New Years Eve Camp In

We are ringing in the new year with a camp in. All the elements of a camp out, only in the comfort of our living room. We are going to set up a tent, lots of fluffy pillows, blankets, play games, watch movies, etc.

How cute is this tent from Lucy & Michael! Handmade right here in Houston.

I hope you have a fabulous new year! See you next year!

December wrap up

I have been out of the loop this month. December was filled to the brim with preparing for Christmas,family and I suffered a massive sinus infection that resulted in a ruptured eardrum. Aside from the ear injury, this Christmas was wonderful. Our sweet baby girl, who by the way is two going on thirteen, was a joy! E saw Santa, and with sobs and tears, mustered up enough courage to yell out what she wanted for Christmas. She became fond of the various yard decorations in the neighborhood, and was sad to see them miss shape on the ground during the day. She decorated the tree just so, and sang jingle bells at the top of her lungs! She learned the word “mine!” but also learned that it is fun to give presents as well. She marveled at the presentation of the milk, cookie and carrots for Santa and his reindeer. And she listened and laughed at my reenactment of the Christmas story, with her nativity play set. We had a great time and I hope you had a very Merry Christmas as well!

Snow Day in Houston!

Here comes Christmas!

It's the first of December and our halls are fully decked out with Christmas cheer. Stay tuned for a Christmas home tour in the coming days.

This year we are starting a few new traditions.

First we are celebrating the birth of Jesus by making him a birthday cake. We thought this would be a good way of teaching E about the true meaning of Christmas. She is fully aware of her birthday, as we just celebrated it, and seems excited about the cake!
Second, on Christmas eve we are making a point of reading Luke 2, the story of the birth of Jesus.
Last, in honor of hubby's Polish heritage, we are breaking the Oplatek wafer. This is a Polish tradition of blessings to friends and family and remembering what Christmas is all about.

What traditions do you and your family enjoy at Christmas?
