Christmas 2012 recap

Little late, but here are some pix of Christmas at Our Country Home 2012

Sara decorated the tree mostly by herself...the boxes came out of the attic and she took over.

These gorgeous teapot and cup ornaments were a gift from my MIL in 2011 so this is their first Christmas on the tree...I had intended to put them on the 3ft tree by themselves but the head decorator (see above) informed me other wise.

Lovely new handmade piece curtsy of Sara's wonderful teacher...adore this one so much and know it will just be more and more precious as time goes on.

I had to let go of my control freak ways...the ginger bread house by Sara and Daddy...*twitch twitch*
Notice how little it looks like the inset photo from the box.

Sara gave Santa her wish list 4 TIMES...this was at her school Christmas Party.

Gifts got unwrapped

Hugs exchanged

Mom was humored with a family photo on my Christmas Set...we were family number 23 to use it this yr.

Then we spend the day chilling and playing with all the new toys.

Blessings Kelsie

PS: Since we attend church regularly ,Sunday school, Awana and Sara is already in choir, she knows the real reason for Christmas is to give thanks and celebrate the birth of our Savior...So though my photos depict the more mainstream parts of Christmas, we did not forget the reason for the Season.

Letting go is never an easy thing, but I adore how you encourage Sara!!! My grown son made my Christmas Day special with his enthusiasm about the package decor!!! One just never knows!!!
