Have you been Naughty or Nice? Which list are you on??????? Well our Elf has been
in the house and he has been a bit Naughty :) This season we have been on the quiet side, which
is unusual for us during the Christmas Season....However, no major parts in the Christmas program and such...gotta say, the program is fun but a quiet year is fun as well.
Been busy with our countdown (making homemade ornaments -- wishing star ornaments (above), chalkboard ornaments & cups, red velvet pancakes, peppermint pancakes, party punch, games, and simply fun family moments....This is something I have learned to really love....during the
busy season, our countdown makes sure that we have some time together as a family.
Its awful to say but this is the first year that we have attended the live nativity in Middleburg.....was nice
and cold that evening but such a gentle reminder of our Lord.
I have been having a lot of fun making some new Christmas decor (Steve, with much coaxing, brought home some old windows for me to craft with....I gotta say, he kept asking why I wanted old junk windows but begrudgingly brought them home , YAY, pinterest and I are best friends)
Though we have given in to the artificial tree (I'm sorry but the cost for a real one was just getting to be too much) However, one of my very favorite things to see during the Christmas season (No clue why!!!) is a fresh cut Christmas tree on top of a car. I also LOOOOOOOVE to visit Country Cupboard and Country Farm and Home & drool over all of the stunning decorations and endless ideas they have.
