Nonetheless, I have found a way to plaster a smile, decorate the house and blast holiday music through our home. After-all, we have little girls who are MORE than excited about Christmas. So, I'm faking it.
Here are a few of our Christmas decorations from this year. I didn't put all of our decorations up, just enough to make our home feel festive. In addition, I'm including pictures of my three favorite elves making and decorating Christmas cookies. We usually do gingerbread houses, but decided on cookies this year.
We also had family portraits made recently...Here are some pictures we took after we got home (so you can see what our color scheme was) from our session. I can't wait to see what Michelle (a fellow Navy wife) captured!
