Christmas Lights and more


Our Birth of a King LapbookIMG_4975

I LOVE nutcrackers.   Some of our gifty bags.


The cookies that were not meant to be.  This was the nicest looking pan. 


Don’t ask me what she was doing.


We had friends over to help decorate.  Isn’t she a doll baby?

These two worked in silence shoulder to shoulder for about 30 min or more.  Sooo cute!  I’m sure it had nothing at all do to with the fact that while they were decorating they were munching.

The Magic Tree.  Our annual visit.  Still amazing every year. IMG_4996

No, that is not Ray, no idea who it is….that’s the problem with public places.

I’m actually pretty pleased about the above picture.  There were 3 random children (and non of them mine!) in it originally.


The “light house” as we call it.  So beautiful.  Every year the gentleman here builds something new to add.  This past year in Jan. upon taking it all down he made the camel in the photos below…. well, he died in the spring and his wife didn’t know that he had made the camel.  They only found it when they were setting up this year.  She told me that it was his last present to her.  - How did I not start bawling right there in front of her and my kids?! 

It is a beautiful sight.  This is two sides of the yard.  You can’t see everything they have up.  And that bell in steeple there to the left in the picture below swings back and forth.
