The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
with hopes that St. Nicolas would soon be there.It's Christmas time! What a wonderful time of year. This year Josh insisted that we get a real tree, so we loaded up the car and picked out the perfect one on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It was quite a challenge to stuff it in the car and drive home with the back open, but luckily we didn't have far to go. Then while I was pretty tired and worn out, Josh pulled out all of the decorations and did such a great job putting them up around the house. We decided this year not only to have 1 tree, but why not have 3?
The real tree is next to our staircase and has all of our sentimental ornaments in which Josh and I collected while growing up.
We decided that Caroline needed a tree just her size! I had quite a few ornaments left over from Pier 1 Kids that were all bright pink, turquoise and lime green. Perfect for her room! She loves seeing the lights at night!
The third tree was somewhat of an afterthought, but I decided that we had an extra fake tree in the attic, so why not put it up! We have this one set up in our room and decorated with "pretty" ornaments.
We have already gotten all of our red out and Caroline has been sporting Christmas outfits for the last week! What a wonderful time of year!
