I love Christmas, and I love decorating for Christmas, so I went all out this year. It was the first year that I was able to decorate because it was our first Christmas at home.
It turns out, I am highly allergic to pine trees. I touched one and my hand swelled up and turned into a rash, so Brad told me that we had to have a fake tree! As disappointed as I was, he bought me this little miniature pine tree for the side shelf. I love it.
This was the garland and bow I got for the kitchen window (sorry the pictures are so dark)
My cute cocoa set from my ward's Young Women's as my wedding present 2 years ago!
My adorable place-mats and centerpieces. Thanks Mom and Sam!
Good smelling pine cones and the cookie jar Brad INSISTED we get. haha
Kitchen (again sorry the pictures are so dark!)
Our record player all Christmased out with our stockings and candy-cane garland.
Our Christmas tree! It was absolutely beautiful in silver and red with a pearl star! Even the presents matched :)
These are the no-bake cookies that Brad and I made for the neighbors. It was fun to continue on the family traditions of baking for the neighbors.
Me, with all of the presents from Brad's family. Thanks you guys I loved it all!
Brad with all of his presents from his family! I think he liked the cooking hat the best!
