I don’t think homes are ever as “homey” as they are at Christmas time! I just love the house all decked out for the holiday season.
And, yes, we had Christmas Carols playing while we decorated. (My hubby pretends to hate that fact, but I know he secretly loves it 🙂 )
We have quite the stock of Christmas Decor as we were married on December 17th…we not only have wedding decor we are able to pull out and re-use each year, but we also received many Christmas-themed gifts. Sill, I feel rather limited since we have decided to leave all the breakables packed away for the next several years while we have little ones running around.
I bought a number of empty boxes on Christmas clearance a few years ago and use those and some empty gift sacks to “fill the void” from day one.
It has been sitting in a corner of the basement for the past couple of years, but I decided to push it up to the coffee table and spread out a selection of Christmas books upon it. I’ll admit I was thinking cute decor more than practical function, but Josiah has really made it his own.
