Decorating for Christmas!

On the day after Thanksgiving, we set to work decorating our home for Christmas. I was pretty excited since this is our first Christmas in our new home. We bought a new tree (and on sale half off!), and we picked up some other odds and ends like a wreath and some stockings. Once Connor was up, we got busy hauling everything out from the attic and finding the perfect place for everything.

Once we got everything done, I think little man was pretty pleased with how it all turned out. I know I was!

Friday evening, we were super excited to have my best friend Stephanie and her husband and son over for dinner! We haven't seen them since the day he was born last year, and we definitely haven't spent much time with them since our wedding festivities. It was so great to see them while they were in town for Thanksgiving.

On Saturday, we did the rest of our Christmas shopping and then got some of the presents wrapped up. Connor was excited to wrap the gifts he helped pick out! We also picked up a few more ornaments and got them on the tree, too.

We spent the rest of the evening curled up on the couch watching Elf! It was a perfect two days spent kicking off the Christmas season!

Awww so cute!! We haven't set up our tree yet, maybe this weekend. In Germany we always set it up on Christmas Eve, so there is no rush for me :)
