The Christmas tree is up

It's been looking like Christmas in our house for the last 2 weeks and I am totally loving it. I love to put our Christmas tree as soon as possible so that I can enjoy it for a long time. This time of year is my absolute favorite so I always go all out :). Since I already have most things it's pretty easy to get things put together and set up.

This year our Christmas is going to be extra special because it's our baby girl's first Christmas, woooohoooo. I ordered a new set of personalized stocking for the whole family and I am loving the way they turned out.

Our tree this year
The final product that you see took a lot of effort, I mean we have 4 young kids. It took us about 4 days to get everything put together but it was all worth it in the end.

 Hubby and the boys setting up the tree on the first day we started the process
My mom was there that day so she played photographer and took a gazillion pictures for us. I just love that she captured our family in action

Check out my boys super excited about their ornaments
The boys were really into the decorations while baby girl just slept peacefully
My mom and the kids :)
My mommy and my daughter
We kept coming back to the tree all day long. The boys were putting the decorations on the tree then taking them down
Check out my Bean doing his thing
My big boy Tman in action
Bean was loving all the ornaments
Jbird was the big destroyer putting things on the tree then taking them down
At the end of the night we were left with chaos and our living room actually looked this crazy mess. It drove me nuts for days
Luckily for my sanity, we were done 3 days later and I was back to loving our living room again :)
And the view in the dark
When the kids were playing a few days later, I couldn't help snap these beautiful pics. This is the season to be jolly for sure
My mom was playing with the kids and this was such a beautiful sight
I also got my act together again this year and our Christmas cards are done and mailed, I am on a roll. This is my favorite card yet.
Our Christmas tree is up and our house is all festive and happy. I love this time of the year so much and I am so happy that the kids are getting into the holiday spirit too. Everyday, as soon as we come home, they want to turn on the tree and the fireplace. I am loving all the excitement and beauty that this season brings. Christmas is less than 2 weeks away and I just cannot even believe it.


  1. Your tree is beautiful! Love how you made it a family affair :) Love your Christmas card too!

  2. I love this. Your mom being able to spend so much time with the kids is absolutely priceless! I know she really enjoys it.

    Your tree is beautiful and those stockings are perfect! Thanks for the holiday card. We love it and it is already displayed on our holiday card board :-).

  3. I can totally see how getting the tree up could be a four day process...even without kids. The tree is lovely.
