It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here

If you've been reading this little blog awhile you know that I'm a total nerd when it comes to my love and devotion to all things Christmas. Fairly certain it'd be annoying if I weren't so charming. ;)


The kids LOVE this. I'm not just saying that. They seriously love this.


You know who never used to love this? Zach. To be fair, I do tend to grate on nerves this time of year. That said, he's a terrific husband. And he loves me so much. Truly, our marriage has never been better and most of that has to do with this guy.


See?


Speaking of stockings, how about these that my mom-in-law made? Can't help but notice there is clearly room for a few more, right honey?


Mitigu tried to help decorate too. He ended up just knocking down all the decor. Regardless, he's so freakin' cute.


Obviously our favorite part. My grandmother made this nativity set. Zach and I enjoy this set because it provides many great discussions. One of my favorite things to do is add that little bit of "snow". Why? Was there really snow in Bethlehem? Probably not. Still fun to watch Zach question many things I do regarding this nativity set. Doozie of course loves her some baby Jesus.


After a few minutes I noticed Zach and I were really the only ones going strong. But who can get angry with a couple of budding chess players? Not this gal.


Feeling very, very blessed these days.

I love leaving unsubtle "lets adopt more" messages imbedded in FB posts and blogs for my husband.

So fun! I think I will enjoy decorating for Christmas again next year when I am further out of baby land. The two boys drive me to drink, so the glitz will be understated this year.

Thanks for your comment on my last post. As you know, it's a big deal.

In your defense, we were in Bethlehem on Christmas eve a few years ago and it did snow a light dusting!

Merry merry! I, too, am a bit of Christmas nut. Chris strictly enforces a "no Christmas music until after Thanksgiving rule", and I've certainly made up for that in the last week.
P.S. I see lots of empty room on that mantle... ;)

It is funny right? Thinking more? Maybe not funny, more like crazy? But I found this lovely pink apron of my mother's today and even though we have enough aprons for me and the kids I thought, "well, we will need another one for the next child." Hmm.
