It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Well, at least it is at our house!
Our Christmas tree went up November 11th and we are all in the Christmas spirit here now!  Here are a few photos from around our home.

 Our decorations waiting to adorn the tree.

I made these tontuu (elf) hats when we were first married.  In Finland (where Wendell served a mission for our church in 1979-81) everyone wears these at Christmas, so we wear them now when we trim our tree.  Here is Alex, Rebekah's boyfriend modelling one.

And here's our little Norah in hers.

The finished tree!

Some wonderful smelling potpouri

Here's the finished Christmas quilt that I made

Our gifts are all wrapped.  I just have a few homemade things to whip up and then the baking, which will be less than previous years.  I am so excited as our whole family will be together on Christmas day this year.  Adam & Alicia usually arrive Dec 27th, but this year they will come on Christmas Eve and be here for a few days!  It will be wonderful!
