Now that the Christmas is over I have a little time post about our Christmas. Every Christmas Eve we read the kids The Night Before Christmas. For the past two years my oldest has read it to the younger children.
Then we leave cookies out for Santa. This year I didn’t get to the cookie baking so Santa had to make do with Vienna Fingers and Oreos.
We mixed things up a bit and went to church on Christmas Day. It wasn’t crowded like the Christmas Eve masses. Who knew? We then had a wonderful dinner with family.
Here are some pictures from around the house.
I took a branch that my husband trimmed from the tree and decorated it. This is the vase from my fall branches project. https://mommyidea.wordpress.com/2010/11/09/fall-branches/ I added lights and silver balls to the vase. Then I put snowflakes and silver butterflies on it.
Here is my picture card wreath that I described in the Christmas card display post. https://mommyidea.wordpress.com/2010/12/04/christmas-card-display/
