Tis the Season!
Deck the halls! It's that wonderful time of year again and the house is decorated and we're enjoying the Christmas season. Stockings are hung (out of reach of little fingers), our activity advent calendar is up and in use (click here to see how to make your own)...
One of the earlier activities on our calendar was to decorate a gingerbread house. It was a mess but the girls had fun decorating and then later licking their fingers to clean off the icing.
A favorite smell other than natural pine is a vanilla candle stuck in a vase of coffee beans! Hmmm!
Mistletoe holder made by Anthony's mom...
A cozy corner in our breakfast nook...the wreath I made a couple years ago, super easy and adorable.
I love this train, also made by my mother-in-law.
Our tree which I love so much. Small and yes, leaning a bit, but perfect for us and our home. And far less ornaments since we have a toddler. And our books. We have so many Christmas books and I love it. And so do the girls, they are regularly in the living room sitting on the couch sifting through the books.
BAKING! One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season. These are super simple Brookies - Brownie Cookies.
