Deck the Halls!

I can hardly believe that Christmas is just a week away! Life has been so very busy with the day-to-day but we are really trying to take some time everyday to enjoy the season and see the magic of it all through Maddie's eyes. It was a lot of fun to deck the halls of our new home and I am already excited to hit some of those post-Christmas sales to add to our arsenal for next year. Having such festive walls makes it pretty hard to forget that Christmas is coming, even when we are swimming in work, school and new baby preparations. I just wanted to pop in and share some pictures that I took the other night and wish you all a happy one week until Christmas!

Our Christmas tree!

We love getting Christmas cards! This year our hallways is a great place to display them. 
The tattooed Nutcracker got extra tough with a Maker's Mark scarf this year. 
Another gift from Maker's Mark; oh how I miss thee in my eggnog. 
Maddie has her own tree in her room with Thomas, a firetruck and lots of Candy Canes.
Some of her Christmas books, not including the dozen or so we have out from the library right now. And, of course, the countdown to Christmas calendar!
Lots of baking going on in this kitchen lately. 
A surprise afternoon at the Boston Holiday Pops! It was a rough start but the sing-a-long really brought Maddie into the spirit of it all (and maybe seeing Santa helped, too).
