Adding Some Christmas Cheer

| Leave a comment

I have been a little behind on getting Christmas decorations out this year, probably because time just flies by anymore. I feel like my days go by in a blink of an eye. I guess that this is normal when you are a first time parent.

My days have been looking like this here lately – get up to feed Ada, drink some coffee, play time, fight with her to get her down for a nap, drink some more coffee, clean what I can in the house, do one part of a load of laundry, deal with a cranky baby because her nap wasn’t long enough, try reading books and rocking to help her go back to sleep… oh, it’s 5:00 pm already?! What in the world are we going to have for dinner? Scramble around in the freezer and pantry, and find wine, ice-cream and cereal.

By the time Randy comes home, I’m exhausted with a very overtired baby. Luckily, Randy is extremely understanding and has made some fantastic dinners for us. If it wasn’t for him, I’d probably starve! 😉 As you can see, decorating has not been a high priority this year. But I did manage to get some decorating complete. It was important to me to have a little bit of festiveness around the house; it is after all, Ada’s first Christmas!

It helps to be dressed in cute Christmas pjs to feel like Christmas! And I love that we match! Yeah, I’m that mom! 😉

I absolutely adore these bottle brush trees from Target! I think they are perfect for Ada’s nursery! I bought them on Black Friday and did not receive them till about a week ago. My order, somehow got lost; but Target was super helpful and fixed the problem immediately – so kudos to Target.

I think the colors are perfect for a little girl’s room! I happened to have card stock in these colors, so I made the “Merry & Bright” banner. I just love how it all came together!

And here are some more pictures of Ada in holiday pjs! Isn’t she the sweetest? I sure do love this little baby!
