Here are some pictures of Lillian Annabel's room decorated for Christmas. Just like the rest of the house we went pretty simple and just used a mix of fresh and faux greenery. I also have taken pictures now of our master bedroom and will hopefully have time to post those tomorrow.
Here is one of the stockings that my mom made for Lillie's first Christmas - I can't believe that was two years ago! Where does time go? In fact it was two years ago right now (the date isn't the same but it was around two in the morning the Sunday after Thanksgiving) that we were on our drive back from Liberty after a basketball game that we hit that infamous deer and ended up at the hospital where Lillie made her arrival hours and hours and hours later! Thus the nickname Deer Lillie and eventually the name of our shop, Dear Lillie. We changed the spelling because we figured people would be very confused why we spelled it after an animal. Ahhh - I am getting sidetracked, as always! Anyway, we are selling a similar version of this stocking in our Etsy shop. We just put a little bit of greenery poking out of it to add a pop of color.
Jessica at Joyfolie sent us the little fur stole and boots! Now if I could just get Lillie to put them on! She has decided that boots are too hard to walk in =(....oh well, even if she never gets over that they look so pretty in her room I am content just staring at them!
The tree didn't last long in her room as she informed us it was "so scary" while clutching her heart. I am a tad confused seeing how she was soooo excited about all of the other "baby trees" that we had in the house that we made an extra trip back to Lowe's to get her this one for her room. Oh well! I just ended up moving this one to our room!
Our friend Kelly was working at the Santa's Land in New Town this afternoon so we brought Lillie over. Last year she did fine but this year she was absolutely petrified of Santa. She loved the train they had going around one of the trees, though, and spent about 45 minutes playing with that - but she wanted absolutely nothing to do with poor ol' Santa!
We also had another basketball game. We are hosting a Thanksgiving tournament and played last night, tonight and again tomorrow. We won both last night and tonight - yay! Our neighbors came tonight and I think Lillie and Jackson had as much fun tickling each other as they did cheering.
And here is Lillie with Miss Kelly checking out our mascot who she refers to as the "birdie"
And of course her favorite part of any game is once it is over getting to run around on the court. There was a new security guard working down on our corner tonight who informed them only coaches and players were allowed on the court but Lillie and Kyla were quick to let them know it was okay =)
Lillie and her best friend Kyla! They picked up right where they left off last season and go crazy as soon as they see each other! Here they are on the bench after the game. I am pretty sure they wish they could sit here DURING the game!
Well, that's it for now! It is late and I still have some more work to do before crawling in bed.
I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!
