Holiday: Our Favorite Christmas Board Books

Tuesday, November 26, 2019

Adding new holiday books to our collection is one of our favorite holiday traditions. Even Avery loves looking back on some of the board books we bought for her first Christmas. Isla is at a stage where she LOVES books, she will make a big, tall pile of books and will sit and look at each one, it's one of our favorite things to do together. Emmy and Avery are little book worms too, which makes my former reading teacher heart so very happy, Avery loves to act like the teacher and will read some of her favorites to her sisters. Spending time reading together throughout the day and before bed is so important to our family and I love that I can see the love for books and reading in the girls already!

Below are a few of our favorite Christmas board books, this year we added Where's Santa Claus? and it's quickly becoming a family favorite! I grew up loving our old copy of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, what was your favorite holiday book as a child? 

Photo Journal: Halloween 2019

Halloween 2019- one for the record books, fresh fallen snow had us feeling like it was Christmas in October! I swear, the older the girls get, the sweeter the holidays feel, we had a few last minute costume changes (thank goodness for dress-up clothes), but everyone looked cute as can be, complete with fake hair and snow gear. Thankfully the snow didn't stop us from carving the biggest pumpkin we could find in the patch, trick or treating with our best buddies and making trades for all our favorite candy. Now the question is, how long until the girls find out Scott & I keep eating their candy once they go to bed... 

Holiday: Adding Touches of Pink

Sunday, November 10, 2019

It's no surprise we are a big fan of PINK over here and with all of the blush Christmas decor I've been seeing, we may just have to jump in on the pink trend this year! I love keeping our regular home decor and other holiday decor neutral, that way we can add in touches of different colors in inexpensive ways from year to year. It doesn't cost a lot of money to swap out a few throw pillows or even a new blanket to give your holiday decor a little refresh. So, what do you think? Are you on board with the pink trend, or are you sticking to the classic red and green?

1: Fair Isle Pillow- I love the pom pom corners and the textured dots too, the color pallet is just perfect and this pillow could even stay out throughout the winter!
2: Velvet Pillow- I originally bought this pillow for Avery's room, but it looked so perfect in our living room, it gave me the touch of pink idea!
3: Happy Holiyay- I grabbed this pillow for Avery's room, I think the bright color tassels will look adorable on her bed and add a little fun and festive touch. 
4: Merry Everything- I love this pillow next to the square pink velvet pillow, and it even has a little red and green in it, which will look great with your classic decor too!
5: Ballet Bunny Ornaments (Tutu Option/ Glasses Option)- How adorable are these little cuties! I love the velvet ornament tie and think they would be an adorable gift topper. 
6: Natural Nutcracker- Adding in a little natural wood touches mixes perfectly with the pink and this cute guy comes in a snowman and a mouse version too!
7: Cup of Cheer Towel- This little tea towel would make the best grab bag gift, pair it with one of the cute mugs or a Starbucks gift card. 
8: Tassel Garland- I can't get over all the gorgeous garland options this year, this one would look so pretty mixed in with a faux greenery garland, or strung throughout your tree. 
9: Christmas Mugs (Classic Car / Stocking)- Who else can't get enough holiday mugs!? 
10: Bottle Brush Trees (Dark Rose Gold / Set of 3/ Light Pink)- Bottle brushes can be found ALL over, but I especially like the pink options, such an easy way to add a little touch of pink!
11: Cozy Blanket- I love rolling up and using throw blankets as part of our decor, it's such an easy and functional way to add your accent color!
