There’s something so magical about Christmas trees. The twinkle lights, beautiful decorations, many of which have sentimental significance and the togetherness and anticipation we feel while decorating it. Probably my favorite Christmas tradition.

We went big this year with our gingerbread house. We had a blast decorating it…too bad lil’ Annika got the stomach flu that night, so none of us could eat the candy!

We hosted a fun Christmas party for the young women at our home. Gingerbread house decorating and a white elephant gift exchange. Fun for all!

Our little virtuoso, after her concert. Isn’t she pretty?!

Ahem, as I was saying….

Ammon was in charge of putting together this Evening of Creche. A huge display of nativities from around the world, complete with a canopy of twinkle lights and sugar cookies and a hot chocolate bar. Unfortunately for him (and us), he came down with a bug…So the kids and I baked and decorated 180 sugar cookies. It’s ok though…we had fun doing it! 

Yummy snow!

Sweet tomatoes for my birthday lunch with this amazing gal! So fun! Why did the day have to end?
