2nd Day of Christmas: Photo Challenge

Day 2 – Your Christmas Countdown

This is the Countdown that we have used for as long as I can remember. There is a little snowflake attached to the twine (not pictured) that fits into the pockets to keep track of the days.

I made this one with a kit that we had laying around a few years ago… I keep track on this one.:) There are little felt ornaments that go on each button for each day.


Dec 16th – Your favorite holiday movie…

1st Day of Christmas: Photo Challenge

Day 1 – Memories from Christmases past

This way we will get to see some old photo’s and see how much improvement has been made over the years!:)

Simon waits at the door on Christmas morning 2009, he knows what’s coming… paper to shred!!! He still does this.:)

My dad brought home this “Charlie Brown” poinsettia in 2009.

For some reason, one year in the late 1990′s, we didn’t have a tree topper for our Christmas tree. We were at a potluck type thing at a church, and I believe it was Christmas Eve. I remember a lady giving us this straw angel tree topper! It always reminds me of how God provides for us!
