Cozy little Christmas.

JD and I set up our baby 3 ft Christmas tree on Monday for family night. In his family, there's a tradition that everyone sleeps in the living room together on the night they set up the tree. When we visited his fam last weekend, I walked into a big front room of blankets, mattresses, and pillows. Confused, I asked what was going on and then realized they'd put up all the red & green decor the night before. Silly me, how could I forget?

Staying true to tradition, JD and I lugged our mattress into our living room the night before last. We toasted to a happy season with sparkling cider and fell asleep snuggled up tight below the twinkling lights in our window and Christmas tree.

In my family, we always get an ornament on Christmas Eve and I now have quite the collection. Last year, my mom packed all my treasures up and sent them to me so I'd have them this year. It was fun to combine two of our favorite family traditions and we're sure looking forward to our cozy little Christmas.

(Also, we've been too lazy to put the house back in order and I've quite enjoyed the bed in the living room!)
