I am so enjoying Christmas this year with our two little girls, Mary Margaret and Harper Jane. Yes, we do love us some double names. We're Southern, after all. I digress...
Here are some pictures of our home decorated for the holiday. The first one is our tree and as I've said before, it is what I call bottom heavy. Fashionistas out there might say it was "pear-shaped"! Remember my dear 4 year old is highly interested in decorating the tree (and redecorating and redecorating and redecorating). Also notice that most of the ornaments located at the bottom are stuffed ornaments or non-breakable ornaments. Mama is no fool...I learned this trick after MM broke several ornaments last year and amazingly we had NO big gaping wounds and no hospital visits. So I said, Why tempt fate? Buy stuffed ornaments for the child! Notice our tree has no theme. I do have several sweet ornaments from my childhood. I am an ornament person, love to give 'em and receive 'em. I have several ornaments from sweet students from years past. Our tree is what I call eclectic!
Here is our mantle. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...
Here is my navity set (by Southern Living).
Mary Margaret loved my navity so that we decided to find her one. We initially thought it was indestructible. MM must be ahead of the learning curve when it comes to breaking things (bless her heart). The Angel of the Lord (or as she calls it The Angel of the "Ward") is missing her poor little wings and we are missing one precious lamb because it is legless.
Here is the family Christmas picture with our new addition, Harper Jane. She is almost 4 months old. Mary Margaret is 4 years old.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, Y'ALL!!!
