This is only the 2nd Christmas that we have spent in this house and I am so excited to be able to have the tree in the Family Room! Last year I was so afraid that I would not be able to keep j out of the tree! He is 2 1/2 and has done pretty well. I did find him with his hands in the water under the tree. When I asked him what he was doing he told be he was thirsty! I have also found many ornaments “hiding” all around the house!! He is having so much fun!
This is a close up of the NEW ornament that I got from my Bunco Christmas Party! Thanks Elizabeth! I think this is the neatest thing!! I am going to put one of these little scrolls at each place setting at Christmas dinner and have every family write “A WISH” and then we will place it back on the tree and next Christmas we can open it back up and read them!! What a fantastic tradition to start!!
Another of my favorite parts is the mantel. I LOVE our stockings they were a present last Christmas from my Mom and I think they are so me! Polka-dots, though I would never wear them, are so fun and of course the added surprise of leopard just makes these adorable!!
