Hay ride to the tree plantation
Choosing our Christmas tree... It's hard to decide!
We found the one!
Hubby doing all the hard work! Someone has to take pictures, right? ;)
Tree is all wrapped up and ready to be taken home!
Decorating our tree together
We love this family tradition: our Acts of Service Christmas count down. Christ came to serve others, not to be served. Each day, our kids are challenged to bless others in some way. We want to instill in them a mindset of giving and serving not only on Christmas, but all year-round, so we use every opportunity to teach them.
If you would like to try this idea, follow this link for a free printable on the number tags.
Then, add in the back of each number simple acts of kindness like these ones: Hold the door for somebody. Write a letter to a deployed soldier. Sit with a new friend at school, etc. Ask your kids for ideas, too!
Christmas cards are starting to arrive!
Can't have Christmas without our Nativity set. Best wedding present ever!
I'd love to see your Christmas decorations this year. Would you share some pictures in the comments below?
17 more days until Christmas! Can't.Wait!
