Gone in a Flash aka Christmas 2011

Did I say gone in a flash? Yeah, right. More like "never thought it'd end."

Don't get me wrong our first Christmas turned out pretty good. But, as we finished round 3 of Christmas this morning when the in-laws finally went back to TN I could have jumped with joy.  

I've shown you our Santa stash, our christmas wreath and even a recipe perfect for sharing with the family. So that should be it, right? Wrong. I have photos galore that you need to see. Yes, need to. 


You see those stockings, I made them! AH! I really did! Along with the help of my Grandmother, I got this ready for us just in time for the big day. I was inspired by some stockings I found on Etsy. Yeah, they were going to cost me $80, these cost $30 plus an afternoon with my Grandmother. I'd say these were a major win!

And then there are some of the little details of Christmas...


But hands down the best part of this Christmas was taking a step back and enjoying my little family. I am so blessed to have a loving husband and a little dude who is the light of our lives. 



I can't wait for next Christmas when he is running around as an almost 2-year-old. For now, though, I am so glad all the Christmas stuff is in the attic!

    I'm glad Christmas is getting picked up around here too. It always gives me the extra urge to get things clean and in their places.
