O Christmas Tree

Holiday Mug Rug for the Swap
We set up our little Christmas tree on Thanksgiving this year, with a baby both Josiah and I have been super excited to get decorations up {well, we usually are, this year we just acted on it quicker!}.  I had been debating getting a larger tree, since ours is just a mini, but Silas has convinced me that is a bad idea...

At least when we moved the box of decorations he can no longer reach the tree.  Also, I finally {four Christmases later} made a little tree skirt for our tree.  I stocked up on Figgy Pudding by Basic Gray for Moda last year, and am putting it to use this year!  I got a little carried away and ended up using 2 1/2" squares, but the result was worth it!

I'm so excited about these little festive touches.  And, of course, it is fun to see the look of awe in that little boy's eyes ever time we plug in the tree lights.  He may not know what's going on, but at least he is thrilled by the shiny ornaments and twinkling lights.  It's so fun being a mommy this year!


  1. Christmas IS more fun with kids! Tony had his first Christmas cookies yesterday while bopping to some seasonal tunes. Merry Christmas!

  2. It's just so shiny, sparkly, and irresistable! Silas is adorable.
