Our home is officially decorated which means we are one step closer to being ready for Christmas! At first I was a little sad that we had to get the smallest tree on the lot this year to fit into our tiny space but I ended up loving this size more! This tree is a lot more full of meaningful ornaments and has a lot less random bulb ornaments. So every time I walk by the tree I'm reminded of the most beautiful memories. So...small tree for the win!
Caroline's first handmade ornament from daycare last year.
Thomas's first baby ornament.
Our first married Christmas ornament.
Cross ornaments from Caroline and Thomas's baptism.
Our wedding invitation.
The hidden pickle.
I picked up this Christmas countdown link set in the $1 section at Target around Thanksgiving and Caroline loves ripping a link off each day. This also has helped her learn that Christmas isn't today or tomorrow or this weekend...we still have many links to go!
Another framed Christmas card to add to our mantel! It is so wild to see how much has changed from year to year.
We put a little Christmas decor in Caroline's room too but she can't be trusted at night so we have to remove the tree from her room before she goes to bed.

I also wanted to provide an update on our jammie-jams we ordered earlier this season. First, they arrived from China pretty fast. Second, they are SUPER cute but thinner than I had hoped. Third, the adult jams are weird-fitting. Actually, mine fit okay but Matt's are hilarious -- the top is wide and short and the bottoms fit like yoga pants. So I guess that's what you get for purchasing the HA knock-offs, but I'm still pretty pumped about them.
