Welcome to a piece of our sweet journey of life. This blog is about our family life-- my husband, my type 1 diabetic kindergartner, my spunky pre-schooler, my newborn baby girl, and myself! Enjoy!

Show & Tell Tuesday: Fa La La La Laaaaa!

Today, I'm linking up with Andrea for Show & Tell Tuesdays!

The theme today is Christmas Decorating Details!

Sleigh bells ring,  are you listening???  Yes.  Why yes we are.  Welcome to our home in all of its Christmasy adornment.

First up, a seasonal calendar and a season-changing wreath from an adorable Etsy shop Hopscotch and Honey

Paper-plate reindeer faces!

A handprint wreath.

Christmas placemats handmade by my Nana. 

Here's a close-up of the details. Isn't it gorgeous and festive?!?!?

My mantle-- pre Nativity set and stockings. 

A GREAT tree-decorator. 

See?  He's quite avant-garde and places multiple ornaments on the same branches or touching each other. :)  The joy of three year olds.  I really do love it. 

Completed mantle decor.

And the Precious Moments "Baby's First Christmas" ornaments.  My brothers and I each had one on our tree while growing up and I really wanted to have the same special item for my boys.  Here's Noah's First Christmas Ornament. 

Michael's First Christmas ornament. 

I made the quilted ornament at a recent Ladies Craft night at church.  I'm so happy with how it turned out!

The tree at night.  How cozy!

The "child safe" zone.  :)  We put all ornaments that the boys can grab at the bottom of the tree and we keep the breakable ornaments higher up.  Of course, not quite high enough to keep my three-year-old from grabbing a breakable one this morning, but all is well. :)

Christmas jammies!

I just LOVE this time of the year!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Until Next Time, 

Much love, Reba
