California Christmas

Now that we're a family of three, we wanted to establish a tradition of celebrating Christmas at our own home before heading to Utah for the holidays. And I'm happy to report that our little California Christmas was a success.
Let's discuss the atmosphere first, shall we? Our decorations weren't much different than last years', so click here to see how our house decks out for the holidays.
The biggest addition to our holiday decor was our Christmas disco ball. My friend Kaley gifted us this ornament, which happened to coordinate well with our living room doorway's silvery leaves, so we hung it in the center. Then we stepped back and noticed that the glittery bottom made it look like a disco ball, and a new Christmas tradition was born. We spent the month of December dancing to holiday music under our Christmas disco ball and created lots of happy little memories along the way. Today, it's the last Christmas decoration standing because we loved it so. Mistletoe, scmistletoe. It's all about the disco ball at the Davis home.
Jake's favorite part of Christmas -- aside from the dancing, of course -- was all of the lights. That baby loves him some good Christmas lights. We laid him under the tree one night and he was enchanted.
Jake liked being under the tree a bit more than taking pictures in front of it. Why bother smiling for the camera when you could be eating things like hats and hands -- two at a time?
We managed to sneak a little grin out of him before breaking for snack time.
Then it was time for presents! We took a little video of Jake opening his first-ever Christmas present, which was a sweet little Christmas book in case you were wondering.
Lastly, we helped Jake make his first Christmas ornament. It turned out rather cute.
And then we took off for Utah and some even bigger celebrations!
