Sorry I’ve been MIA for a few days. It feels good to be back:) This weekend, since we stayed home for Thanksgiving, we got to put up all of our Christmas decorations (usually we have to wait another week since we’re driving back from Michigan).
First off, we started with the tree.
We got a brand new one this year, and said good-bye to our former tree of twelve years. It was time for a new one;)
This year we all helped decorate it, which was kind of unusual considering either my mom is working, or my dad is busy doing something else (he always seems to be working on something).
The final living room decorated:
It was a little weird putting up our stockings this year because it’s going to be Emily’s last year having one, since she’ll be married next Christmas:)
My mom has always collected Precious Moments and her favorite of all our Christmas decorations are her stocking dolls.
She has collected them since I can remember. She eventually had to stop because she ran out of room;)
Besides the stockings on our fireplace, we also have three upstairs on the railing. When we were younger, the ones on the fireplace were from Santa, and the ones upstairs were from my parents. We still get small presents in both though:)
Even though I’ll be away at school for the first few weeks of December, I still had to decorate my bedroom at home:)
My mom and I saw this cute little pink tree at Walmart, and of course I had to get it…
as well as the pink glittering tree skirt…..
and pink cupcake ornaments:)
I couldn’t leave my dorm room without a few Christmas decorations so I brought my *old* Christmas tree from home to put in my dorm.
You better believe its pink:)
I also hung a few strands of lights up around my loft and ceiling. It now looks like Christmas in my dorm room when the hideous fluorescent light is off;)
Just as if I wasn’t in the Christmas mood already, something magical happened. I was eating lunch and when I looked out the window, it was snowing…hard.
may not look like a lot, but trust me, it was coming down hard;)
I believe snow can be magical. They may sounds naive, but I think it’s true:) I mean, my sister got engaged on a day that it snowed. Pretty magical, huh?:)
I think it’s supposed to snow even more tonight, which I am perfectly okay with:) As long as it’s gone by Friday….(I have to drive home and I don’t want to worry about icy roads).
A decorated room, Christmas music in the background, and snow falling outside=a happy Molly:)
Have a lovely night and enjoy the snow if you have any!
Peace and love,
Do you like the snow?
If you celebrate, have you put up your Christmas decorations yet?
