Signs of Christmas:

An Angel.
Decorating the tree!

Hat hair!
Babies & Daddy's in the Christmas Parade!!!
Visits with Santa!
Yes, the Christmas season is upon us and we have already started to enjoy it's fruits. Our family has been enjoying candy canes, seasonal candles, trees, lights, parades, Santa, decorations and Christmas songs among many other things.

Christmas is such a neat time. I love hearing the kids learn about Jesus more each year. And in the midst of hard days, to hear them talk about how He lives in their hearts makes me incredibly proud of what we are accomplishing in our home. It is at this time of year that I realize once again how vital it is that I am with them everyday, whether its a good day or bad. Because even in the worst moments, when I feel I am teaching them nothing but impatience...I realize later that I have taught them some sort of lesson about love and life.

What are you doing to prepare for the big day??
We will be seeing the festival of lights, visiting with Santa more and hopefully playing in the snow soon. I have always and will forever love winter & all that comes with it....
What a blessed King we have to celebrate!!!

I was sooo looking forward to the christmas time...i decorated our appartment last weekend, bought the last presents and got my 9 days off from work over the holidays.
Sylvio is in Spain right now so i'm doing it alone. But when he's back we want to go on our christmas market and enjoy our time together. For New Year's Eve we will drive to Paris...
