Some of my Favorite Things

The house is all decked out and ready for Santa's visit, that is one requirement I can say I have met. Thought I would share a couple of my favorite spots. This is my pride and joy this year. William's mom has made us each these gorgeous, cross-stitched stockings and last year she finished Joshua's so now we have a complete set. They make me so happy whenever I look over there during the day.
My big nativity, I have several but this is the "real" one. My parents gave it to us one of the first couple of years we were married. It has traveled with us and survived the kids so far. I love it.

The Christmas tree.

The gingerbread village on the kitchen table.
I always think my house looks its very prettiest at Christmas.

Several years ago, I purchased those exact cross stitch patterns. They are some of the most involved difficult patterns I have ever worked on. After doing one, I gave up. What a treasure to have them!

I've been meaning to visit and leave a comment all week.... Thanks for saying hello on my blog. It's always fun to "meet" the friend of a friend(s). Sharla said your DHS friends party was a riot, and I was utterly wowed by the creativity of the gifts you exchanged. Such a fun tradition! Your Christmas house looks cozy and festive... enjoy!
