Merry Christmas!

I love these things about this time of year…

-explaining the awesome simplicity of the manger scene to my boys

-snuggling on the couch with the family

-Bing Crosby crooning carols

-receiving Christmas cards (ours will be New Year’s cards )

-reading to the boys the same version of “The Night before Christmas” that my dad used to read to me

-any Celestial Seasonings Christmas-flavored tea (took a fun tour there today)

-packages from family on the doorstep

-Bubba singing “Happy Birthday, Jesus” to himself

-scarves and mittens

-letting the kiddos help light and then blow out the Advent candles over and over and…

-wrapping presents and feeling blessed

-a long phone call with a favorite sister

-planning feasts for great friends

-searching far and wide for the perfect gift for Haus.  I like spoiling that man.

-”White Christmas”… still one of my favorite movies any time of year

-Pumpkin Cheesecake candles

-preparing Christmas cookie plates for neighbors

-the anticipation for the celebration

Would love to hear your favorite thing about this season.  Oh and send me a message if you would like a Christmas card!

Much love and blessings this Christmas as we celebrate Jesus!
