around my house // Christmas time

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas".
The welcome wreath at the front door.
Someone is looking pretty sad at the door these days -- it's cold outside.
So we allow Kayna in for a nap during the evening.
Our tree is so pretty this year (I think I say that every year).
We actually go slugging out in the bush at my brother-in-laws to personally pick our tree. We cut down the smallest one, bring it home & it usually ends up still looking massive in our living room.
This's just perfect.

Daria's new ornament this year.

Some other new sparkly balls for the tree.

Baking shortbread cookies.

Paper snowflakes (created by Asha) for my window.

Decor in my living room & dining room.

The "snowbaby" village that the girls set up every year.
The village buildings come from my sister and every "snowbaby" ornament is specially hand-painted by Ron's aunts at Christmas. We get to pick 5 for our family every year........which we add to the display.
One of my favourite traditions & memories.
We will cherish these ornaments forever.

Asha is counting down the days 'til Christmas with her school-made paper chain.

And can anyone else say they have a replica of the Taj Mahal in their living room right now?
Carter created this (with a little help from his parents) for his Structures Project in Grade 4.
It heads out the door tomorrow for his presentation.

Wishing you joy & happiness this holiday season.
May you feel the true meaning of Christmas in your hearts
& share it with your friends and family.
Blessings {from the farm},
