A Holly Jolly Holiday in The Woodlands

 Just a little holiday spirit sprinkled around the Haupt family house.  Since we are in a rental and not really sure how long we will stay, it's been just a tiny bit awkward for us.  We aren't used to holding back and not being able to do whatever we want to do to our home.  We did our best to make it feel cozy!

 I have to admit, I am jealous of all the snow falling up north and if you know me, you know how much I LOVE a beautiful snowfall!   It is a strange feeling to walk outside in 65 degree weather a week before Christmas, but it is very beautiful here.  It really looks more like fall outside right now and it's very nice opening the windows, so there are positives and negatives no matter where you go!

We just added some snowflakes of our own....and no shoveling!

 A plus to owning a direct to garment printer....easily print images and whip up a few holiday pillows!!
 Kurt and I have never had a fresh tree in the 21 years we have been married.  Mostly because we have always had a cat and knew they would be obnoxious with it!  Now we just have the 2 pups, so we thought it would be safe to give the real tree a try.
Because of where we are now, the woodland Christmas theme seemed more appropriate and something new and fun.  Kayla helped me make homemade ornaments, collect pinecones outside and add a few furry woodland animals in the tree.
And then we had a naughty helper that decided she couldn't resist tearing apart the baby fox on the tree!!!
Honestly, I couldn't even be mad at Penny Lane because she looked so sorry

Thanks so much Kim! I'm bummed that we are so far away because I have a feeling we would be hanging at shows together since our girls are all grown up!! Have a wonderful holiday
