We have started 2 new traditions this year for Christmas...we are reading Jotham's Journey about a little boy's adventures right before the birth of Jesus. An excellent read (thank you, Kim P, for your suggestion).
And then we are reading a daily devotional & creating a little "ornament" for our Jesse Tree each day. The boys are enjoying this so much.
Here are the fruits of their labors so far...
And I forgot to show you a picture of my favorite spot in this house...there is a ledge in the living room with the vaulted ceiling that allows me to display my Christmas pictures. I love it!
