christmas decor 2017.

Friday, December 8, 2017

So, I was just looking at my post history from 2017 and all I can say is... sad.  This is only my 6th post for the year.  It's been a rough one, with being pregnant with our second baby, taking care of our first baby (who, sadly, isn't a baby anymore, but instead a 3.5 year old who suddenly has opinions on everything?!), having a fairly demanding job, and just generally being exhausted all the time.  I'm 32 weeks prego (hoorayyyy!) so the finish line is in sight.

Anyway, I thought I'd at least pop in and show you our Christmas tree and mantel!  I love looking back on my Christmas posts to see my trees from each year, and I have to say, I'm kind of in love with this year's tree.

Remember when I posted about the greatest post-Christmas deal of all time?  Well, here's the 10.5' tree in all her glory!  In case you don't remember, I paid $80 for this pre-lit tree, a huge box full of ornaments and the tree topper. #youcanbejealousnow :)

As I was taking these photos, it was snowing outside.  Snowing!!  In North Carolina!!  In December!!  I mean, this never happens.  It was so exciting, leaving work early, coming home and snuggling in our PJs, drinking apple cider and watching it snow.  If days and nights like these don't make it feel like Christmas, I don't know what does.

We haven't gotten to pull out our Polar Express train since S2's first Christmas, so it was so fun setting it up this year.

Our elf, Jack, is up to his daily antics, riding the reindeer on the mantel.  S2 loves finding him every morning!

See, snow!!!

One of my resolutions for the new year is to break out the "real" camera more often.  After all, we'll have a sweet baby that we need to capture alllll the photos of.  This is just a start because I love Christmas bokeh (and this chick).

I hope to stop by again before the year is through, but in case I don't, I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!
