I normally wait until New Year’s Day to take down our Christmas decor, but our poor tree hardly made it through Christmas this year so we decided to put it out of its misery. And now that the holiday decor is packed away, I’m feeling completely over the holidays and it’s not even January yet! Such a strange feeling. What about you? Do you take everything down the day after Christmas or do you wait until the new year?
Since I’m wrapping up Christmas in my home, I thought I should wrap up things around here too! Back in November, I shared with you the Pretty ‘n’ Pink Tutu I made Baby E for her 6 month photos and hinted that there MAY be a holiday version coming soon. Well, I finally did it! Just in time for Santa pics and Christmas morning. I tend to procrastinate when it comes to projects and this was no exception, but in the end everything turned out perfect. Just like it always does! (Riiiiiiiiight)
Back in October, my mom and I found this adorable Santa outfit for Baby E at a little boutique near the family beach cabin. The minute we saw it we knew E had to have it. So my mom wrapped it up and gave it to her for her 9 month birthday (yes, my mom gives her a gift for every month. Can you tell she is the first grandchild?).
To top the outfit off, I made a red tutu trimmed in white satin ribbon with a matching headband. I may be a little biased, but she looked pretty darn cute for her first Christmas :)

She is such a girly girl already, always after sparkles and glitter :)
Her patience ran out, on the move again…
And I’ll leave you with a little family photo.
For a tutorial on how to make the tutu, you can find that here.
Wishing everyone a safe and happy new year! See you in 2012 :)
