Christmas is in two days. I can't believe it. This month has gone by so quickly. With school, work and managing a home I've simply been too busy. I so look forward to the day when we have the time to fully indulge in the holiday season.
Our apartment is very small but I thought I would share some pictures of our decorations. There isn't much room for a lot of decor but I had to add some pieces that would help make the season feel bright. The moment Thanksgiving was over I put up the decorations and we decorated our little tree. Since Wesley is walking and pulling on everything, the bottom half of our Christmas tree has very few ornaments. Most of our ornaments are glass so we had to make do with other forms of decoration. Instead of taping the Christmas cards we received this season from family and friends on the wall, I decided to place them in our tree. It gives the tree a more intimate feel and the cards are something I am happy to let Wesley take off and play with.
Thank heavens for Tiny Prints this year because it was mid December and I had completely forgotten about sending out Christmas cards to friends and family. I quickly went to Tiny Prints, chose a card, chose a picture of the family and ordered them. They were here within two days and I got them mailed out just in time for everyone to get them by Christmas. I love the way they turned out. And I loved that sending out Christmas cards finally gave us an excuse to get some family pictures taken. Nothing fancy, we just broke out our camera and made due with what we had but it finally happened!
