Our Christmas Festivities 2016 {Behind the Scenes}

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! It’s hard to believe another one has come and gone. All that work decorating, shopping, wrapping and boom, it’s over.

As I sit and have my coffee this morning and reflect on how lucky we are, I am kind of sad that the holiday is over.

Anyone else ever feel like this after Christmas?

Oh and the fact that we have seven trees and a crazy amount of decor to take down might have something to do with that!-ha.

Every year, all the kids pile in my son’s bedroom, we read a Christmas Story and then they go to sleep and wait for Santa.

We will be popping in a little bit this week (and later today with our favorites from the 1/2 yearly Nordstrom Sale) with a couple posts but for the most part, we are taking this week off and will be back in 2017!

See you soon!

    WOW! Everyone is going to Disney?? The ultimate in having fun. The kids really look excited, even your dad. The salmon looks delicious, even though it is not cooked a good piece of fish can be detected in any state. I want all of you to enjoy the rest of the holiday season. Don’t fret, Jessica, with a group that size give them all a box and a room and it will be done in no time at all. You just relax and orchestrate with a cup of coffee or hot cocoa, lol. To me the season doesn’t end until the day after New Year’s Day. Hugs to all and TFS.

  2. Lovely family!
    Where are the cardinals on your tree from?
    By the way, I found your plaid bedding at HomeGoods, Yay!

    1. Thank you! The cardinals are from Pottery Barn and wow that is great you found the bedding! So many readers have emailed me b/c they can’t find it anywhere!!
