Everything's done. Christmas music plays almost thru the house. I've even watched several Christmas movies already, The Holiday, Christmas Vacation, and Home Alone.
I've been using the same tree for years now. But it's not working out so well this year. Its on its last limb. And I'm still working on it. Plan B: get a real tree.
There's a lot of stockings hung all in a row on the mantle. Every year another stocking is added. So there are a mixture of stockings. It makes it fun.
My Christmas books are front and center. A tradition that we read The Newborn King before we open gifts. Because that's really what it's all about. It's our best gift ever that Christ the Savior is Born.
I even decorate the dog every year. She's always the first one ready. You may take Santa pictures with your kids. But this is our kid now. And it's her Santa picture, but without Santa.
