It's Beginning to LOOK a lot like Christmas

Halloween to New Years is my favorite time of the year.
I can't wait to decorate each year
and generally do so early because I put out so much.
This year I debated about how much and when to do it.
My friends have been SO supportive~ I would say...
"I really want to put up my tree"
one would say~ Do it!
SO Sunday when all the girls and Josh were home,
we pulled out the big tree and had a ball
decorating our it~
SJ's first Christmas Tree and she LOVED it!!!

Can you tell a couple of littles were really tired?

SJ's first Christmas tree!

And then I would say...
"Not sure I am going to do everything this year"
Another friend steps in to DO IT with me!!!
My sweet friend Cyrise offered and came over today
to help me (and the girls) decorate.
She came prepared...
sitckers and coloring books for the girls. :)
We had so much fun talking,
decorating trees, putting out all my Santas,
and nativity scenes.
Thanks Cyrise!!!
I love having everything out for SJ's first Christmas!!!

Now it's time to enjoy
The REASON for the Season!!!

Luke 2:7 NIV

She gave birth to her firstborn, a son.
She wrapped Him in cloths and placed Him in a manger,
because there was no room for them in the inn.


  1. Not too early for me either! Alaina and I got her little pink tree up today (no ornaments yet, but it's plugged in and lighting up the bedroom!).

  2. I'd love to see more pictures of your Santas. Are they a certain make? I usually wait until Thanksgiving to put out my Christmas decoractions, but you have inspired me to start earlier!

  3. Good for you! It's so nice to have friends that will help in times of need. :-) Your tree and decorations look beautiful.

    I couldn't imagine putting a tree up right now. We live in such a warm climate, even when I decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving seems strange. I'm so happy your little one is enjoying the festivities so far. Boy... she's going to be in for a big surprise come Dec. 25th!

  4. I've been wondering if it is too early to start playing Christmas music in the library. :-) Love SJs slippers!

  5. How Exciting! You have inspired me to get my stuff out this weekend and start putting it up. It is a great feeling to have it done, and to focus on the reason for the season.

  6. WOW! You have me beat. I thought getting the decorations up by Thanksgiving was good, but how much more fun to start the celebration even sooner.

  7. Oh I could not agree more!! Bring it on! I am SO doing it next weekend :) Like a rebel - BEFORE Thanksgiving :)

  8. Such beautiful pictures! I love the firsts...first Christmas, etc.!
