You may already know that we are eagerly anticipating Christmas in my home if you read the post Why I Believe in Santa Claus. When my friend Jo-Lynne from Musings of a Housewife suggested an Ornament Show & Tell, I eagerly jumped at the chance to take pictures of our tree and stroll down memory lane. You can see the rest of the ornament show & tell from other bloggers by clicking the photo below.
My Favorite Things
We’re celebrating back-t0-back Baby’s First Christmases in this house and I am overwhelmed with joy this season. This summer, we purchased a new home and my husband has worked feverishly to complete all the updates on our fixer-upper in time to host his family for the celebration. They are arriving today and tomorrow from Kansas and Seattle. We can’t wait to welcome them into our home! I’ve been ‘working’ with Hannah to learn how to say Merry Christmas by reciting the phrase each time we pass the tree, but she has yet to attempt it. I have faith that she will catch on soon since she seems as enthusiastic about the season as we are. I can hardly keep her away from the tree and, luckily, we’ve only lost 2 ornaments to the clamoring hands of TODZILLA.
Zac and I shared our first Christmas together in 2008. Our tree occupied most of the living room of our small apartment and we decked it with classic gold and red ornaments. Since that year, our family has furnished a delightful collection of ornaments to showcase along with a few of our favorites.
After the jump, I’m taking you between the boughs for a sneak peak at the ornaments I reach for first in the storage boxes. Plus, I’ve shared our Christmas e-card.
Merry Christmas friends and family!
Wishing a very Merry Christmas to you and yours from your friends at Eco Incognito.
