As promised, we are heading upstairs to the bedrooms today!
First things first, John’s room… where the littles sleep with visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads. While my two each have their own room, they still both sleep in here. Something I will never discourage :-)
I love swapping out their bedding for festive coverlets and sheets. I’ve had all of this ever since John moved out of a crib many moons ago. Since it only gets about 6 weeks of use a year, it has held up perfectly and will last us many more.
Our little Christmas countdown tree is also in their room. They love pulling out the tag for each day to see what kind of special treat is in store. Sometimes it’s a movie or dinner out and other days it’s a game night or just hot chocolate after school.
Mother made them the Mickey stockings years ago when we were at Disney over the holidays. I still hang them on their beds because they are too sweet not to use.
John’s desk gets updated with strands of peppermint garland and a few hand made things he’s carried home from school.
The littles each have a tree in their room. Like our family tree downstairs, these have all been collected or made over the years. Honey and I each choose a special ornament for them each year and those are added to their collection. We pick something based on an interest or a place we’ve been or special thing we’ve done that year.
Even though Whit only uses his room to store his clothes, I still add a few touches each year. I feel compelled to put up his tree just so we can see all of his ornaments from over the years.
The guest room also gets a little tree and swaths of garland on each bed post. Mother and Daddy-O put trees up for guests in every bedroom and I love doing the same.
Our master bedroom is undergoing yet another update – new mirror, new bed and new rug so it’s in a state of disaster right now. Hopefully next year I’ll be ready to add a little Christmas in there as well!
