It’s beginning to look a lot like . . .

CHRISTMAS!! Well, it’s looked like Christmas at our house for almost 2 weeks now. We put up our holiday décor the Sunday before Thanksgiving, just because we knew that we would be wiped out from our Thanksgiving travels. And boy, were we! We didn’t even travel around so much, but Holden and I brought home bad colds (that we still haven’t completely knocked). So I’m glad the decorations went up early. Holden got in on the decorating action. Well, not exactly. He watched from afar. And as I have said in a previous post, I am kind of glad that he isn’t mobile yet. So I can determine his proximity to the tree and the shiny ornaments that I’m sure look so tempting for his little hands to grab.
You may have noticed that I sacrificed my spot on the mantel. We need new stocking holders . . . and now matching stockings for that matter.
So shiney! And even looks like a toy.

We even did a little decorating in his room, though there isn’t much space to add much.
Merry Christmas! I hope you are all able to relax and enjoy this season and its true meaning.
Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift. 2 Corinthians 9:15

LOVE the one where Holden is sitting next to the tree just grinning from ear to ear! I NEED that picture and may have to steal it from your blog.

Glad to see you're planning on coming! We'll pray you continue to get well, but also know we won't be sharing slobbery toys, so I am really not too worried!

The tree looks FAB. But even cuter is that bright little smile setting it off.

Yah for Christmas! It is such a fun time! It was so smart that you all decorated early! Your tree looks so great! My favorite is the one with Holden sitting by the tree! His smile is brighter than all the lights on that Christmas tree put together! What a blessing!
Thank you for your very kind comments and encouragement on my last post! You are such a inspiration to me! I am so happy that God blessed you both with Holden and that your heart is so full of love for all of God's children!

looks like you need to go shopping for another stocking just like we do :-)
