P.S. Don’t forget about the Christmas Holly Jolly Pajama Party I’m co-hosting next week! Link up right here on Tuesday, December 10th! It’s the perfect excuse to show of your little one in their Christmas jammies!
Our Christmas tree is up! Our Christmas tree is up! It’s a small miracle.
Hudson “helped” of course. And by “help” I mean he took down ever single ornament that was within his reach. So needless to say our tree is naked on the bottom. He’ll be a great helper when it’s time to take down the tree I’m sure.
He loves pointing to his favorite ornaments. So far he loves my husband’s childhood winnie the pooh ornament and this one from his first Christmas. He has good taste.
This little hand print from last year is one of my favs.
Thanks to Hudson spreading joy and Christmas cheer around the house (literally) we’ve cut back big time on decorations. Our house still feels festive just the same. I decorated our dining room buffet with my favorite mercury glass trees which are thankfully out of reach from tiny little hands!
I’m still waiting for our Christmas card for this year to arrive…..I keep one of each of our past cards and am trying to think of a cute way to display them all this year. Here’s what I did two years ago…..
This obviously can’t happen in our house this year because Hudson would be ALL OVER it. Once I come up with something I’ll be sure to share!
Moving on….here’s our family room mantel. Am I the only one who has to decorate around a big TV? It’s really cramping my style! And Hudson LOVES petting the reindeer on his stocking. I’m actually really surprised it hasn’t been taken down and worn as a hat yet. But we still have a few more weeks to go, so I’ll keep you posted.
We line up all his little buddies under the tree. The bear, girl reindeer, and penguin were mine growing up and it’s so fun to watch Hudson love them just as much as I did.
And of course we busted out our little people nativity set! Hudson got it as a Christmas present last year even though he was way too little to enjoy it. I knew he would love it this year!
And no Christmas display is complete without Christmas books! This is our little collection so far (minus a few that have managed to go missing already and some that we do not want Hudson to damage)….I’m hoping to grow it big time this season so that next year we can read a different book each day of December. So what books are we missing? What are your favorite Christmas books for kids?
