Month: November 2012

For years I have used my own homemade garland and greenery cut from nearby woods and occasionally picked up some things from Lowe’s. Well, last year as our photo shoot approached and my greenery was started to dry out (the shoot wasn’t until mid January) I decided to splurge and order some fresh new greenery.

My lovely little Lillie informed me as we started decorating a little while ago that she was pretty sure Christmas was supposed to be red and green, not all white. Although she is not perfect =), I have to say she said it in the sweetest little voice and seemed somewhat concerned – as if possibly I didn’t know this fact.

Last winter we did a little hot cocoa station and it turned out to be such a hit with our family that we did it again this year. I love it because it’s decorative but we also use it regularly too and the girls think it’s so much fun!  This year we had to move our mirrored chest out of the living room to make room for our tree.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a delicious meal with the team in Williamsburg (they did have the make your own cupcake station!) and then about an hour after eating began the journey to Winston-Salem for our game against Wake Forest. I think Lillie and Lola are going to grow up thinking Thanksgiving is some kind of basketball holiday.
