Christmas Wonderfulness

We try so hard each year to push the Christmas decorating back as far as possible as to allow the season of Advent to be celebrated. The kids are always so excited to deck the halls. Frankly, I am too! I love all the smells and bells of preparing for Christ's birth. Since I was due around Christmas, we let them decorate early. About three years ago, I decided to let them decorate for the most part. I had spent the morning correcting and reminding everyone to "Please be careful!" and "Please don't break that!" I drove myself crazy and probably ruined the spirit. NO MORE. They were so excited! I didn't want their memory to be of me stressed. They truly had a wonderful time. I sat and watched and admired.
I found this village on super duper clearance years ago and it is always the most treasured item.  They play with it from the moment it goes up until the moment I pack it away for next Christmas.

Dominic is my trusted advisor.  He shares my joy and excitement for Christmas decorating. 

Dominic and Rose were talking together while he played through Christmas songs. 
We buy one new nutcracker every year.  We name them after members of our family and extended family according to what the nutcracker portrays.
A couple years back, we started getting one new snow globe every year.  I am always on the lookout at Goodwill, Target, or any thrift store to find these treasures.


  1. Christmas is one of mu favourite time in whole year! Beautiful photos :)

  2. I try to wait on decorating as well, but honestly, I LOVE it. I love the smell of fresh cut greenery, lights, all of it. We do Advent pretty big- but I think the Advent celebration can coexist with some Christmas decor- at least a tree and lights- I could look at that year round:)

    1. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.
