Our Christmas House

This year we did not go all out with decorating since well you know, we have a TODDLER who gets into EVERTHING!

Christmas is my favorite holiday.  Not because you get presents but because you give.  I have been teaching my boys since they were born that giving is important.  We adopt a family or a child, donate to toys for tots and recently started to donate all of our outgrown coats.  I am very proud to say that Dominic has taken to this with delight.  He loves to help out others and be giving.  Christmas is also a favorite of mine because of the lights and decorations.  Seriously, who does not like to drive around all the neighborhoods and look at everyone's lights? I love the shine, glimmer and feeling that you get at this time of year.

Our decorations are up and my kidlets are getting excited.  Okay, I will admit, I am getting excited.  We are almost done shopping and are well on our way to being fully ready!


  1. okay, lady- you need to participate in my 'show me your Christmas' thingie :)

  2. Your house looks great....hehe..I saw it in person before seeing this! Love the pic of the boys. Logan is too funny. Lincoln really enjoyed playing with him!

  3. I love the pictures! I guess you won't get to go all out with the decorations for the next two years! ;)

  4. Awesome! I love Christmas too! I am jealous that you decorated this weekend. I typically do as well, but was much too busy! I hope to work on it this week!!
