John is a big believer in getting out all of the Christmas decor the day after Thanksgiving. I think it’s sweet that he wants the Christmas season to last as long as possible.
But this year, our fantasies of all of us decorating together just didn’t seem to work. Hello, active two year old! Parents, I know you know what I’m talking about.  Finally, one day, about a week or so after Thanksgiving, True and I left the house for a few hours and when we came home, John had fully decorated the entire house, except for putting ornaments on the tree (we did that as a family). I know, I know! I love him, dearly.
Here’s a little tour:
I found a vintage Santa cookie jar! Although I’m afraid to ever wash it or actually use it, I love it so. And the adorable snowman music box was a hand-made gift from Jackie, who is ultra talented. True loves winding him up.
Our Oh Joy banner is from Minted. We also got our holiday cards from them (first time ever!) and I love the quality. Highly recommended for all special occasions.
John made this center piece using a live wreath, a vintage wreath, some clip on birdies, and teal bulbs. Love. 
True’s first construction paper Christmas tree. Swoon. I love that we’re in the age where we get to tape his creations to our windows. 
Grandma made True his first ever advent calendar banner using cut out mittens. So cute.
Sending cozy holiday wishes to each of you…
Love, Kelly Rae
