i love christmas.
getting together with family.
baking some of our favorite treats.
singing our favorite carols.
all in celebration of Jesus' birth.
the last two years
our daughter wanted to decorate
in a simple handmade style.
she wanted every ornament to be made.
i have to admit.
i usually go all out.
put almost every.
ornament on the tree.
i did not.
we went through our boxes
and picked out the things that were made by hand.
(i did sneak a couple of my favorite store bought ornaments on the tree. i just couldn't help myself)
and i have to say that it is much more meaningful.
to see those things made from love.
hanging on our tree.
and on our 'mantel'
i am linking to~
be sure to go check out all the other lovely
links to their parties.
there are some wonderful, talented people!
