Christmas in January!

Prepare yourself for the lamest post of all time.

I'm going to be posting pictures of our house all decorated for Christmas.  I know.  It's January the freaking 10th.  And believe it or not, I took all of this down last Friday.  But better late than never, right?  Just give me a pass people...38 weeks remember? 

Most of my decor focuses on the family room.  It's where we spend the majority of our time so it makes sense for it to the be happiest and jolliest place in the house.




Evidence that my hospital bag is indeed packed...

 I'm a real tree kind of girl.  Always have been, always will be.  Our ceilings in this room are lower than in our last house so our tree had to be downsized (much to my dismay) but I think this one was pretty perfect.  Super full, branches held up really well, and it smelled heavenly!

And as you may recall, we had our whole family up this year for the holidays.  It was my first chance to play hostess and use our new dining room table!  And of course our wedding china from 3 years ago.  Ha!

I didn't take any pictures of the table all set, or all of the sweet goodies I made...but trust me, it was insane.  I'm definitely going to cut back next year.  For a pregnant lady with gestational diabetes, it was pretty much my personal hell.

But I did have a chance to snap some pics of these cute little cake balls my sister brought.  How adorable are they??

Overall, we had a pretty fantastic Christmas.  I'm super sad to see it come to an my house looks entirely too empty and boring after all of the decorations have come down.  But I'm pretty sure we'll have our hands full with excitement all over again very, very soon.

Everything looks super cute! I think the cake balls are too cue to eat, though I am sure they tasted heavenly!

OK, when I first saw the title of your blog post, I was all "Wait a minute, did she have the baby?!" because, that would be Christmas in January as far as I'm concerned. Ha.

it's kind of nice seeing Christmas stuff now so don't think you're lame! I would have left my stuff up a little longer but my 2yr old had finally decided he'd had enough of the "no touching" rule and was helping himself to candy canes & ornaments! ha!

btw I can't believe you are still pregnant! I thought Christmas in January meant you were showing us pics of your baby!!!! :)
