I know that I’m totally late in posting this, but I wanted to give you a little taste of our holiday season. I posted several things on Instagram, but didn’t have time to do my usual Christmas post. Better late than never right?!
We started decking the halls in our kiddo’s room with a kid friendly tree all his own.
Then travelled to Old Time Christmas Tree Farm and cut down a family tree.
I added a gold burlap garland this year and still don’t know how I feel about it…
While Christmas shopping, I ran into these reproduction ornaments on sale and may or may not have bought all but one box in the store…
… They are the same brand as my great-grandmothers ornaments, circa 1930s, that don my tree every year.
My favorite decorations this year were the addition of apothecaries filled with ceramic village pieces.
The ceramic buildings were Target clearance finds from the previous year. We loved the warmth these charming edifices added to the holiday décor!
We focused a lot of our time and effort on making this season a magical occasion for our son. On several occasions, we made time to drive around our area and look at Christmas lights. We also attended Zoo Lights at the Houston Zoo for the first time. It was an enchanting experience for all three of us and a fantastic family activity for those thinking of attending next year.
There were many stories of Santa and Rudolph…
…But our focus remained on the nativity and the coming of our newborn Savior.
We had wonderful times with family and friends. Although part of me is sad that the holidays have passed, I am excited for a new year.
I can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store for us!
How did you spend the holiday season?
