Ava's First Christmas Tree

 Its Ava's first Christmas and even though I'm pretty positive she won't remember a thing from this year, it just makes Christmas so much more special being able to share all of the Christmas joy with her!  

Ava was mesmerized by her first Christmas tree!
and of course wanted to touch everything on the tree! 
If you follow the Honeybee on FB or Twitter you've seen that we put our tree up last weekend! I still have a few more decorations for the house I hope to put up later this week!
I've been eyeing this bright red wreath from Target for awhile now and  finally decided we NEEDED it for our Mantel. Our stockings are hung and were waiting for Ava's...her's is being specially made by her Memaw!  

How about you ladies...Do you have all your Christmas decor up already?! I always try to put it up right after Thanksgiving so we can enjoy them as long as possible!

  5. I love love love the pictures you took of Ava with the tree - it makes me so excited to one day have a baby of my own and to be able to share that feeling!

    Our outside lights and wreath have been up for 2 weeks now but we plan on finishing all the indoor decor this weekend - we have 2 trees to put up and I hope to come up with some sort of mantle decor so your picture is a great inspiration!

  8. Your tree is so beautiful and classy? Did you go with a fresh tree or an artificial one? I'm torn because my family has always gotten fresh trees, but I'm worried about my LO eating trying to eat pine needles, and artificial trees always look perfect. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
