Merry Christmas! I was going to wait until we were in our new house to get all of our Christmas stuff out, but I couldn't stand it! So we have a few yuletide objects around the house. This is one of my new favorites. I love to collect nativity sets, and this is the one I got this year. I love how all the animals are stacked up to see baby Jesus! I am sure they were just as excited to meet their Creator as all the humans. Probably more so, since they don't get caught up in all the other stuff that humans do. I like how the baby is looking right back at the animals, too.
And here are our brand new stockings from Pottery Barn Kids. I have been coveting these for the last 3-4 years, and finally decided I would get myself a nice housewarming present! I have a feeling there will be a lot of those.... Anyway, I know it's a horrible picture, but I think I am the only person on the planet left who doesn't have an SLR camera (what does that stand for anyway? Superb Lens Rigging? Shoot, Load, Rewind?) you will just have to put up with the poor quality!
We had a good Thanksgiving, and I went out and did a little shopping yesterday. I love this time of year. I think everyone tries to be a little kinder, a little more helpful, a little more polite. Okay, except for those crazy people in New York who trampled people to death! But other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, ....
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are looking forward to the Christmas season! I promise to post more often, although, I noticed everyone else has posts sitting there from like three weeks ago! I guess we are all starting to get crazy busy.
It is snowing today, and the girls are trying to go out and play! I guess that means I am on hot chocolate duty! Have a great Saturday and enjoy the season!

I love that nativity! Where did you get it? I WISH I could come help you move, this one will be a little different for you, won't it?! Good luck with it all, and happy holidays!! XOXOXO

Marianne,
I got it at deseretbook.com! You can probably just walk into a deseret book and buy one! I wish you could help me move, too. Or, that I could just send all my kids to you for a week while we move.

I'm so glad you said where you got the nativity set. I just ordered one and I also ordered the stockings. Please put pictures of more decorations so I know how to decorate my house!! Good luck with the move.

When we were in Rexburg last weekend I ALMOST bought that nativity for a friend. I LOVE IT. Maybe next year I'll treat myself.

Did you end up getting your presents from us? Poor Vaughn having to put up with my flakiness. I promise, promise, promise, when you move, I'll learn where you are living and REMEMBER! {You're moving to Oklahoma, right? Or is it Kansas? Heaven help me!}

Single Lens Reflex (Laurie's friend). That is a really cute nativity.
