Oh, Christmas Tree!






Yesterday we spent the morning decorating our first tree as a family of 3.  Or 5/6 including the mutts… I, personally, prefer real trees over faux, mostly because of the amazing smell they bring to the household, but the falling needles are having me second guess this rationalization.

B loves looking at the lights and touching the ornaments.  He tried really hard to open one of the presents under the tree, but was unsuccessful ha ha ha.  As I was decorating, I had the Christmas music blasting over the speakers and B could not stop laughing at my crazy dancing!  I think he is going to love Christmas as much as I do ;).  We can’t wait for this weekend, when Daddy can join us in finishing the final touches on the decorations!  It’s going to be a holly, jolly Christmas!

Just wanted to share a few pictures (sorry they aren’t very clear since they are from my phone) of the nursery before Baby Dietrich gets here.  I call my theme “Bohemian Safari Chic” because I wanted something gender neutral (obviously), but still my style.  Husband did all of the hanging of art & curtains on the windows.  He is just so good at that! ;)  The only thing I do not have at this time is my wall mounted book shelf that was supposed to be here last week, but I have just been informed it will not be here until mid-May.  Booooooo!!!  I also do not have very many baby clothes yet… I figured I have a whole lifetime to buy lots of adorable outfits.  I imagine it will be like: one cute outfit for baby, one cute outfit for mommy ;).  Anyway, this is now my favorite room in the house.  I go in there all the time just to sit in the rocking chair and stare at all the things Baby D will soon be using on a regular basis.  It’s just the sweetest little room… now all we need is a Baby!  Hurry up little one, we are all waiting!
