Christmas decorating happened this past weekend at our house.
This year, it was a bigger deal than usual.
(for me, anyway)
I was still struggling with feeling settled here...
missing our old house and the comfort it provided.
Let me say this-
Sunday night after the decorations were up
and the house was all clean after hosting Thanksgiving,
I fell in love with our new house.
I love the cozy feel.
I love that our little 102 year old home is even more beautiful
with a little help from the Christmas decorations.
I want to leave them up year round.
enough of my blabbering...I'll let the pictures do the talking.
J was pretty excited to play with his very own Nativity set...
..and flip through some new reading material.
And let's not forget,
a few of my favorite ornaments that get hung on our tree
year after year.
...and although this is not decoration related,
I still wanted to share this sweet photo I captured
during our Thanksgiving celebration with family.
Uncle Mark is pretty much the best.
