The most wonderful time of the year.

I have so much to update this blog about, but between managing/buying, my husband’s ACL reconstruction surgery, a national pageant and the Christmas madness I’ve been a bit busy.  I’m making lots of plans and looking so forward to getting on a much more regular posting schedule soon! But until then, let me leave you with a few of my favorite pictures from around our house during the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas!  Now, usually my husband calls me his very own Mrs. Claus, but this year I had to keep things low key and surprising enough, I still loved the way everything turned out!

     Since Caleb was a little “under the weather” this Christmas we had to keep it easy with the Christmas tree.   photo(1)So, we settled on a much smaller tree than normal and yet we still loved how it’s tiny glow warmed our living room for the season.

     Here is our little house all lit up at night for Christmas.  I was so excited to finally pull out my Pergola that we found on the side of the road last Spring! With a little greenery and lights I absolutely loved how it just gave an extra special feel to our little walk way.

     Okay, now I get it’s not the prettiest picture in the world, but I think you get the idea.    I realized after uploading this picture that I missed the fact that the upstairs window candles weren’t turned on either. Oops.

     Now how about a little peak inside our house?

     Since we don’t have an actual mantle to hang our stockings I improvised and used our staircase railing instead.

     After searching through Home Goods and coming up short on finding the right size runner for my little coffee table, I was quite thrilled with how a little burlap and ribbon created just the what I had in mind.
