I love decking the halls and getting our house ready for Christmas. I believe that having kids in the house makes this time of year much more magical. We have a lot of decorations from years past and some new ones we have added this year.
However, having a 1-year-old and an almost 4-year-old does make decorating a challenge sometimes. I have moved a few decorations that used to go on the floor and some things we are storing for a year or two before putting out again. Also, our Christmas tree is in the kitchen this year, I thought putting it in the living room would be a bad idea for the 1-year-old. :)
Welcome to our home!
Welcome and Merry Christmas!
We have had this wreath for years.
I love it!
