Here are a few of our decorations this year!
This year, since we didn't have a lot of decoration stuffs to buy for the rest of the house, we let the kids get trees for each of their own bedrooms. I took them to Hobby Lobby and let them pick out their deocrations they wanted and then we got a coordinating tree.
This is My Girl's tree! She has a black one with all sorts of neon pinks, blues, greens, purples, etc. It is so rockin girly/edgy! And we all love it.
Now that we are all decorated and all of the presents are safely wrapped and under the tree, we can get to enjoying the upcoming festivities and shenanigans.
One of our holiday traditions that is coming up is touring the city of Bethlehem at Antioch Baptist Church. Every year for 3 days they have mock up of what the city would have looked like in a field out by their church. We have visited this every year since the kiddies were babies. They look so forward to bundling up and headed in to await the announcement of a baby! We make candles and taste goodies made like they may have back then. We visit the animals in the stables and hear the Torah read in Hebrew. It is an experience like no other!
But then, we are also doing something new this year. All My Girl's idea. She wants to invite some of her friends and let My Boy invite some of his friends over to "entertain" for a Christmas party. So...off we go into what I am sure will be our first annual friends Christmas party!
