It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

 Christmas Crafting

 Mila and I made cookies!

 One of my favorite ornaments. He is so soft!

 Pretty bottles in our garage.

Poor, tired baby Santa!

Are you guys ready for the holidays? We decorated our house pretty early this year (Matt is generally on top of these things), plus Mila's at such a fun age now. Everytime we see anything Christmas related she says: "Mama, look more Christmas! Baby, more Christmas...look look!" Haha. We also ventured out to see the big guy himself and Mila proudly sat on his lap and asked him for a train (for herself), a toy for baby (unspecified, clearly not a priority for her) and a bone for Gorbie. Very thoughtful she is! ;)

How are you guys preparing for the holidays?

Don't forget to enter our giveaway this week for a Matine clutch!

We decorated pretty early this year too -- mainly because of the shortened Advent season :) I will probably leave them up longer too...I can't ever stand taking them down before the beginning of January!

I think I have that same owl ornament, and I just love it. Love your little Santa too. This is just the best time of year, isn't it?

haha, that is so adorable "a toy for baby" i love that. siblings are just the best. i am not sure if M+L even know "I" it's always "we," - "we want, we love, we think . . ." it's adorable.

Those cookies are looking pretty yummy to me! I hope you're enjoying all the holiday spirit and we've had some nice sunny days this week so it's been nice to get out! I love that last pic of your baby!
