Only a year and a half left to go in high school!!! Whohoo! :D
So last night, my mom, sister and I were at home and we decided to (finally) get our Christmas decorations up. We've been meaning to do so for a little while now, but something always seemed to come up! It was really fun to take everything out of the box and decorate! We've put up our tree, stockings, nativity scene, and other various decorations. A funny story about our nativity scene: Something that kind of bothers my dad about the Christmas story that is told most often is that the three wise men couldn't actually have been there when Jesus was born....they arrived about two years later due to their journey. So whenever we set up our nativity scene, we put the wise men on another table across the room to represent the fact that they were on their way to Bethlehem. Is there anything that your family does differently than most on Christmas? Besides the whole nativity scene thing, we also have a pickle ornament that our parents hide in the tree on Christmas morning. Whoever finds it first gets a special prize (usually something small in our family!). My sister found it last time so I am determined to find it this year! :D
There's our little Christmas tree!! You can't tell in the picture, but it is pretty wobbly so we had to tie it to those bars on the window with some thread to make it stay! :D
Well that's about it for today....
What are ya'll doing this weekend??
