I am sooooo excited that Christmas is getting closer. It is so wonderful that we get to celebrate the birth of Jesus...the greatest gift ever! I just love listening to the Christmas music on the radio and seeing all of the decorations everywhere....we also have to watch a Christmas movie atleast once a week. My favorite is "Christmas w/ the Kranks", Kelly's fav is "A Christmas Story", and the kids love "The Grinch"! Each year we go out and buy our tree the day after Thanksgiving and then spend the entire weekend decorating. I love it....the kids get so excited! Once our tree is up then it's time for our Elf on the Shelf "Hoss" to return from the North Pole. It is so fun to see how the kids react each morning when he is in a different spot...Asa does get a little carried away the first few days...he will wake up at 3am to go on a search for the elf! This year Hoss came bearing gifts...Christmas PJ's..so that was a nice surprise for Iris and Asa.
We hope everyone has a very blessed holiday and hopefully next year we will have a wonderful addition to our family!
