Getting Festive Up in Here!

Happy December Everyone!  Time to start decking the halls and rocking around the Christmas tree.  I'm actually a little late compared to some people.  I've seen my FB and IG friends' glorious Christmas trees and outdoor lights pictures.  I like it!  This weekend I took down the few things remaining from Thanksgiving.  My husband put away our scarecrow and took down the harvest wreath on the front door.
We will wait till this coming weekend to get our tree.  The past few years we just went to a local tree lot and found one.  This year we are changing it up, now that my little mamas aren't so little anymore. I can hardly wait to get them all bundled up to find our perfect tree.  I heard a while back snow mix was in our forecast, but that may have changed by now. 

So here are some pictures of what we have decorated so far.  Keep in mind our holiday decor isn't all white lights and fancy shamcy  matching everything. (I do love that too) This is a house of wild girls, and now a crazy kitten! I'm hoping Bella will leave the ornaments alone once the tree is decorated but who am I kidding!?  This year the stockings will have to wait to go up, just like last year.  The thought of the absurdly heavy stocking hangers coming down on my littles mortifies me!  I wasn't thinking correctly when I bought them. The cute sparkly gingerbread people had me in a shopping daze.
I am hoping to pick up a few more little things to add in the mix.  Such as some pretty red or white candles to go inside my candle sticks.  I had some gorgeous green detailed ones but they managed to get warped from the hot sun last year.  Mario also put up our outdoor house lights but I haven't taken a picture of them yet because he just finished.  I picked up a boat load of new traditional lights on B.F. since all our newer LED ones went to the crapper!  Boy was the hubs p'od!  I'm sorry if the pictures are a bit hazy.  I'm trying to learn how to use a regular camera.

Thank you so much for reading!  Much love, Linzi

  6. P.s. Quick and really dumb question. How did you set up your comments to get the reply option? I can't find that anywhere!

    1. Thank you ♡ it's going to go by fast too! About the comment and reply, I'm not really sure. When I set up my blog it automatically made it that way. I'm sorry I'm not that much help. I'm still learning.
