It's Christmas Eve!!! The day of much anticipation is almost here!! The tree is ready . . .
Stockings the kids made when they were 8 and 4 (19 and 15 currently!!) are displayed by their school pictures - not for filling, but fulfilling to mom . . .

I bought these Precious Moments houses several years ago.
I'm so glad I did this year. I love them all over again.

I love to bake! I can make some pretty good cookies, especially at Christmas. Today I was a busy baker. I made Oatmeal Pecan cookies with cinnamon chips.

I love Christmas! I think I love Christmas more this year than any other year - only because I have my act much more together this year than in years past. I have already accomplished so much and I have enjoyed every minute of it.
My little white feather tree is a flamingo tree this year. I love flamingo's, probably because they are pink. Isn't this tree adorable?
Rachel talked me into a real tree this year after the lights died last year on the artificial one we had for the past seven years. We always used the multi-colored lights because the kids liked those best. This year we will be using white lights and I am so excited to see how it looks. That will be the mission for Tuesday night. We still have baking to do, cards to send out and gifts to wrap, but it's Christmastime and the events leading up to the special day are half the fun!
Aren't those little flamingo's divine?!
