Yesterday we got the Christmas decorations out (while listening to the BYU game -terribly festive :P ). It doesn't seem like I have that many decorations now that it's spread through my house instead of a small apartment. I'm thinking a few more strands of lights will help. I'm of the opinion that you can't have too many white lights.
I love nativity scenes and they are a large part of my decorations. I set up a few of them yesterday and still had a couple without a spot. This morning I came down the stairs to see that Elijah had been playing with one of my sets and created his own little scene.

Sam wanted in on the action (because we don't use colored pencils very often. They are saved for special projects). He too used the nativity as a model and this is his picture. I love the manger with baby Jesus and all the hay.
