Scenes From Before Christmas

Just wanted to share a few scenes
of our Christmas preparations.

Here are the girls with Santa.
Rachel asked for Tinkerbell and
Build-a-Bear DS games.
Rebekah asked for a baby doll that
goes pee pee and poo poo,
washes her hands and brushes her teeth.

Here is our fireplace and mantle.
This was one part of the house that
I could not wait to decorate.
I love the way it turned out.

These are mine and Jon Paul's stockings.
We received these as a wedding
present and have used them every
year we've been together!
Jon Paul is Santa - I'm the Snowman.

And here are Rachel and Rebekah's
stockings. We got these two years
ago and I love them!

And last, Nana and Kathy's stockings.
Kathy loves her stocking more
than what's usually in it.

Here is our Christmas tree.
This was fun to put up this year in the new house.
We put it in the corner of the dining room,
and you could still see it in the window from the street.

Jon Paul and I received the starting set
of this nativity as a wedding present.
Over the years, we have added to it.
My grandmother, Dandy, was also a collector.
The pieces are beautiful and I love
how they have the "old world" look.

This is the Gloria angel.

The shepherds were watching their flock by night...

The kings came to visit him, bring him gifts...

Come back...more photos to come!

I collect the same stuff. My mom does too. She has almost the entire village. I LOVE it!
