We are getting antsy to get back on the road again, but have decided to have our first Christmas here in the apartment! YAY! What can I say, the fire is SO cozy and there is just something so exciting to think about Christmas in our new place!
Sophie thinks its TOO COLD. Hahahah!
I just have to show you this because it made me laugh and laugh...
We have a no shoes in the house rule. I am so happy to see that Avery's baby, Alivia, is also obeying those rules .
Cutest. Thing. Ever.
While we are here, we decided to go ahead and lay concrete out back while it was nice and cool. The kids could hardly stand to do school, they kept migrating back to that big window to watch.
If you can't beat them, join 'em.
We did a study on concrete and how its made instead! ;) And then on to regular school once they were done pouring......
They begged and begged to make hand prints. Seemed like a good idea to me!
They decided Sophie was part of the family too and needed her print:
So I have been thinking and thinking about how I am going to pull off Christmas in the midst of a very colorful retro apartment. I think green, brown, red and my normal tree colors will look awful!
I started searching for orange, blue and white decor instead, and because we are planning to leave for a few weeks to go to Georgia for Thanksgiving with my family, I thought I'd cheat this year and put up the tree BEFORE Thanksgiving to we can enjoy it a week now, and 2 weeks before Christmas.
There is nothing I love more than designing new Christmas tree themes!!!! After that I get bored of them, and that is why I saran wrap them all decorated, and store in the barn, so I just fluff and dust after this first year. BAHAHAHA!!!!!!
I had great helpers shopping at Hobby Lobby and decorating back at home:
I am SUPER happy with how fun it turned out!!!!
And its so cozy at night when the lights are off. I think that's my FAVORITE part of Christmas decorations. Cozy nights and mornings without other lights one......
I still feel a little guilty for decorating before Thanksgiving, but I am thankful for a new apartment to get to decorate, so that counts RIGHT!? ;)
