it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

moccs c/o Freshly Picked
I couldn't resist sharing our Christmas decor this year knowing that we are in a rental and obviously won't be here forever. Because we have yet to buy a home, our Christmas decorations are pretty simple (but I can't wait to buy and craft more when we are finally settled in a home and I know exactly what space I'll have to decorate with!) Each Christmas with Mia just gets better and better- this year is no exception! Mia LOVES the decorations and she's always asking me to plug in the lights on the tree. She has one candy cane ornament that she is allowed to play with (which she always sticks on the same branch when she's done with it, ha!) and leaves everything else alone, such a good girl! Of course my favorite is the nativity scene I have set up on our entertainment center, the perfect reminder of why we celebrate CHRISTmas! There is something so peaceful and cozy about Christmas decorations and the lights! It's going to be a sad day when it's time to put everything away. We love this magical season!
Linking up with Courtney, Jenny & Beth.

Love your tree and your decor is so pretty! Smart to give her one ornament to play with, that way she's happy touching the tree. That picture is precious!! I post about my decor today, too. Great minds, ya think?!?! ;)

Is Mia obsessed with your nativity scene?! Liam loves playing with ours, and luckily we've only lost baby Jesus once!

Your tree is so gorgeous! I love that last picture of Mia in front of it! Does she do well with the ornaments? Mason was until he discovered that he could pull them off and then he pulls the ornament until it rips off the tree and I just cringe. lol

Such a beautiful tree. So sweet that Mia puts the candy cane back on the same branch...such a smart little girl.

That is a really good idea to give Mia one ornament to play with and tell her the rest is off limits. We told Elin she is not allowed to touch anything but we catch her all the time touching them just little.....so far she has been careful but I didn't put out her special baby's first ornaments that are dated just in case she would break them!

Nina Robinson said...

Cute decorating! We don't have a fireplace either so I really like your idea of hanging stockings below the television set. I think I'll steal your idea if you don't mind!

Love that last photo, so precious!! Your tree and decorations look great too! :-)

Janna Renee said...

Awww....That picture of her with the lights is beautiful! Great decor ;)

Courtney [Sweet Turtle Soup] said...

ha, that is awesome that she only plays with the one ornament! You have trained her well. Aria is pretty good but she likes to touch them and sometimes they fall off the branch that way. I'm with you though I can't wait to have my own home esp and hopefully a forever family home to decorate and collect things specifically for!

Annette said...

I love this last photo. Yes, Christmas decorations add spirit everywhere. Soon you'll be decorating a home instead of a rental. Nonetheless, it still looks like home, especially for your little girl! So sweet!
