Getting ready for Christmas

There is lots to do before the holidays! Decorating, visits with Santa and early gifts to open!

We want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to Carson' birthmom, Crystal for the personalized Christmas stockings. I've always wanted to get us personalized stockings and these are so special and so beautiful. Ok, I am NOT crafty at all, but I know how much work these took and want you to know how we appreciate them. They are truly so special to us and we will cherish them each Christmas to come!
