red/silver/gold theme this year for our little tree. we also picked up some little felted animal ornaments from crate & barrel last month. i love our tree. it's colorful and sparkly. love lighting it up every night.

one of our favorite little felted friends (you can see a little moose in the background too)...

since we moved to a new place, we now have a FIREPLACE. and although we don't ever use it (dang high gas prices), doesn't mean i can't jazz it up for the christmas season. i just put some mirrors up that i already had, put up my wreath i made last year and hung our new stockings. one for A and one for me. and one for a puppy. he needed a stocking too.

these little guys hang out up on the mantle too. love them. they were originally ornaments but i knew i wanted to cut off the string and put them on display. and now the two hang out on a christmas book on the mantle.

so there is our first little place all decorated for christmas. i love that we are about to experience our first christmas as a married couple. can't wait to make our own traditions and wake up on christmas morning together. oh what fun...
