it's getting Christmas-y around here

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that we put up our tree last weekend. Yep, that's right, we're those people. We haven't busted out the ornaments yet, but we did string up the lights and we're all loving the soft glow each night. We also lit up a few trees out front and have hemmed and hawed over how to get some lights up on the roof without having to pay someone hundreds of dollars.

Last night Evie discovered a few packages of bead garlands and went to town. Fantastic job, I say.

Joi just posted this fun DIY Christmas art she made and I think it's so fun! I'm thinking of blowing off work and showering and chores this morning to paint my heart out. Isn't it festive?? I love the gold edge.

Also in the spirit of jumping the Christmas gun, we went to see Santa last night! Evie was alllll over this. She knew just what she wanted to talk to St. Nick about: RUDOLPH. They had quite the convo about where he was, his nose, if she could pet and hug him, et cetera.

I also got my wreaths up! I ended up making mine with faux swags. We're not even sure they're supposed to resemble boxwood, but they were the best I could find. I'm wishing I had made them a little bigger, but they'll do for now! Cross it off the list! I'll try to take some pictures to share soon of them hung.

So have you started decorating for the holidays yet?? Tell me I'm not the only one! :)
