These are a few of my favorite things :)

It's hard to believe that Christmas day has come and gone!  The busy, crazy and almost out of control preparations are done!  What didn't get finished didn't ruin the day!  I am sorry if you didn't get a Christmas card from me.  I am sorry I didn't have a chance to call or visit everyone I wanted to.  We barely got the tree up and decorated before Christmas...really :)  I didn't get to decorate outside like I wanted to.  I never hung the icicle lights on the deck...bummer....they are so pretty and I enjoy looking at them!!! 
With all of that said...I do plan on enjoying the tree for a few weeks.  I love looking at the ornaments and I thought I would share some of my favorites with you...

Here is the tree in our living room.....

I love the stars that shimmer...remind me of the star lighting that first Christmas night.....

My sock monkey ornament from my wonderful husband :)

Another fun monkey he got me last year....In case you missed it... I like monkeys :)

And a curious George on a bike!  Biking is another one of my favorite things :)

These guys make me smile everytime I see them.  Its a snowman surrounded by snowman heads :)

And my favorite part of the tree.  This is my favorite Christmas tradition since I was litte.  We always but the manger under the tree.  Keeps the focus on Jesus!!!  He was, is and will always be the greatest gift I have ever received!!!!
"Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!" 2 Corinthians 9:15

~ May your new year be filled with Jesus ~
