’tis the season.

We decked the halls and are making spirits bright around here! There’s just something magical about the warm glow of Christmas lights around you at night. We haven’t unplugged them once yet and I love it. The only downside to our holiday decorations is that it’s completely empty beneath the tree. It’s hard to fill it with pretty packages when my shopping doesn’t get done until the last minute… (just another good reason to get that shopping done sooner.) I’m already so excited for next Christmas with a little girly in the house! The tree is sure to have more gifts than ever underneath it..

I love how Lucy is just taking a little snooze on the chair in the first photo. 🙂


If you are wondering, the delicious-looking drink is Nutella Hot Chocolate (Nutella mixed with skim milk) topped with homemade marshmallow chunks and a candy cane for a hint of peppermint flavor — amazing (besides scalding my tongue with the first sip).

And, a glimpse of our Christmas card this year! (photo taken in Baby Koch’s room with a self timer.) 🙂


Merry Christmas, everyone!!

  1. so fun to see all the decorations & how in the world did you get Lucy to have her head in the exact spot (or is it the wonder of Photoshop)?


    • Thanks, Mom! Photoshop is a magical tool… The antlers were drawn on with a “chalkboard brush” after-the-fact, but the rest of it is real, hand drawn by me on the chalkboard! 🙂

  2. Your house looks amazing, Sista! So cozy and homey and sparkly 🙂 Let’s have nutella hot chocolate on our next sister night… it sounds delish! xoxo!
