christmas cheer.

merry christmas august field readers!  we've been busy decking the halls, celebrating, and preparing our hearts during this advent season.

it's december and we still don't have any snow.  this mild weather did give me plenty of time to put up our outdoor decorations.  and we actually put two whole strands of lights up outside!  i will admit, it is pretty at night, but really, the only way that will happen again is if we have mild weather.

so welcome......come on in! 

do you follow me on instagram??? (see sidebar for link) -------------->  i posted about by dumpster diving at lowes to turn out these front urns!  

i post almost daily on instagram so come join me :)

and my mom let me use some of her ginormous ornaments to give it some color.  

the sunroom received cheery and bright colors this year!  this is where we have Bible time in the mornings and the kids have their cute little tree up in here.

for a fun daily countdown to christmas i purchased the lego calendar for the first time.  i scored it on amazon earlier in the year when it was one of their daily lightning deals.

dubs got to open the first day.  its so fun! :)

for our advent calendar we're doing the jesse tree for the third year.  usually as family devotions before bed.  the branches hold each day's picture.

the music room is FILLED with christmas MUSIC this time of year and i LOVE it!  the three big kids are continuing on in lessons and let me tell you that the years of simple chords and single-note-plunking is soooooo worth it.

i've got gorgeous melodies and anthems filling our home.

 and finally.....the family room!  i've waited a whole year to put this sign up!!

its from tara at between you and me  and i LOVE it!  actually there are about 5 other ones i really love too.

shimmery tree trio.  i've always loved all things 'sparkly'.  so these cute little trees from target (last year) fit the bill.

i'll leave you with a few night time pictures.  i really like the house at night with all the trees lit up and yummy candles going.  its definitely a most wonderful time of the year!!


  1. Absolutely beautiful!!!! Merry Christmas!!!!

  2. I'm impressed with your lovely, what wonderful trash ya'll have in your dumpsters! :)

    Your house looks amazing! Festive and joyful!

    Thanks for the tour! Can I ask where you bought that felt Merry Christmas banner? Love it!

    I also love the industrial table with wood top that you have next to your white couch. Where did you purchase that?

    I have white couches for years but, haven't been able to figure out what type sofa tables. Would be so nice to have something to place a lamp on or a cup of coffee!

    Thanks! ~ Ali
