A Toddler Friendly Christmas - Tree Reveal!

Friday, November 29, 2013

We are still in my hometown visiting my parents for Thanksgiving.... Overnight stays with a toddler are, well interesting to say the least.  Sleep is sketchy and mixing up routines is tough. But with Thanksgiving a thing of the past, it is officially the Christmas season. 
Since we stay with my parents over Thanksgiving, this past week I was a busy elf finishing up my homemade ornaments and decking our halls. I am very proud to announce that the Haegg tree has been up and decorated for almost a full week and Roman still has not managed to pull it down! 

Roman is in absolute love with touching the branches and with pulling off the bottom layer of origami cranes. 

All the decorations and ornaments are homemade. You can find my tutorials for the paper garlands HERE and HERE, the glitter letters HERE and the origami cranes and stars HERE
I am so excited and relieved that the tree is up. I've been determined to get everything done early so we can enjoy all kinds of fun activities this December. I will follow up with more pictures of our decorations once I get them finished and up, hopefully later this week!
I am still brainstorming a different way to display all of our special, delicate glass ornaments. More on this to come later. 
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We are heading home tomorrow morning... I miss my bed and cat and toddler that actually sleeps. Enjoy your leftovers!
