I thought I would give you a little glimpse into our holiday decorations and our Christmas cards for this year. It was a little tough to get motivated to decorate with a brand new baby at home, but I was excited to do it at the same time in our new house. This is our first Christmas in the new house and it was fun to try and figure out where everything should go. My mom recently came up to Starkville and brought a lot of her decorations and my sister and I took turns choosing the items that she no longer had room for. So I had lots of new things.
Here is our Christmas card created and designed by the one and only J Press Designs. We had our photo session in the fall and my plan was to get our Christmas cards out super super early BEFORE Walker came to avoid the hairy situation of him not being present in the picture. So I had Susan print them very early and addressed, stuffed and stamped my envelopes way before Thanksgiving. I was on the ball. And then, Walker came. So I quickly got on another website and used a precious picture the hospital photographer actually took and ordered Walker's birth announcements. I then opened up every single card and stuffed them with the announcement too and resealed them all. It all worked out in the end!

Now for the decorations!
