Christmas Tour of Homes Link-Up!

Happy Friday! I’m linking up with Kelly from Kelly’s Korner for a Christmas Tour of Homes, Instagram style!  Here’s a quick glimpse around our house:)

Each year, we go to a local Christmas tree farm to pick out a real tree.  As mentioned in this post, I grew up on a Christmas tree farm, so we always had real trees.  My husband, on the other hand, would prefer to have an artificial tree.  So far, I’ve won the battle:) Here’s Will in the process of helping mommy and Harper decorate the tree.

Miss Harper loved pointing out the pink and purple ornaments, her favorite colors!

The view of our tree from outside. BTW, after getting our tree home, we realized it kind of looks like a Charlie Brown Christmas tree.  Don’t look too closely at it, ha!

I bought Will and Harper’s personalized stockings from Pottery Barn Kids.

As well as the tree skirt.

On our mantle, I put up some berry garland and a few red candle holders to make it more festive.

Some Christmas tea towels in the kitchen.

And some wonderful smelling dish soap and hand soap from Method, one of our favorite brands.  I love all of the special edition holiday scents!

I need to slowly add to our small collection of Christmas books.  These three are in Will’s room.

And these are in Harper’s room. My kiddos love the “That’s not my…” books! I can’t tell you how many they have!

One of our traditions is to purchase an ornament for Will and Harper each year.  I love Lisa Leonard Designs ornaments and have gotten our yearly ornaments from her since Will was born.  These are last year’s ornaments, which have their names and year on the back.  Her ornaments are a little more expensive than other ornaments, but I always use a coupon code and she typically has a wonderful deal on ornaments each July.  The quality is great, too!

The wreath on the front door, made by my dad.

And a poinsettia.

20131210-133409.jpgI will probably put up a few more Christmas decorations throughout the house, but I like to keep it simple yet fun!  Thanks for stopping by:)
