Deck the Halls time











It is Christmas time!! This past weekend while my family was in town we decided to decorate for Christmas. This is one of my absolute favorite things to do. Each year after Christmas we always buy a couple of new decorations at about 80% off and then the next year we have so much fun remembering what we bought the year before and deciding where everything should go. This year was no different, we have a new angel on top of our tree and we got a new set of twinkling stars to hang outside. It is always a mess getting everything out but it is also like opening little presents when you unwrap each thing and reveal what's inside. Also, because this is Frank's first Christmas he doesn't have a stocking yet. Jillian felt so bad about it that she made him a stocking herself. It was the sweetest big sister gift! Last but not least we put on the new Faith Hill Christmas album, which is fabulous by the way, and got into a jolly old mood singing away!

I LOVE your new family pic on your blog! And that Jillian is just TOO sweet for words--how cute that she made baby Frank his own stocking. I am now so inspired that I am making my way to the garage to get my decorations out right after I finish this comment...

It was really fun helping with the decorations. I'm looking forward to enjoying them again!! I was so impressed with Jillian's stocking I'm going to teach her to make a pillow this summer.
