It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

It's that time of year again! I've never been a fan of decorating... period. It's evident in my home to anyone that's ever visited. However, having a little one in the house means it's a must to decorate for the holidays. In the bottom right corner, you can see our blow up tree and laser lights on the house. For two plugs and about ten minutes of set-up, I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out!


This is the first year we haven't had a live tree. Last year, after Christmas, I bought two pre-lit trees on sale. They were super easy to put together. The tree in AR's room came in two pieces and the tree in our living room came in three. The downside is that NONE of the lights in each section connected!!! I found an extension cord that worked on AR's tree and I ended up draping my own Christmas lights over the one in the living room so it's currently not even using the ones that came with it. Live and learn... story of my life currently!

AR was pretty pumped about her tree if you can't tell! She's being weird though and doesn't want the lights on so I don't know what's up with that but either way, she's a big fan of the Christmas tree in her room. 


I let her pick out the ornaments she wanted to put in her room. I also let her put them on the tree if you can't tell, that's why there's four of them almost touching! She really didn't want any with her name or picture on her room although I convinced her to take a few, she really only wanted Frozen ones in there. 


Our living room tree, nothing fancy, but it works for us. We've never had a topper for the tree so I told AR we could go get one and I'd let her pick it out.


AR's had a blast trying to see if her hand/feet fit old hand/footprints we've made. For the first year of doing all this by myself, I have to admit that I think we did a great job!!! I should also mention that if you come to our house during this time, be prepared to take a seat so she can take every ornament off the tree and show it to you.

I'm not very good at decorating, but especially for the holidays I go all out. Well not all out. Ever since college with my 3ft tree in my dorm room, I have done my best to get my tree up and the house decorated the weekend after Thanksgiving. Our tree isn't decorated because the kids have been gone all weekend, but I hope to do that tomorrow night :D I absolutely love your blow up tree. I haven't been brave enough to do anything in the yard, only lights on the house. You may have inspired me :D
