I was going to do a whole first level Christmas tour. But I took way too many pictures so I decided to break it up and do two posts, Christmas entry and dining room and Christmas kitchen. I am going to start with the Christmas entry and dining room. Get comfortable because there are lots of photos coming your way!
I had big plans to flock my tree this year. It didn’t happen. Once I got it up, I could not possibly wait to flock it before I put the lights up. And I think I will actually get a new tree this year after the Christmas holiday. There are so many really cool artificial trees available. After having our current tree for 11 years, I think it is time for a new tree! So this will probably be the last year you will see this particular tree in our living room. I have a few updates in our living room to share as well. So let me show you our Christmas living room.
The kid’s bedrooms were the first place I started decorating for Christmas this year. I don’t know about you but usually the bedrooms are the last place I decorate. They were more of an afterthought than purposeful. Last year, they both had a small tinsel tree with twinkle lights. This year, I decided to add some faux garlands (sounds better than fake, right?) more twinkle lights. And red! Because red equals Christmas, right? So all the bedrooms got a bit of red infused in them but I am going to share our Christmas kids’ rooms today.
Hey! I took a little blogging break as we were busy having a super fun fall! It has been jam packed with activity but we had so.much.fun. I have the week off and I have been working on getting the house Christmas ready. We will be doing an advent calendar again this year and I wanted to show you where I put it and how I put it up. I am also going to link to the free printable that I created last year (which I used again this year). Without further ado, here is my 2017 advent calendar + printable.
Can we talk about that time that I was looking through my family’s past Christmas cards and I realized that my 2015 Christmas card says 2016 on it!?! Clearly, I am a terrible proof reader! No one even said anything to me about it! #christmascardfail #notanenglishmajor
