This year I decided to do something different w/ the Christmas tree. I found a bunch of 4 x 5 pictures of Jesus that I tied w/ ribbon all over it. Then I just put silver balls and lots of snowflakes stars and tin tinsel all over. We think it turned out beautiful and left no one wondering WHO we believe in!
This is our main Christmas present, the kitchen floor ~ oak. We absolutely love it!
Arlin also built me these picture rails
And 2 of these beautiful end tables!! Arn't I the luckiest girl ever?
The sisters and Neil & Maddy came over for breakfast, we had waffles w/ strawberries & whip crm, bacon, hot cinnamon milk, hot cocoa & orange juice. I think that should be traditional ~ it was sooo delicious!

My favorite thing to do for Christmas is get new jammies for everyone! I love finding them (sometimes able to coordinate them all) and then we open them on Christmas eve. We've been doing that ever since our kids were born and still do it, even for grandkids and kids in law.
This year was a little too rough for us cause we didn't have even one child home for Christmas ~friends of ours took pity on us and invited us for Christmas Eve~ that was tons of fun cause they had a little talent show and invited us to participate. (as long as we didn't upstage any of the performers) so, we didn't.......
