Favorite Day : :

It's on this day, each year that I feel a special joy and gratitude, a certain wonder and love that comes from celebrating our traditions.

It's finally Christmas Tree Day!!

Our Christmas Tree before!

Lit up!

On Christmas Eve my kids each receive a new nutcracker, we already have quite the collection, I love it!!

Its beginning to look alot like Christmas!!

I hope that your December is off to a lovely start! And that in the busyness of it all, you're finding a few moments to sit and stare at the beautiful things in your world too!

  1. Those little puppets on your mantle are amazing!
    We're about to head off to our new home in the country today! I'm so excited. And can't wait to decorate it. :)

    1. It's tradition for my children to each receive a new Nutcracker, along with their Christmas pajamas, on Christmas Eve. We already have quite the collection, I love it!!

  2. That is a beautiful tree! Enjoy. Merry Christmas 🎄

  3. Beautiful! Looks like you have a ton of lights on that tree!

  4. Just beautiful. I've pinned that mantle and sent it to my daughter. My 6 yr old granddaughter adores nutcrackers and she will flip out over your display :).

  5. Wow, that's a lot of lights! I don't think you'll be needing heat from the fireplace!

  6. Lovely! My sister gets a new Santa every year and I get a snow globe. It really is the traditions that make this time of year so special I think
