Christmas in the Girls Room

Harper & Eloise’s room is mostly finished & is all decorated for Christmas! Fa la la la la!!

Christmas in Girls Shared Room

The twin beds & sloped ceilings are my favorite things in this room, the girls think it is hilarious that we hit our heads on it all the time when we tuck them in. I would love to add shiplap to that part of the ceiling once we finish some other rooms in the house! One project at a time! ๐Ÿ˜‰ The girls have been begging for a Christmas tree in their room since we had a mini one in there last year, we couldn’t resist this rose gold one we found at Target, it reminded us of one Brandon’s grandma used to have in her house! I swear the ornaments get rearranged daily, Claire loves to take them off one by one and put them in the dresser drawers. Harper is so cute and asked for a radio in here so she could have music on when they play in here. Added to her Christmas list immediately. Bless her little heart!!!!

Decorating kids rooms is seriously so much fun, we can’t wait to get started on Claire’s room next!

Oh Christmas Tree

This is easily our favorite weekend of the year, full of leftovers, naps & all the festive happenings you can imagine. We woke up the day after Thanksgiving with Christmas in our hearts and music playing through the house. We couldn’t wait to get out the door and on our way to the “tree pharmacy” as the girls called it. We spotted our tree right away, and the girls were just beside themselves seeing it get strapped to the top of the car. We love having a real tree, mess and all, it is totally worth it to have the experience (and smell) of the season.

The girls helped Brandon trim it and get it all set up, then Harper helped me do most of the lights and garland while the little ones napped. Once Eloise & Claire joined in on the festivities, we learned right away that by the end of the season, all of our ornaments will either end up in 1. the toilet 2. the toy box or 3. the fireplace.

There is really just nothing better than kids experiencing the magic of Christmas right before your eyes. Claire completely loses it every time she sees the tree light up, she starts speaking total jibberish and pointing at it with her tiny little finger. She also loves to pick up random objects from around the house and proudly place them in the tree. Christmas can stay forever around here, we are loving it more than ever.

Our Family Room

ย We finally finished the rest of our family room just in time to give it a total holiday makeover after Thanksgiving this week! The first thing we picked out in this room was the charcoal sofa & chair from Jonathan Louis furniture, we really wanted to go with the dark colors but knew we would have to keep everything else light and airy to balance it out. It’s so comfy and has been so durable with the kids! We layered two rugs from RugsUSA, added in a thrifted mirror and console table, and finally settled on a coffee table to finish off the space. We gave our fireplace a little makeover by painting the brick white, I almost loved it as it was before, but the salmon tones were just too… salmon. The final piece of the puzzle was adding our gallery wall!! We worked with the amazing folks at Framebridge and I can’t wait to share more about the process & some tips/tricks for putting one together yourself! We still need to hang curtains & change out the ceiling fan, and we have some built ins in the back corner that still need refinished. But for now, all I can think about is where to put the Christmas tree!
