christmas in our house...


is looking a lot like this:

stockings hanging nicely.
(i can't wait to make room for one more stocking!)

some of my decor, followed by random nativity scene animals that the littles move all over the place.


i couldn't bare to get rid of my pumpkins just yet...so i used my handy dandy spray paint, and now they are gold.


enjoying the christmas tree in our jammies...or lack there of.


a homemade wreath.


my christmas card holder...thanks to audrey, it actually has a card on it.


some light reading next to the christmas tree.


and of course, a little reminder that my house has more boys than girls in it.
ninja turtles hanging on my christmas tree.


all of these tidbits make me smile :)

how's your christmas decor coming along?
happy weekend ya'll!

  4. no Christmas decor in the wiltse house. woot woot! i'm such a scrooge. but we leave next week until the end of the year so we wouldn't be able to enjoy them anyway! we'll just have to enjoy the Rockefeller tree in NYC. i love the admiring-of-the-tree-in-the-undies photo. true anderson children form. it's too stinkin' cold to be in our undies here. darn kansas weather.
    love you,

  11. my christmas decor is all good to go, but I'm struggling in the "making goodies" part. Usually I'd have made like 6 different chocolates by now. We're talking about chocolate though....so it'll happen! 15 days left :)

  12. i can not believe how tall your little Kohen looks next to the tree in his diaper! (i think that's him at least!) wow, but then again, my kid's almost 18 months already. what??
    YOURS, MINE AND OURS

  13. Well, we pulled out the decorations... and put up the tree... but that's about as far as it goes. Our tree is naked. Hoping to actually get it all put together this weekend.

    Love Kohen's reading style. :)

  17. That wreath is sooo stinkin' cute!! I just love reading about your precious family!

  18. I just discovered your blog a couple days ago, and I have obsessed over it. Like, it's absurd. I've read all the way back to before Kohen was born. You have the most beautiful family and your blog is so creative and inspiring!!! I have a question;do you have to have kids to do embrace the camera? Because I really love the idea, but our kid is a 40 pound dog :)

    Blessings!!!

  21. Love your decorations...especially the Ninja Turtle! haha :) Things like that will make fun Christmas memories for the future. The "light reading" comment {with the book upside down} cracked me up!

    Merry Christmas! :)

  22. I love this Martha Stewart idea for hanging Christmas cards. I have been meaning to make it everyday but somehow (I have 3 kids under 4) get distracted. Maybe today will be the day.


    Thought you might like to see it (if you haven't already).

  27. What a great post and I love your style! That "light reading" picture is the BEST!!! Your playlist is fabulous (Lucy Schwartz, Florence and the Machine and Coldplay - love it); I'll have to check out the ones I don't know! You'll have to check out Brett Dennen if you don't know him already...great stuff!
