Our Christmas in a recap:
1. For years I've wanted to do white linen stockings. I couldn't find what I pictured in my head so I decided to make them myself. Ruffles for the girls and folded down for the boys. So happy how they turned out.

2. Dropped off Summer at a friend's house for a "tacky xmas sweater" party. I only had one request - it had to be handmade, not store bought. I think she delivered. Priceless.

3. We went to the tree lot last night and it literally took us 5 seconds to pick our tree. It's now covered in sparking lights, collected ornaments and my personal favorite, the ornaments they've made over the years in school {the paper angel tree topper was made by Forrest when he was 3 in preschool}

4. A subtle hint for Santa to stop at our home.

5. My sweet Summer's room with her homemade wreath. I provided the supplies and a quick how-do and she created it on her own.

6. One of the kids' favorite Christmas traditions is decorating their rooms and putting on their Christmas flannel sheets. Summer's bed turned out extra cute this year.

7. Forrest cracks up EVERYTIME he reads the part, "he was a chubby and plumb, a right jolly old elf".

8. Christmas Eve {cookies, milk and notes for Santa}

9. Merry Christmas!
