The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I can't believe it is already Christmas! I absolutely love this time of year for the decorations, the music, the cookies and drinks, the traditions...everyone gathering. This is our 1st Christmas in our home, so there was lots of decorating to do. I know you acquire decorations over time, but I had to get some of the essentials.
I mainly decorated the mantel, the kitchen table and the front porch. All the decor has made our home so cozy! I love it! We have had a fire almost every night and Zach even made one for me and Zoe one morning. There is nothing quite like a fire to warm the home.

I grew up always having a real tree and I would have it no other way for our 1st Christmas. We got a small, fat tree and it fits perfectly in our home. Every Christmas, my sisters and I would get a new ornament for the year and I wanted to carry this tradition on with Zoe. We also get a family one every year now, too.

This is my favorite purchase of the year and a check off my 101 in 1001! Here is our Nativity Scene. I absolutely love it because on each figure it has a Bible verse.

Zoe has been loving the tree and all the ornaments. She goes straight to the santa or a sparkley tree. I can't wait to celebrate Christmas with her and for her to see her gifts.

We hope you and your families have a great Christmas season!!!
