song of the day: 'wonderful christmas time'
i just wanted to share with you guys some of my christmas decorations. i don't put up much, but what i do i think is cute (if i do say so myself). as i've said before, our christmas tree is actually a lime tree that we have to bring in when the weather turns too cold. i don't want to have two trees in my home so we throw lights on this one and call it good.
the little paper bags are kind of an advent calendar. i put small toys, books, or activities inside them and isaiah gets to open one each day leading up to christmas. there's only 17 because we'll be headed to florida after that.
i think i change our stockings every year. this time around i used the bags that my punjammies came in (and if you want to know more about punjammies, just click on the link!) much of my decorations, just like my gifts, are either handmade or second hand. i made little paper snowflakes and strung up some vintage doilies.
probably the coolest thing is our old lionel train set. it's the set that matt grew up with and his parents gave it to us last year. isaiah loves it and he and matt will play 'trains' all night long. it winds around the tree and goes through the tunnel. it's just good old-fashioned christmas fun.
