Bring on the Christmas season! The lights, carols, bundling up by a fire, hot chocolate, watching Christmas movies, giving gifts, receiving gifts, parties, traditions, reliving memories. Remembering the Greatest Gift of all. Don't you just love it?
I know the holidays can also be difficult as we think about people we've lost and wish were still with us on earth. I hope all of you can find hope this season with Jesus no matter what you've been through in your life!
Last night we went to get our Christmas tree. Jason and I have always bought a live tree. We love going to pick one out and the fresh pine smell in our house. The only bad thing is all the pine needles on the floor!

My parents gave Zach this advent tree for his birthday. Isn't it the cutest thing!? My sister Mandy discovered it. I love it! It's so big I'm having a hard time figuring out where I can put it in my house. When Z is older, I will fill it with candy so he can eat a piece each day it gets closer to Christmas!
I love our stockings! My mom said I should go ahead and buy other ones like Zach's for "other children" we may have, but I'm just not there yet! Ha!
A few Christmas decorations in my kitchen
Tonight our goal is decorating the tree. Z hasn't even noticed it, so I hope it stays that way!
