Christmas Tradition #1

My friend has started sharing her family's Christmas traditions in her blog & suggested some of us share ours. I LOVE the idea! So I thought I would start sharing too.
The first thing we start doing to celebrate Christmas....DECORATING! I LOVE to decorate for Christmas!!! I have also wanted to decorate for other holidays, but haven't done that yet....maybe one day. I always loved helping Mom decorate when I was living at home. And last year, Kayla was able to start helping me. This year, Jamie helped get in on the action. For those of you who follow me on Facebook, so for the repeats, but here are pictures from our decorating this year.
Decorating the Tree

I LOVE my little helpers!
The wreath. Yes, I KNOW it's a little lopsided, but it gives it a little added character

These were Jamie's personal touch (hanging from the light & fan string)
Outside lights
And OF COURSE, the REAL reason to celebrate Christmas, the birth of Jesus

Like my friend, I would LOVE to hear about Christmas traditions in your family! Feel free to blog about them, comment on here, or comment on Facebook after I share about it there. I would LOVE to incorporate some new traditions into our house! I've already thought of a new one for next year based on my friend's blog.


  1. ok, so now I totally want to do a linky so you can link up your blog.

    1. I tried to linky up....let me know if it worked or not. Sorry I didn't linky with your Thanksgiving leftovers! Apparently we don't do anything with our but reheat. Debbie DID make some turkey salad (like chicken salad but with leftover turkey), but I didn't get a chance to eat any of that....


Thank you SO much for checking out my post. I will try my hardest to reply back to everyone that comments.
