It's Begining To Look A Lot Like Christmas

I love decorating the house for Christmas.
L.O.V.E. I.T.
I anxiously await playing Christmas movies on the TV while we set up the tree, drink hot chocolate and reminisce about childhood traditions.
I also have also discovered that I am married to Clark Griswold this year. Somehow he keeps adding more and more lights to the house.
Love that too.
This is the manger scene Jason's grandfather built for him from the tree that used to be in his front yard. We are still working on collecting the nativity people. :)And I LOOOOVE my Christmas table!
Every decoration on our tree has meaning. Each year we purchase an ornament that represents that year as a whole for us.

This ornament is from 2006. We were writing letters to Santa asking for a baby after a recent miscarriage. That Christmas I found out that I was pregnant with Gavin.
This ornament is from 2008. Gavin has blessed our lives and I was pregnant with Jack.
We lived on hope that year.
We also have a fun tradition of buying ornaments from each place we visit. It was fun hanging all our new ornaments we purchased in Europe. This is my favorite one this year. It is from Sorrento, Italy.

I can't wait to come down. I am very anxious to see you all. I am so excited to hug and kiss my cute nephew and to spend quality time with all of you.
