This past weekend, we {ok, my husband} climbed up into the attic and dragged all of the Christmas boxes down. We trimmed the tree, put out my Christmas village, and decorated the outside. It really has us all in the Holiday spirit now! Some of my favorite decorations are the ones the Ethan has made in preschool. And I have them all saved! I mean, how can you throw them out!

Now that Ethan is in Kindergarten, I know the Christmas crafts won’t be coming in as fast as they did when he was in preschool. So, we are making some on our own!
