That's the way I like it.
Unlike most years in the past, we celebrated this holiday at home with just us. It was so relaxing... so laid-back actually that we FORGOT the mashed potatoes till about five minutes before eating! Everything else was wonderful though!
Enjoy these holiday pics!
Yummy turkey stuffing!
The spread. Buffet style!
Thanking God for all He's done for us.
My plate. Ohhh... that was so good...
Bekah enjoying her first Thanksgiving!
I can't believe she'll be a year old next month!
My family has always put up all of the Christmas decor the day after Thanksgiving. I know that isn't so good for Black Friday shoppers, but I got all my shopping done online!
My family absolutely loves Christmas... as you will soon see!
Nativities: big, medium, small, miniature... our house is full of them!
I'm only going to show pics of three of the sets we own!
This picture only shows about a third of this set! It covers our entire mantle.
It's SO beautiful... so beautiful that I can almost deal with Baby Jesus having a full head of blond hair.
We don't do a live tree, but we sure love this one.
It looks so much smaller in our new house with the BIG living room!
It was all crunched in a corner last year!
Some of our ornaments have been with us for generations.
Handpainted by Mom!
The stockings are hung. Jessie and Natie love their horse stockings!
Our miniature Christmas town!
This is one of my favorite Christmas decorations.
Jessie and me dramatically watching the figurines. :-)
My dad made this when he was a boy.
Yes, he did.

So, what do you love about Christmas decorations? Do you have special things that your family has kept through the years? Which do you prefer- colored or white Christmas lights?
Hmmm... I like white.
