Christmas Tour {2013}

2013-12-09_012

We've been in our new home since June and it's hard to believe it's already Christmas! Every year I do a little Christmas "tour" and it's been fun over the years to look back and see what's changed. This year was especially fun to decorate our new space! No doubt you'll be seeing more of our new place as we make changes. Right now, the paint colors don't reflect my style or vision, they are what the previous owners chose. So just a little disclaimer there. Also, my sister is borrowing my wide angle lens for a college class so most of what I'm sharing here will be detail shots. You'll have to wait for later to see more of a "whole room" view. So without further ado, let's begin.

Side entry and stockings hung where the coats usually reside:

This year's Jesse Tree, on a built-in "buffet" that divides the kitchen and the dining room:

My mom got the kids their own little Christmas trees for their bedrooms above and below:

But he does enjoy having his own Christmas pillow and window clings to decorate his room with. Definitely makes him feel special!
