Oh Christmas Tree!

So..... Christmas has got to be my favorite thing ever.

EVER! Wait..... no it's cupcakes.... wait. Nope. IT'S CHRISTMAS!

I would have had my tree up on November 1, but we were thinking we might get our house before Christmas, and I didn't wanted to put up all my decorations and then have to take them down a month later. Then I would have to put them back up and take them down another month later. Now that we don't think we will be getting it any time soon, they're up!

And just like every couple celebrating their first Christmas together should, we have TWO Christmas trees up! The first is a white tree with white lights with colorful, sparkly ornaments!

There's even presents underneath already!

In our living room, we have a traditional pine with white lights that is decorated with vintage look mittens and stockings, rustic woodland animals, and another primitive delights.

My favorite ornaments were bought on Etsy from tranquiltrail. See the cute primitive snowman ornie? That's one of them! I have two snowmen and two Christmas tree shaped ornaments on my tree. They're made entirely from materials found in nature and are definitely must haves for any primitive or rustic tree.

Underneath this tree are some of my favorite holiday books: Olive, the Other Reindeer, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and a Merry Christmas Songbook I've had since I was a kid.

And what would Christmas be without footie pajamas? Colton and I picked some up from Target. True, we had to invade the boys section.... but they fit just fine and we love them! His are sock monkeys and mine are red with penguins.

More Christmas decorations around the house coming soon!

Psssst... have you entered the giveaways yet? There are two below this post and the last... JUST KEEP READING!!! Both giveaways are open until Saturday, December 5.
