Welcome to our new home and first Christmas in Owasso. I have enjoyed the Christmas tour of homes in the past and thought I’d join in this year! After we decorated I was sad that not many people would be in our home this December, but alas! Problem solved!
We bought our tree the Christmas before children, but some of my favorite decos now are pictures of them. I also love pine cone things, handmade ones, D’s planes, and ones from our childhood trees. We have at least one ornament from every place we’ve lived. You can see Oklahoma, Texas and Mississippi in one of these pictures.
We have many Christmas traditions, starting with videotaping our decorating each year. Every so many years we watch them all. One of the most comical is from L’s first. He was sitting in the living room floor and just toppled over. M came by and pushed him back up! Such great brothers – they even enjoyed sitting on the couch together the other night reading Christmas jokes out loud. Before the season is over, we’ll use our Adornaments, various Advent calendars, go look at lights, make holly wreath cookies, watch a Christmas movie and enjoy time with family. I’m really excited too, our church is a Toys for Tots distribution site and we’re going to help as a family. Don’t forget to put a new unwrapped toy in the Toys for Tots boxes you see in your area. Every bit helps!
Thanks for coming by. Have a Merry Christmas!
