Oliver wasn't quite sure what to make of the Christmas tree but he's being a good boy and has only stolen a few ornaments off the tree... We even had a little photo shoot as I put the tree together, he's such a little ham, I love it... it's crazy to think this time next year we'll be wrangling a dog and a baby for Christmas tree photo shoots.... wow. really crazy. [is it strange that it still doesn't feel real sometimes that we're having a baby?! anyways, back to the Christmas tree...]
I grew up in a household of multi-colored lights on the Christmas tree, but I am so partial to white lights, to me there is something magical about simple white lights in contrast to the dark green tree and the bright pops of color from fun ornaments...
one of my favorite parts of decorating for the holidays are unpacking all our ornaments - I love pulling out ornaments and thinking of where they came from or who gave them to me or where I was in my life when I received/bought them, such a powerful time to reflect while being completely in the moment [if that makes any sense at all?!]
...I didn't get a lot of good pictures of ornaments, but I'm going to go back and take some more and do a whole post on our favorite ornaments! (get excited, hah)
like I said, all the gifts are bought - the ones we have [some are enroute via the mail] are all wrapped and under the tree... I LOVE wrapping gifts, it's kinda sick. It's going to be hard not to run out and buy more gifts once they're all wrapped [I've already told all the family that I'd be happy to wrap their gifts, I have faith that my MIL will let me help her wrap all her gifts so I think I'll be able to get my fix in once we're done]
the finished product....
what do you think?
are you decorated for the holidays yet?
