Making our House a Home: It's beginning to look a lot like ...

... Christmas! For one reason or another I never bought myself a proper Christmas tree when I was single and neither had Mike. When we moved in together we were festive, decorating and lighting up the outside of the house, but decided to wait until we moved to get a proper tree. Enter the end of my first trimester and a burst of energy the weekend before Thanksgiving and we were good to go (much to Mike's chagrin that we had a tree up before Thanksgiving ... hey, I have learned to use that energy when I have it!). We did wait to decorate outside the house until after Thanksgiving and hope to do more lights next year when the bushes have grown into their skin a bit.
First snowfall (of what I fear will be many) of the season!

Our first tree ... complete with a few presents ... still looking for coordinating, but not match-y stockings for BK and the cats.

The entryway ... I need to find a small table to put under the mirror.

Daisy LOVED the fire ... she just sat and stared the entire time it was going.
She mourned the loss of the fire by warming herself on the marble ... so sweet.

Merry Christmas!
