Our Christmas Tree

FINALLY!  We have never put up our tree this late!
Now that the girls are older, we've gone back to burning candles all the time!  It makes it feel cozier, especially on snowy days!
Sylaris.  The girls hung about 99% of the ornaments.

Kalam.  My children would keep the tree up year round if we let them!

Fluffing branches.  They take this very seriously.

Santa hats were added!


Kalam.  The best one I took of her alone.  (And I know, it's not a good one of her. lol)

Holiday Colors
There is nothing better than Christmas lights!

Holiday/Winter Icon
My baby girl drew this... The Holiday Icon is Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus around the Christmas tree with an Angel pointing to the star.
A Tree
This ornament belonged to my Great-Grandma.  It never misses a year!

My other baby girl.  Quiet.  Not something that happens often.
Favorite Color
I love orange a lot... but I love all the rest of the colors too!

It's Wednesday... here's some stuff.

We are DnD players at our house... here are some tools of the trade.
My daughter loves to draw stories.  This is her version of the birth of Christ.

We had a Holiday Party at our house over the weekend... here is a simple reminder of good food and fun times!

It's Christmas time.... I just can't get in the Christmas mood this year.  Normally by now, our tree is up and most of the presents are bought.   This year the only thing that shows Christmas is coming at our house is this lone ornament.

Pineapple.  Love them.

Black Olives... Love them too!

My Crazy children.
