You may see a familiar face towards the end :)

A peek into our house at Christmas

Mommy's favorite ornament
Jacob's new favorite...Santa's gonna bring him a big chew chew twain if he's a good boy :)

Jacob's favorite last year

Our tiny manger scene. We are going to a blessing tomorrow of our baby Jesus. We bring him and a box to mass with us. After the blessing, the children will wrap our Jesus in a small box. On Christmas day, we open the "present" and place him in manger.

Our Advent Wreath. I won't actually light it, because it is within Jacob's reach. We do pray the daily Advent prayer, we just don't light it. (Gotta straighten up that pink candle)
I didn't do any garland around the tree this year. Looks like something is missing. I think next year Daddy, Jacob and I will make some popcorn and cranberry garland for the tree.
I bought that snowman screen online. I didn't realize how small it was. I think it looks good in front of my acutal screen though. What do you think?

Not a great picture, but I love this Forever Family ornament from Hallmark.

I bought these personalized ornaments last Christmas and forgot how much I loved them until I unpacked them last weekend. I also bought a few for family members as Christmas gifts, they are of high quality...and they're cute! I got them here

I'm still working on getting everything together for this year. When I do, I'll post some pictures.
