Merry Christmas to you!

Christmas Eve tradition in my house is eating food and watching "The Muppet Christmas Carol" - which is by far my favorite Christmas movie. The music is spectacular, the story is funny but classic, Michael Caine is Scrooge, and it just never gets old. And they are Muppets! Highly recommended. I love Christmas Eve. What's your favorite Christmas tradition? I would love to know!

I promised a look at my house on Christmas. :)



Another tradition we have is getting a new Hallmark ornament every year. It's really fun now to look back at my ornaments and see what I liked in a certain year. For most of the 90's, my younger brother and I would get similar Disney ornaments, and we ALWAYS hang them near each other on the tree, on purpose. For example:




Lately, I've been collecting the Precious Moments Disney ornaments every year. This year's is Tinker Bell, and I can't wait to open her up and hang her on the tree next to these two! I guess ornaments are one of the most special parts of Christmas to me (besides being with family, of course). And those chocolate chip cookies for Santa are yummy... :) Below is Ariel, and Cinderella and her Prince Charming.


This is one of my very first ornaments, which I was obviously too little to remember receiving:

And finally, here is the little tree in my room, which is actually the tree Mike, my fiance, bought me two years ago (has it already been two years?) This is our fourth Christmas together. We love sitting in my room and just looking at it. Very peaceful. :)


Have a very Merry Christmas, everyone! Enjoy your family time and the quiet peacefulness that Christmas always seems to bring.
