We have been in our new home now about 3 1/2 weeks. We just
love adore being here. It has been an additional treasure to move some boxes out of the way and make room for a few, simple Christmas decorations this year. With a newborn and a new house, I am reaching for the simple this year. So simple, in fact, that I have hardly done much at all. Steven has done most of the Christmas preparations this year in our new home, while I have attended to the gift shopping online from the comfort of home.
Because of Steven, our house looks so festive:

This year we’ve slowed down. Buying mostly, and not creating much. A different change of what we normally do each year, that has been interestingly refreshing. These days I’m just playing with and snuggling my two precious little men that I am oh, so thankful for this Christmas season (and my wonderful husband)!
