it's the most wonderful time of the year.

December 2, 2012











We have started some pretty special traditions in our home and I get so excited for this season to roll around again. Despite the fact that Christmas brings inevitable home sickness for a Canadian living far away from the snow, I think it is a holiday we can create and mold into our own. Anywhere we may roam.

On the 30th of November the Christmas fairies come and put up our tree (a fake this year as the massive bump I am wearing wouldn’t agree to a two hour round trip to get a real beauty).

The next morning little miss awoke to a sparkling tree and decorated with us while listening to Micheal Buble crooning Christmas classics {at no other time of the year does this man enter my home…}

We sipped lattes from Christmas mugs, set a place at the breakfast table for dear santa, and ooed and ahhed over our new solar lights.












































Let the magic begin folks.

  2. Would you believe I was listening to Michael Buble tonight too. He sings Christmas carols so well! I love this time too. I hope homesickness doesn't hurt too much for you this year... Sweet photos of a special occasion. xx

  5. I love the way you introduced the tree - I still haven't decided whether to have the tree decorated all of December, or to have the angels come decorate it on Christmas Eve... I will have to decide soon, seeing as we are in December already! Haha! I've been so slack this year, as Everly still doesn't really 'get' the whole Christmas thing. Piper looks so grown up in those photos, I love her hair!

    1. december came at us quickly this year! i toyed with the idea of having an eve surprise but the sappy season lover in me trumped with wanting the tree up all month. last year piper was too busy pulling things off the tree to have a clue what was going on anyways. next year you can start the 'real' traditions:)

      p.s. she does look so grown up-can't even imagine what she will look like when a tiny newborn joins us, my baby is a big girl!

  7. It's so much fun creating new traditions, ones that you've developed just with your family:) And hasn't your little girl grown, she looks so sweet putting on the decorations very carefully. I do love Christmas lights too, the way they twinkle at night they are quite magical. xx
