Oh Christmas morning, you are so magical! I still get the same giddy feeling I did as a child. My family on Christmas morning...
We were spoiled...
And Rue wanted to eat all of the pine cones and needles off of the Christmas tree... haha
We couldn't help ourselves and had to bring the classic Griswold family Christmas into our home in the form of a Williamson family Christmas drum roll.... ;)
December has FLOWN by! Up until this year, we had a 3.5 ft tree that we would decorate in our apartment. All of our special childhood ornaments and the few we have got from family since filled our little tree to the brim. This year however, we bought a new 7.5 ft tree to use year after year in our new home. Those 15 ornaments looked rather sparse on our new tree, but still special all the same. We scored some Christmas balls to add to our tree next year and I can't wait to use them! I love having the Christmas tree up all of the December and have a really hard time taking it down at the end of the season. It is just so pretty! We ended up having to put a gate around our tree. A certain someone would have had every branch around the bottom eaten to smithereens if we didn't! ;)
We sent out our first Christmas cards this year and I loved how they turned out! A new version of The Sound of Music came out this month with Carrie Underwood playing Fraulein Maria. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that movie!
My brother found out he made it into special warfare services and participated in the tradition of shaving his entire head and eyebrows off. Needless to say, he looked a little creepy, a lot like an alien actually for a few days. haha
We hung our first print in out master bedroom. It is the one room in our house that I have the total vision of how I want the entire room to look when it is finished. I can't wait to continue adding pieces to it throughout the new year.
We spent the week of Christmas in Meridian with my mom and brother. My mom and Rue bonded. :)
We had a wonderful Christmas and are sad to see it go but are excited for what the new year will bring!
Hope you had a Merry Christmas!!
