It's not even December yet and already our holiday festivities are in full swing.
We cut down our Christmas tree, took obligatory 34 weeks pregnant photos (please disregard the look of exhaustion and no makeup on my face), and decorated every square inch of our house.
It has been the most fun holiday season that I can remember because Phoebe is super into it this year. I couldn't even count the number of times that Phoebe "ooooo'ed" and "aaaahhhhh'ed" and said "That is so so pretty/sparkly" while we got out our decorations. And she tries her darndest to hug and kiss the Christmas tree about 20 times every day. "I LOVE my Christmas tree!"
We've also been doing some holiday crafting. I have to keep Phoebe's projects a secret for right now since they're gifts for the family, but this is a little something that I whipped up for my Modern Quilt Guild's ornament swap that took place at tonight's meeting.
I can't take credit for the adorable pattern - I spotted it on Pinterest (of course!) a couple weeks ago. You can find the full tutorial and printable pattern here.
Phoebe was pretty bummed when I had to wrap this one up to give away, so I think I'll be making a couple more of these sweet little cottages to grace our Christmas tree!
