Merry Christmas!

“We are now in the Forest of Christmas, Miss,” answered the Nutcracker; “and it is here that people come to fetch the trees to which the presents sent by the guardian angels are fastened.” -The Nutcracker, Alexandre Dumas

I can’t believe how soon Christmas will be here! About a month ago, I took Christmas photos of my girls at Black Lake Trees. They’ve been a bit obsessed with The Nutcracker lately and requested that we do a “Nutcracker themed” tree decorating.

My Mother-in-law made them some cute cozy white nightgowns (just like Clara in the story) and then we found some Nutcracker dolls and snowflake ornaments to decorate with. My oldest even brought her stuffed mice along to hide in the tree (see if you can spot them)!

They had a great time playing and decorating a little Christmas tree. We did similar photos last year and they couldn’t wait to do more this holiday season. Check out some of my favorites below:

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
