Five on Friday : Christmas Instagram Edition

Today for my Five on Friday, I am recapping a few Christmas instagrams from the week.  If you don't follow along, be sure to share in on my obsession @homeofmalones!

We decorated the tree this week and I'm in love... This photo really doesn't even do it justice.  I will definitely take some pictures of it with my real camera soon and share some of the details with yall.  My gal Courtney at Pizzaz helped my dreams become a reality!! 

It's amazing how happy this little project makes me.  I've always been obsessed with pictures and Christmas cards and I was so happy to find this simple idea to display your cards from previous years.    You can download the free printable here!  It's not too late to start...

I was seriously so worried about Brody this year around the tree.  I thought it was going to be disastrous all month long while the tree was up.  I expected him to be pushing, pulling, grabbing, breaking and destroying the tree; but to my delight, it hasn't been that way at ALL!!! For the most part, he's kind of uninterested; but the few times he has touched it, he's kind of listened to me and quit!  It's a miracle :)

I love the way our stairwell decor turned out this year and I can't wait to share it with all of you.  Here's a glimpse of it...

I was excited to add a few Christmas touches to Brody's room this year and I'm pretty much in love!  I love walking into his room and smiling at all the Christmas cheer!! These flannel santa sheets are so darn soft and cozy.  I literally want to crawl in bed with him.  I plan to share some pictures in his room soon.

If you have missed out over the last week or two, I have been sharing some fun gift lists to give you some ideas for Christmas shopping this year.  You can find them here and then I have several more coming up next week, so stay tuned!!
