Tis’ the season to deck the halls and trim the tree! Since I’m putting some finishing touches on my decorations tonight, I thought I’d share my progress… with the help of my adorable helper!
So the boys in my family play football every Thanksgiving with their friends and family…for the past 20 years! When my hubby married into the family he was “lucky” to join the annual Turkey Bowl. So of course we had to commemorate the special day with a football ornament!
I’m sure we all have an ornament for the birth of our first child! Since my daughter was born in December of 2005, I think we received about 10 different ornaments to celebrate her birth! Yep, I still hang every one of them on the tree. I have special feelings for this one since my hubby gave it to me on Christmas morning.
This next tradition came from my parents. Since they’re seasoned travelers, they purchase a Christmas ornament from each vacation destination. I started the same ritual when my hubby and I got married. Here’s our latest… our family vacation to Trout Lodge in Missouri this past Spring.
So here’s a little peak at my fireplace. I got the screen from Sam’s Club a couple of years back from my mother-in-law and it’s a perfect fit for my bright decor! Also, I just purchased the stocking this year from UglySofa.com. Yes, those are Pottery Barn stockings at a fraction of the price!
