..Merry Christmas..

I had every intention of getting these Christmas cards out this year,
but in all my chaos it just didn't happen!
So here it is for all of you....

..Christmas Tour..

We officially ready for Christmas!
Christmas decor is up, and presents are bought, wrapped and nestled nicely under the tree.

Now the partying can begin!

I love the feel of Christmas!
My home feels so warm and cozy and I seriously never want to take the decor down.
Here is a tour of our Christmas home.

{The Stockings}
This year we needed to add one more stocking to our mantle and I thought instead of buying a miss-matched stocking that I would make all new ones.

They turned out perfect! So simple and classic, just what I wanted.

{The Tree}
Every year I add a few more ornaments to the tree.
This year I got these adorable candy cane balls.

And fun wrapping paper to match.

{The Loft}
This year we added some more decor to the house.
Eric got this tree for
FREE at a yard sale this summer. I could start a blog with all the deals this guy finds...its out of control! But hey I'm not complaining!

This tree will be the home for all of our kids home made ornaments.
I love that they will have a special tree all to themselves!
This is Tatum's first ornament, Eric helped him make it!

My favorite part is that we have great way to display the boys' nativity and Christmas books.

Thanksgiving this year was spent with the Larsen's. 
We had a huge get together up at Eric's parent's house and had such a blast.

Eric and Kai napping while we waited for dinner.
I think just the smell of Turkey put these two out!

Trey had fun playing with toys...

Can he get any cuter??

Everyone got to talk to Bethany and Jeremy in Seattle via Skype...
We miss you guys!

We played some fun games.
{Holiday Pictionary}

 and our own form of apples to apples. 
We replaced the green cards with family members names...
it sure made it more interesting!

 and over the weekend we gave Trey his first taste of rice cereal. 
He is now 5 months old and the Dr. gave the ok to try it out.
He wasn't the biggest fan, you can see his eyes are red from crying...
maybe 6 months will be better!
