It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...

We've enjoyed some eggnog this week, and we've mostly decorated the tree. There are stockings hung on the mantel (which reminds me, that we will be needing another one next year! : ) This year, we put the tree in the playroom, and it seems so perfect. David says we should leave it up all year...

 Dmitri with "the first Christmas gift," which he found under the tree after we had decorated it.

We built a train track around the tree...
Damon adores the lights.
I picked out the littles' yearly ornaments - something to represent what they enjoy, or a milestone from the year.

Dmitri's:

He loves Curious George. 

And Damon's:


His favorite thing is four-wheeler rides.

And I'm becoming a little frantic with my homemade gift list...some designated craft time is much needed. As soon as David gets a few more of his graduate school applications submitted this weekend, I need a break!

Are you ready and excited for the holidays?!
