Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from the White Family!

We took this photo before Sullivan joined our family. He'll be in our Christmas photo next year! We had many outtakes before we were able to successfully use the self timer, position ourselves, and get Monkey looking at the camera all at the same time. Here's some of our Christmas decor from this holiday season:


Our winter weath on our front door.

Our Christmas tree. I bought this tree last year on clearance from Wal Mart. It's a pre-lit tree. We added some red bulbs, ornaments that we've received as gifts, and hand painted ornaments that we usually make each year around Christmas. My mom made matching tree skirts for her and my grandma. When my grandma died, I got her tree skirt which rests beautifully under our tree. We can't have a real tree because Monkey will likely chew on stray branches as she often does with our trees and pine cones in the back yard.
The angel on top has a funny story. I went shopping with my mom last year to find a Christmas tree. I swore Tim said he wanted an angel for the top. I found this one at Hobby Lobby. I really liked it because it was red, classy, and ornate without being overdone. I took it home excitedly for him to see. He said, "Oh an angel. That's nice." That's nice? I found the perfect angel for the top of our tree, what do you mean that's nice? "Well, it's nice, but why did you buy an angel?" Because you said you wanted one. "Actually no... I wanted a star." Hahaha Now we enjoy the angel and laugh. It does look nice though!

Our table and pine scented candle. I love festive tablecloths! I could do without the candle, but Tim really likes it.

A stocking for Tim, Monkey, Sullivan, and me. These are ledge hangers on our window downstairs.

The White house lit up at night! We need to add something in the two bedroom windows upstairs. I received two wreaths this year as gifts (thanks Susie and Angie!) that I will put up there next year.
