Christmas Time is here!

Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year.......
I cant believe its almost Christmas! But I am so glad I had my baby when I did so I could be home for the entire Holiday Season! I usually get Christmas put up in our house around the first week in December, but this year I put everything up the weekend after Thanksgiving! I was so excited to decorate because for the last 2 Christmases, we have been in a basement apartment...and although we still got a tree, there was no fireplace to hang stockings, no stair rail to wrap garland and no front door to hang our wreath. But this year we do....and it makes me so thankful for what we have and how far we have come! Not to mention, its Brett's first Christmas and I want all the pictures to be perfect! :) 

Here is what I have done so far...
Our Tree! We got it at Costco for a whopping $33! The only bad thing is you cant "pick it out"...all the trees are pre-wrapped but I think we got a pretty good one. Plus, with a baby, it was just easier this way than spending an hour in the cold trying to find the perfect tree!

 I love garland! I went to wal-mart and got pre-lit garland and some little gold flowers and some sparkly pine cones and stuck them in the garland. I was pretty proud of myself since Im not the most crafty person I know.

I also put some garland on the mantle but have not taken a picture yet. I am in search of the perfect stocking for Brett. I want to get one with his name on it so I better hurry before Christmas gets here!

And the best part of Brett's first Christmas...
 We took him to see Santa! He was sleeping here but I love what Santa did! It made the picture so sweet! We actually got another one with his eyes open (after ringing jingle bells) and I had a week moment as a mom and bought 2 $20 packages so I could get both pictures! Oh well, at least we saved money on our tree! :)

PS: Brett was asked to be the baby Jesus in our church Christmas concert and Josh and I were Mary and Joseph! It was amazing and Brett was a perfect, peaceful baby Jesus! I will post on that later when I get the pictures! :)

Merry Christmas!!
