Christmas Time is Here!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, we're into the full Christmas swing of things. This weekend we were at Grandma and Grandpa's house, and we went with them to cut down a Christmas tree, then we helped them decorate it, too. We drove around and checked out several Christmas light displays, also; Landon's loving all the lights.

We've started decorating our own house, and he's very excited that we have lights on the outside of our house. Soon (probably tomorrow) we'll go get our own tree.

Tonight we started our Advent calendars. We have two this year. We saved one from last year; it's a chain of animals, and we add one animal each day. I also bought a new open-the-flap kind this year. Both of our calendars focus on various names for Jesus.

I got out our pile of Christmas books, and we started reading some of them today. I have a list of Christmas books we've enjoyed here, and I plan to add more soon as we discover new ones this year.
