|My Spode, one of most favorite gifts. I didn't like receiving it as a 10 year old, but golly, I love it now.|
|Our new tree skirt.|
|Our first tree!!|
|Up close. We love this tree.|
|New stockings and garland. Jack's Nutcrackers.|
|Here are the other Nutcrackers. Jack says he gets one every year, however I am only counting 18 - therefore there could be 6 nutcrackers on the run....|
|Our small Spode tree from my Grandma. This guy served as our tree last year.|
|Our Nativity. Joy to the world!|
|It's much better in person. We are hoping to add some red and green lights as our lights by the garage. Oh, and garland around the front door.|
We are super excited. And maybe I have named a room in the house the North Pole. You know, a room to wrap, sing loud, and be all Elf like (oh, note to self: watch Elf!!!).
Plus, we are seeing Trans-Siberian Orchestra this weekend with my mom. It's our Christmas tradition and I love it. I may or may not be trying to memorize all their songs prior to Saturday. It's hard to recall them each year, since you only listen to them once a year.
We hope you are getting ready for Christmas (and I hope you are staying warm and stress-free!).
Now, we just some snow...
