Christmas at the Duplex

Last year we moved in the middle of December, so I didn’t get to truly deck the halls like I wanted. We didn’t get a tree, and we didn’t have a fireplace, so the stockings had to be hung from the window (not nearly as cute as the fireplace). This year we have a fireplace and a mantel, which makes this Christmas elf very happy.

This year we still don’t have a ton of room for a large tree, but we could at least have one. I actually love how sweet and simple it is. Piglet loved that he got to put the star on top with Daddy.

We took a break from Christmas decorating to read The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. I love that Match snapped this picture. It was such a sweet and heartwarming moment with my little one.

Here’s the tree all finished.

Santa also delivered a gift for Piglet early this year. It’s a special Christmas Thomas the train set, which we hoped would go around the tree. When it arrived, we realized it was way too big, and that Piglet would probably knock the tree down playing with it. So it is currently taking up our living room. It’s pretty cute to watch, and Piglet loves it so much.

We hung up our snowflakes again, and I added a little flair to our kitchen. I always wish I could deck things out even more. Maybe when we buy a home again.

I went to a wreath decorating party with Fliz. It was a fun little get together, but it was clear that the ladies were way more experienced at making wreaths. It was my first attempt, and it’s a little thin.

I also saw a fun idea on Pinterest to make an Olaf for the inside of the front door. Piglet loves it!

I love all the Christmas decorations, and I’m trying to soak up every minute of Christmas cheer. I can’t believe that we only have 5 days left til Christmas!
