ho-ho-holiday decor!

I made a huge compromise this year and we got a fake Christmas tree, 
Charlie has wanted this from the beginning,
 let's face it- he does all the work for maintaining the tree and all I do is enjoy it.

The downside to a fake tree is the weird bottom that is a dead giveaway that it is fake, 
initially I added a box around the bottom but but was not completely satisfied

When we went to bed, I had an idea to use an old dog cone to create the base of the tree!

It's not perfect but it will do!

I will say that having a tree that comes with lights is a huge benefit!
Still put some lights on the banister

More time to decorate the rest of the house!
I really love our fireplace mantle this year!

Added another little house from the Goodwill! 

 There won't be any presents under our tree this year, 
instead we agreed to get a new carpet for the dining room!
We ordered it on Black Friday and it arrived by SUNDAY! 

Arnold is a fan!

I meant to take a before photo but I was so excited to get the new carpet 
that I just started cleaning and putting it down...
but I do have this pic of Maggie on the carpet that gives you an idea:

In other holiday celebrations, 
I have been loving my advent calendar from Trader Joe's!
This one is so cute- "While the elves are away, the toys will play!"

I am obsessed with this @julievos post 🔛 Instagram
SO CUTE & festive!

Things are getting merry around here!
