It’s a Meaningful & EXHAUSTING Christmas

Sorry for the late update (again). I’ve been so exhausted lately. Little Miss Holly decided not to sleep through the night anymore, so I’m sort of back to the just-had-a-baby zombie days.

Silly me, I’d thought this would be THE most exciting Christmas ever. And don’t get me wrong, it is, I just don’t feel it a lot of the time (when I wish I could be sleeping). But despite it all, our¬†Christmas tree finally did get complete. Here are some of my favorite ornaments:

The one we got last year to celebrate the new house, our wedding picture one & the cross (both gifts) and a random but lovely tea pot

But of course :)

The mixer one from a baking phase; Melissa’s “big sister” one from while I was pregnant with Andrew

Love my “Fa-la-la-la Latte” :) – and handmade dog by talented sis-in-law

I remember our first Christmas, of how obsessed I was on matching fancy ornaments. A good friend was even nice enough to say it looked like a professionally decorated tree, and I beamed. Exactly the look I was going for. Which couldn’t be more different than this time.

The more kids we had, the more I’ve come to appreciate the quirky-tree look. Not overly balanced or polished, but definitely meaningful. Much like our lives.

Christmas Eve in front of in-laws much better looking tree (notice Holly’s adorable about-to-cry face :)

Stay tuned for more pictures of Christmas Eve/Day! I’m too tired to go on.
