We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend filled with family, food, and tons of great memories.  The halls are decked and we are ready to kick off this holiday season.

One of the ways that I love to incorporate family photos into my holiday decorating, is to create "photo" ornaments that don't break the bank. I simply print out various family photos on photo paper and then use a hole punch and some ribbon to add them to the tree. This turned out to be a very toddler friendly way to decorate our tree this year.

Another tradition I started after we got married, was to save every holiday card and turn it into an ornament as well. We spend so much time creating the perfect holiday card every year, I love getting the chance to display it year after year.

Here is a sneak peek of our tree and decor this year. :-) We got a "Concolor Fir" tree this year and it smells like oranges and has super soft needles.

Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend an upcoming season of warm moments and cherished memories.
