December is here...

Growing up we never really decorated the inside of our home.  We had a Christmas tree that smelled oh so lovely and my dad always had his fancy lights outside...but that was it.  Now that I am a mom and I have my own home I wanted my own kids to have the full December feeling...that Christmas feel...and I know they always enjoy it when we take out our Christmas box from the garage.  I actually do not know who enjoys it more, me decorated or the girls seeing the house decorated.  But either way we have our annual festive home for a month and I'm pretty sure each year will just get better.

Our homemade Advent Countdown...for some reason it changes every year.

Last year we decided for a small tree...didn't enjoy it too much so back to our big tree.

Homemade clay ornaments 

I'm so blessed to have girls who enjoy doing a little arts and crafts with their mommy.  I'm blessed to have a home we can decorate...and most importantly I'm blessed we can celebrate Christmas and truly understand why we celebrate.
