It's starting to look a lot more like Christmas

Last night, Trav insisted that we need to get an 8-9 ft. tree this year. So we did.


We had so much fun putting up the Christmas tree. We played Christmas music, sang Christmas songs, danced around the room, and made Christmas cookies. We ran out of lights last night (because we thought 4 strands of lights were going to be enough) so this morning we finished our tree while drinking some hot chocolate. 

It turned out more beautiful than I imagined.

Since we have the Christmas tree up, its starting to feel a lot more like Christmas and we are waiting for Santa to come. :)

Here's some more Christmas stuff around the house that I adore:



And of course are cookies that are almost gone.


Have you put up your Christmas tree yet?

  1. i would so trade our christmas stockings mat for your penguins one [too adorable!] but it's really the roommate's, so i likely shouldn't.
    we haven't put up our tree quite yet. it's on the weekend agenda though. but there will definitely be a whole post of photos once it's up and decorated. you can count on it.

  2. Bahahahahaha that Christmas tree is GIGANTIC!!!! Go figure, Trav doesn't do anything half-assed! Btw, I'm still giggling to myself about that hilarious s'mores mitt he engineered. HILARIOUS.

    I can't wait to move into our apt and decorate for xmas for the like, 5 days before that we have!
