Christmas Spirit

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while but it feels like this Christams season seems to have snuck up on me and has flown by.  I’m usually done shopping by early December but I didn’t finish it until just last week.  So I thought…I also have to make a run to the store today for a mom-didn’t-wrap-the-same-number-of-presents present!  Totally my fault but I was not in the mood to shop today.

We have all our regular decorations up that brighten the house up:

The card holder with all the beautiful families that I love seeing grow every year.  I love them so much I make a scrapbook out of them.  I also decided to wrap my picture frames this year to brighten things up even more.

My new shelves worked well to hang candy canes.  Then you can also see our stocking holder.

Santa is helping us count down the days.

 The Christmas tree did make it up the day after Thanksgiving just like always.  This year I let the kids decorate the tree.  I helped them get it set up and then sat down and handed them ornaments to decorate.  They did a great job!  We had to help get things to the top of the tree but otherwise it was all them!  I love seeing it all lit up and overflowing with presents.

We are all set for Santa to come!  I’m not sure how much longer we have with two kids that believe in Santa but so far we have two believers.  I’ve seen more than one post on Facebook by people saying they are ready to give up the facade but I don’t think I’ll ever be ready to give that up.  I think it gives Christmas a whole other level of magic!  There have been lots of questions about how Santa does this or that and we just do our best to answer and anything we can’t is just ‘MAGIC’!

MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all!  I hope it is the best Christmas you’ve ever celebrated!
