A Few of My Favorite Christmas Things

Nativities:

Hawaiian Coconut Creche and Costco Creche

Willow Tree Creche and Doug's Jerusalem Creche

Honeymoon Mexico Creche

Kid Friendly Creches. (I love the Little People version)

Christmas Cards:
(Especially when they come with a picture and/or letter)

After today, I need to start a new door.

Books:

Awesome gift from BFF Ang. The Jan Pienkowski illustrations are awesome.


"The Sweet Smell of Christmas"
I'm pretty sure this book is older than I am. The Scratch 'n Sniff stickers don't smell anymore, but I try every year anyway. Luckily I remember exactly what they used to smell like 20 years ago.

German Spinny Thing:

Doug got it on his mission. I really like it in theory...because it involves fire. But in actuallity, the propellers always fall off and we can't light the candles because we only have one set.

Ornaments:

Mayflower ornament. Ships in bottles are just really cool.

Handprint Santa: made by Max and (*sniff*) San Francisco Trolley


From my childhood. The rocking horse says "Emily 1978" on the other side. All of my siblings had a different one from Grandma Call.


I love Christmas!!!!!
