Merry, happy, joyful Christmas to you!
I super love Christmas time and all magicalness and goodwill towards men!
I think Santa is adorable and fun, but we are celebrating Jesus's birthday here!
This is our first Christmas in this house, so it was fun to decorate!
This is my favorite project that we did!
It's just old fence from our backyard. I'm thankful for a handy husband. Nobody should trust me with a saw!
My friend, Anna, gave me her old brass chandelier. I was so thankful for it. My old chandelier made me sad! This one got some spray paint and some paper around the light covers!
I need to paint my front door. Any color suggestions?
Love my kitchen tree with all the treats!
This side just got a few little trees on top of the cabinets.
Cabinet hardware is still on my To Do list. Maybe Santa will bring some?
Our backsplash is just old fence also:
The plan was subway tile, but all my remodeling dollars were gone after we put the counters in. So this was FREE! One day we may do the tile.
Katie Belle made a Christmas plate at school. I did the same thing at her age. She couldn't believe I had one too!
This is her room:
I think we will both be sad to take the giant snowflake down!
Does a unicorn tree topper say "unto us a child is born, and he is Christ the Lord"?
Probably not, but God made us whimsical and silly. So I think it's ok. And Katie Belle is positive there are unicorns in Heaven, so...
Her red tree has all the ornaments she has gotten every year from my mom. And ones that she has picked out herself.
Jesse just got a tiny tree and some garland on a high shelf due to the fact that he's 1 1/2.
This was best for everyone.
He has actually been really great with all the decorations. I DID find a little football stuck in the living room tree yesterday though!
As I was taking this picture I saw the kids out the (dirty) window, riding their car.
(Marcus was out there with them. We don't leave our children unattended in motorized vehicles. That clarification was for my mom's sake.)
Here they are from the other day:
This is Jesse's favorite thing to do right now. And KB's favorite thing to do is make Jesse happy...most of the time anyway.
It's always clean and I make my bed everyday.
If Marcus is at the fire station, I'm usually sleeping with a pile of laundry!
I made my bed just for you!
