Deck The Halls!

 ^^Ornaments we've been giving as Relief Society Christmas gift.  Walk with Christ.  What is your gift to him this year?

I usually procrastinate everything about Christmas --> buying presents, wrapping presents, decorating, taking time to specifically study about the Savior, service to others, etc. This year Ava is going to bed early which has given me lots of free time in the evenings to do these things and I love it!  Now I'm going to go look at those Pinterest tutorials on bokeh christmas light photography because I obviously stink at it.

Wreath - (see our first:HERE) We used extra branches from our Christmas tree and fun fillers I had from JoAnnsThe star in the middle is made of jingle bells and I found it at an antique shop in Pennsylvania when I was home!
Nativity - I couldn't find our nativity set online for the life of me.  My mom sent it to me for Christmas the first year we were married.  It's made by Blossom Bucket.  I love it because it is nicer than the ones made for kids but it's still very durable and Ava can play with it (occasionally) without ruining anything.  And the pieces store nicely. 

Stockings - Made from a roommate's tutorial the first year we were married.  I just made Ava's this week using the same but hers is made from flannel material. And I made hers bigger because I didn't account for seam allowances very well when I cut ours out the first year. Pin It


  1. I love the wreath. That bell star is really pretty!

  2. P.S. Turn your lens to manual focus and turn the focus wheel until you're satisfied with the bokeh.

    1. Thanks!! I had no idea it was that easy :)

  3. Love love love your decorations!!! :)
