it’s beginning to look a lot like christmas

christmas-2016-1Hey, everyone! Did you know that there are only twelve more days until Christmas? This holiday season not only marks the first Christmas that we’re celebrating with a baby, but also the first one that we’re celebrating with a tree! Somehow that seems to make it more official.

christmas-2016-2Our home is looking pretty festive. Not as festive as many other homes, but extremely festive for our standards. Since we’re establishing a wide variety of traditions this year, decorating our home seemed like another important one to start. So far, we put up Christmas lights, hung a wreath on our door, and purchased a little outdoor plant.

christmas-2016-7Inside our home is a different story. We set up and decorated a tree, wrapped some gifts, hung tree lights, and put scented candles all over the house.

christmas-2016-6christmas-2016-5We bought a fair number of ornaments for the tree this year, sticking to a white, black, and gold theme. Because we had to start from scratch, we also didn’t want to buy too many. I think that it would be fun to add to our collection each year, in addition to whatever Remy will make us as she grows older.

christmas-2016-8It will also be fun to look back at pictures of our tree every year and see how it’s changed. Honestly, I feel as if life is so much more exciting with a child! Why did we wait so long to have one?

(Early) Merry Christmas, all!
