Christmas is upon us.

Even though we were still sick, when my husband began to bring the Christmas decorations down from the attic, everyone got excited. The good thing about having a small house is that it doesn't take that long to get it looking festive for the holidays.
My little ones were extremely happy about putting ornaments on the tree and they were obsessed with the three nutcrackers we have. For some reason, they were and continue to be intrigued by those nutcracker people. We had a great time and in the course of a couple of hours, everything was finished.
We will probably try to add to our collection by going to the after Christmas sales and recruiting another soldier for 50% off!

These photos are priceless. Yes it is a magical time of year for the little ones. I remember all those traditions I did with our children, baking cookies, making bead decorations for the tree. Making a Birthday Cake for Jesus they loved it all. Keep making memories they will be treasured forever.

I just love your blog! Thanks for sharing as always!

My kids are always handling the nutcrackers. I just let them. They really are more fun to play with than to just look at. Fortunately, I don't spend to much money on them, so no biggie if they get broken!

I'll post pics of our decorations soon.
