Pretty presents

Thought I would take a moment to share a photo of our Christmas tree. Parker looks at it and says "hot, hot" and is fascinated by the ornaments that hang from the branches. We are blessed to celebrate Christmas, and are thankful for:

The story of Jesus
Family
Money to buy gifts
Time off from work
Eating our favorite christmas treats
A warm place to live
BELIEVING!

Here's a sneak peek at the presents too - I've really been into silk florals lately, and adorned our packages with them this year :) I feel like I'm ready for Christmas now - the cards are mailed, my shopping is finished, and there are 8 days until Santa comes! I just have to remember the milk & cookies and stocking presents!

Wow! Your tree is so adorable! I love it and your presents look like they came out of a picture book. You are one crafty lady! Does Parker leave the presents alone? Maddie's done well with leaving the presents...it's the ornaments that she thinks she needs to take off the tree and play with. :)
