It goes by incredibly fast and I'm still trying to keep up before the big Christmas day arrives.
We have decorations at least! Below is a picture I took as Bebe was helping Dear Hubs put up our tree. Now this tree is the one I had as a single career gal, toting it from state to state as I worked for different TV stations. Okay, so it was only two states but who is counting?
My decorations reflect my style but not completely. I normally cover the tree with good old vintage glass ornaments but we're being a little protective of them since we have a toddler.
We do have some breakables on the tree but not too many. Bebe has been pretty good so far this year! She likes to play with some of the plastic "horsies" and instruments which is fine with me.
I used a thin strand of vintage style silver "sequin" garland I found through Ballard Designs. Gives the dark green tree a little bit of extra sparkle without going overboard. I love tinsel but Dear Hubs says "NO WAY."
We have an older nativity set made in Germany but I've put out this dollar store version so in case we have a mishap...we're okay! It is a sweet little set.
The stockings are ready to go. . . this year we'll be missing our soldier who is not coming home for Christmas. :( I'm putting his stocking out anyway. He did let us know he received his Christmas care package and really enjoyed the cookies Bebe and I made for him.
I love these! My friend made them and they remind me of her everytime I put them out.
