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...
