It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas...

This weekend was a blast getting ready for the Christmas Season! Although, I wasn't feeling very well, we did have a ball! It started on Friday when Aidan and I decorated the tree and house for Christmas!



Aidan found a reindeer headband and a Santa hat for us to wear! We even sang jingle bells to boot!




Then on Saturday morning, we woke up to a wonderful snowfall! Time for tobogganing! Daddy even took the day off from side jobs just so we could have some family time! What fun!





Finally, it was back to the house to make Reindeer Treats and a Gingerbread house! We had nice hot bowls of Chicken and Dumplings while the fire roared in the background and Christmas music filled the air!






And to top it all off, we viewed The Polar Express on Sunday evening while eating popcorn and drinking "HOT CHOCOLATE!"

Our family is praying that you find Joy in the True Reason for the Season, Jesus Christ! Merry Christmas!

We had a few flurries here yesterday, just enough to get me really excited about snow!

Just beautiful. I love every picture!
In a nearby town, they give families rides on the train and read the children The Polar Express. I think we're taking Alex this year. :)

What a wonderful day you had! Chicken and Dumplings sounds so yummy. Can I have your recipe? :o)

Thanks for the comment about the Reindeer food. I was wondering how I was going to show that the reindeer had been here. Great idea!
