On terms Joseph can understand, as we filled his room with balloons for his birthday, we are decorating our house for Jesus's birthday party! I love how cozy our house gets during the holidays with all the lights and warm colors. I also love the traditions we are starting.
Some of my favorite things:
Our stockings hung on the mantel. They were knitted by Christopher's Nanny.
Our collection of lighted houses started by Christopher's grandmother and continued by his mother.
The latest addition - the nativity set my dad brought back from Africa, hand-carved by a villager.
Last night we went tree shopping and the boys helped pick out our "biggest, most beautiful" tree. (Joseph)
Yep - that's the one daddy. We're excited about decorating it today!
