@Regran_ed from @julie.thedesigntwins - 🎄Here’s my tree all decked out for Christmas! Every single thing on my tree this year is new! 🤷♀️😮That’s just amazing to me because I am such a recycling, reusing decorator! But because of this very practical side of me I have to say that I end up with very eclectic (some might say hodge podge) looks. So this year I said to myself Julie, it’s okay. Let yourself invest in everything you need to create the perfect tree and the perfect Christmas room. I bought ribbon and picks on my own. But then in answer to a prayer I have been blessed to partner with my favorite home decor company @krumpetshomedecor and they generously supplied all the ornaments, wooden beads, mantle garlands and other decor around the room! Watch my stories from yesterday. 🎄My step-by-step tree decorating videos are now in my highlights called “My Tree” 🎄We have a coupon code to save 10% on your entire order from Krumpets! Use THE DESIGN TWINS. If you know sweet and amazing Devanie @devanie.at.home this is her company.

So first off, I have some serious house envy with @mrsleeleem's home. 😍 And secondly, now I want to decorate for Christmas! Sorry Isaac. 🎄🎄
Today's family session was so much fun, and I loved that we did these pictures in their home while they decorated the Christmas tree. So sweet & special!
Y'all... I love this time of year! ❤️
There is now (accidentally) glitter EVERYWHERE but I’m calling it... “Christmas Zest” 😂🎄 I’ve been decorating all night and can’t get over how cute it’s looking. So excited to share! BTW - What are you weekend plans? Love hearing about your daily lives so let a girl know! 💓 Under $20 holiday pajamas and my $14 necklace (an Hermès dupe) are available here ➡️ http://liketk.it/2yinH #liketkit @liketoknow.it

Thanks for for the photo from our little customer who is just cannot leave the tree alone🤗 📷 @pipersienna
For the past few years @chef.boss.culinary & I have waffled over maintaining our traditions now that our boys are getting older; ok .. I have been tempted not to put the trees up at all for a few of them, down went his foot, up went the trees. I am ever so GRATEFUL.
We have placed importance on spending time together as opposed to gifts (although comfy new matching pjs every year is a must for the Chinese food eating, Christmas movie binge ) and our boys enjoy it, so much so that there was concern that Christmas Eve falls on a work night for both of them. It warms my heart to know that even if it was never something that we talked about, except for with eachother & now I'm announcing it to the internet 🤦🏻♀️, our sons feel the connection to their parents and want to spend time with us at 16 and 19 years old.
One of the best things that we've done over the last 3 years is permanently decorating our trees. These little guys are the last ones to have received the "Royal Treatment". It frees up more of our time so that we can spend it with more people that are important to us and decorate their houses instead (like my uncles house ... a few posts back)
What kind of traditions have you created for your families?
MERRY MERRY!! I can’t get enough of this holiday season. Give me all the holidaze! 🎄😍☺️ Pretty sure this was my nap-time activity right here today. 😅
Last year I didn’t put up a tree. We used the kids’ tree and left it at that. Between broken arms, reconstructive knee surgery, and lots of sickness, I just didn’t feel in the holiday spirit. This year, I am so SO thankful for a new season and blessings. There are highs of the high and lows of the low. This is life. In every season, there’s something to be grateful for. Today, I thankful for my family and celebrating the true meaning of Christmas with them. .
Our Young Living Advent calendar arrived!!
I *may* have peeked in these Advent Calendar drawers when the girls weren’t looking (shhhhh they don’t know). 🙈
It is AMAZING! We are going to have so much fun opening each day. 🎄
