It's Beginning To Look A lot Like Christmas!

Oh how I love Christmas!
 I love our break from school and the time I get to spend with my family. I love that we have family parties to attend. I love the time we get to spend with our friends and extended family members. I know many people who hate the hustle and bustle Christmas can bring but I feel like I keep it pretty simple around here so that I can enjoy our extra time together. 

I love decorating our tree. I love talking about the memories of previous Christmas's or the memories of specific ornaments. I love that my kids love to help decorate the tree. 

I love watching my "little's" during this magical time of year. 
I love her tip toes, trying to reach so high!

Even Hunter who is 14 will still participate!
He wanted a real tree again this year but after last years fiasco, pretty sure it tipped 4 different times, I said No way!! We were a bit disappointed that with our slanted ceilings the tree topper wouldn't fit. Oh well..... 

Many years ago when money was tight I went ahead and ordered the Little People Nativity Scene. I absolutely love this piece and am so glad I still have it.  I love that it's all plastic and can easily be washed in the dishwasher. This is probably a set I will hang on for my grand kids! I love that even my 8 year old loves playing with it. 

Although this year he brought his army men into their little game. The army men were keeping baby Jesus protected from the wicked King Harod!

Love, love, love!
