I've spent the last few Christmas's at my mom's house, which is about 45 minutes away. I didn't grow up in this house, so it doesn't really feel like "home." Mom and my step-dad have lived here for a while, so it's slowly starting to feel like my home since they live there. I actually live in the house I spent a lot of my childhood in, but without my parents here, it also doesn't feel like home. It's so strange! But anyway the wood stove at mom's makes it super cozy in the winter. Even though there are several spare bedrooms, I like to sleep on the couch so I can be nice and toasty all night. Doesn't it look so warm and inviting?!
Pretty morning light. Mom and I like to enjoy a cup of coffee together in the morning.
This is the baby Jesus ornament. He is ALWAYS in the center of the tree.
And here's my little bed. I love curling up there and watching Elf. I usually watch it every night that I'm there, although I never make it much past where Zooey Deschanel is singing in the shower.
I apologize for being SO SO SO late on my Christmas posts. Although, I actually like going back through these pictures now and reliving a little bit of the fun and coziness :) My next post will be about some of the wonderful gifts that people gave me. I got some really special things from some wonderful family and friends.
