dining room: Christmas

As mentioned in my last Christmas decor feature (you can see it here!), we kept things pretty simple this year. Lots of greenery, some candles and fruit – that’s pretty much it. With each passing day, I grow to appreciate simplicity more and more. There is so much going on in our everyday life; I love having our home be a place of peace.

Ha. I wrote that and the literally laughed out loud. There isn’t a whole lot of peace these days with a 2.5 year old and 3 month old. They are wild, our hands – and hearts – are full, and the house is usually a disaster zone of toys and laundry, crumbs and cups. BUT, the sentiment rings true – with less, we have so much more. Regardless of the mess and the crazy, our home IS a cozy place of rest for us, and that’s so important.

See that sweet nativity on the top of the hutch? My grandparents made it and it is my most cherished piece of Christmas decor. I love that its just wooden silhouettes – nothing fancy, nothing big. It’s perfect.

It’s so crazy that we have two kiddos to celebrate the season with this year! I still can’t quite wrap my head around it. Speaking of wrap, I’d better get their gifts wrapped. First, I’d better actually get them gifts. Sheesh. I’m the worst.
