Decking The Halls

As I mentioned in a recent post, we are all decked out for Christmas at the Zottola Zoo! Sadie and I spent a recent morning listening to Christmas music while hanging wreaths, stockings, and putting up decor.

Jimmy came home from work to our little surprise and Sadie was so excited to show him the little tree and stocking in her bedroom! It’s a memory I want to cherish forever 🙂

Here’s a look at all of our hall-decking, plus a vlog of the process.

Along with the decorations we had in storage, I also did some crafting!

I made a few wreaths for our bedroom doors and mantle, up-cycled a mini Christmas tree I found at Goodwill, and made a pom-pom garland (<– probably my favorite decoration, lol).

We didn’t put up a big tree because a small house + toddler + husky + crazy cat = chaos without a Christmas tree to mess around with. Can you imagine the craziness that would ensue if we did put one up, lol! Some day we will be brave enough 😉

Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! 2 Corinthians 9:15

When do you decorate for Christmas?

Do you have a favorite Christmas decoration?

  1. Awww, I absolutely love your decorations!! 🙂 We plan to hopefully buy our tree on Sunday, so I’ll probably switch out all the fall decor then. Another beautiful autumn is done… Now bring on all things Christmas!! 🙂
