decorating for christmas, and a video!

hanna1

hooray! it’s time for christmas!!

we started the holiday season off by keeping to our holiday family traditions!  we decorated our christmas tree the other week and made a little video out of it (see a throwback to josh’s and my first christmas tree decorating video HERE, and other christmas videos from the past few years HERE and HERE.)

we also continued with the tradition of pulling out our festive family christmas jammies! my mom sent us matching pajamas from hanna andersson a few years ago (we did the matching thing in my home growing up!), and we haven’t been able to let them go just yet. we actually have continued to add to them each year since. haha! i have a feeling it’ll remain a staple in davis family traditions around the holidays for many years to come! so we were really excited when hanna andersson asked to partner this year for the holiday, as we have loved and worn the brand for years! you can see them in our video here which we made with the help of our friend jenner brown.

our christmas tree currently is only decorated from the top to half way down.  because, hi conrad. lol. it’s a funny thing though how much it’s growing on me. i quite like it! i know i said this in my thanksgiving day post, but it’s a nice reminder every time i walk by about what a fun chapter of life this is, and also, how thankful i am to get to be a mom. it’s the best.

i also love our collection of mismatched ornaments! a lot of them are from when josh and i were little (thanks moms!). someone told me a few years ago that multi colored lights are actually really tacky and white lights are where it’s at. i was like, “huh?!” for some reason i think about that every time we string the lights. i don’t know who decided that, but i beg to differ. i love multi colored christmas lights! let’s start this holiday off with some colorful lights, some shake shack hot cocoa every single chance we can get and also a ton of dance parties in our christmas jammies, because we only live once, and also, CHRISTMAS!…

    So cute!! I think there is nothing wrong with the coloured lights! Very festive and pretty…I admire Christmas trees that are unique and display ornaments that represent family, tradition and memories. Also… love the dancing!!

    My mom always decorated our tree with colorful lights, too, because she knew my siblings and I thought it was more fun than white ones. She’s such a good mom and so are you! Do what you love!!!

  27. Kayla

    I have been using colored Xmas tree lights since I was a little girl and I LOVE THEM. They feel like Xmas! Everyone else in my family does the “elegant” white lights but let me tell you the bright colored lights are where it’s at! They are so much more spirited! Stay strong :)

  30. Cait

    I grew up with colored lights and LOVE them! So festive! We went with white lights for our own tree for now, but every time I see colored lights it makes me second guess! I adore the look of both in such different ways.

    i don’t know how many times i’ve seen the video already; i’m sick with an illness that is lasting for way too long and this week i’m just…not feeling well and sad and down, but this video makes my heart melt every time. thank you, thank you for making it and sharing!

  32. This video is so stinkin’ cute!

  33. Your family page continually warms my heart. What a swell and sweet video you will cherish forever!
