i finally set up a few christmas decorations. thanksgiving was super busy and i just needed a small break to recover before diving into the christmas season. but it's here now. i love it. i'm considering leaving the tree up all year. i can't get enough of just staring at the lights at night, in the quiet after the kiddos hit the hay. and it takes up the space under the window that i've had a hard time filling with some sort of decor...if i'm being honest! yep, i really do love this time of year.
|my grandma shirley always gets the kids these singing toys. izzy turns all three of them on at the same time. not sure how much longer these are going to be out of storage...|
|the advent calendar my grandma pat made for me and my siblings. it's old. but it still does the trick and i love it.|
|my mom bought me this set a few years ago. simple and beautiful.|
|love gold at christmas...or anytime. i'm thinking my mirrors need to be dressed up in one way or another all year.|
|i made those blocks last year with my mom, sister and sister-in-law. the trees my mom had when we were little. its great to have so many christmas items now that i had growing up.|
