Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas!

Well, I have to admit that the Christmas season is my favorite time of the year. I definitely have an extra pep in my step through the month of December! I love sitting on the couch by the light of the Christmas tree drinking hot chocolate, while watching Home Alone!

We have been busy since Thanksgiving getting the house all decorated and ready for the Holidays. I am extremely excited, because as of this past week, I am officially done with classes and my internship. It was a great semester, and I had an awesome experience at the Children's Hospital in Dallas, but it is nice for a break. (And to know that I only have 1 more semester left of school- 4 classes and I will be graduating!!!) In the mean time I will be back working hard for my sister-in-law (Burns & Wilcox) and hopefully finding some time for stuff I have desperately been wanting to do.(scrapbook and read for fun!ha)

On that note, check out the pictures of some of the decorations. As always don't forget to remember the reason for the season. (yes dorky I know, but so true!)

Our tree

The awesome nativity scene that my mom gave us last year for Christmas. I hope to keep getting more pieces for it every year. I love it!

Advent calendar!! I have been searching high and low for one of these. Mom found me one this year! yay. It is just too cute too!

This is Bryan's homemade advent calendar. (I don't have enough discipline to have an advent calendar made of chocolate!)

a lil Christmas in the kitchen :)

Here are some close ups of a few favorite ornaments. It is so hard to pick just one. They all mean so much too me. I could probably tell you where each and every one came from. Each one is very special. The first one just cracks me up..It is a little gnome sleeping on the moon. I fell in love with all his hair! ha. He is from Norway in Epcot @ Disney world. The second one has a little bride and groom. Our anniversary is the 29th, during our favorite season! We had a wedding shower where eat guest gave us an ornament. So sweet. And the last is a picture of a cross. Bryan's mom has started giving each of the kids these special crosses every year during Christmas. Very neat. (Have I told you I love traditions!)

How could I forget!!! We had snow Wednesday!!!!! It was pretty much amazing! Here are a few pics from the morning. (Have I told you snow is one of my favorite things ever?)

That advent calendar is awesome! We were just talking about that... When did she find it? I'm so glad you found one that you can move daily. I'm sure I'll be kicking it old school with the mouse for awhile... Where did your mom find that one?
