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?

I think it looks great!! I'm determined my next house will have a fireplace just so I can decorate the mantle for the holidays!! SERIOUSLY!!

I think it's an awesome tradition to take baby Jesus to be blessed!
