What our Christmas looks like this year…

Posted on: December 16, 2014

I’m learning that any festive holiday with a three year old is fun.  She LOVED Halloween.  Now she’s totally embracing the Christmas spirit.

So far, we done several Christmas crafts.  I featured one here and plan on showing you more before the month ends..

We put the tree up early because of this unpredictable pregnancy and have been letting M have free reign over all the decorating.  It’s a four foot pre-lit tree, just her size, she she’s been having a blast putting all sorts of things on it.

This is what our tree currently looks like.

Ignore the mess.

With Hubby’s help, she wrapped the garland around the tree.  At one point, she hung the light clips around the tree as decoration.  Light clips are clips that you install outside to make hanging lights from the house easier.  They aren’t really made for tree decorations, but I let her imagination go wild.

Sure, it’s not gorgeous, but it’s made with the love of a three year old.  To me, that makes the tree perfect.

This is the first year that we have a mantle to hang stockings from.  Last year, in the apartment, we just thumb-tacked them to the wall  This year, we hung them.

M got to choose her own stocking this year, so she chose the white bear.  Last year, she had the tiny pink one.  This year, that tiny pink one is for her soon-to-arrive baby sister.  Next year, who knows what the mantle will look like!

Hubby added some left over lights to the mantle and we just love it!

That little wreath was a Christmas craft that M and I did using her hands and feet.  I plan on making a post about it soon.

We also plan on creating little Christmas trees using popsicle sticks to add on top of the tinsel for added decoration.

I’ve always loved Christmas.  I love it so much more being a mother!!!
