I can't believe it's my 100th post! WOW.
I'm getting SO SO excited for Christmas! I only have 3 more days of work and a few classes to teach before we head to the main land for Christmas. I still have So much shopping to do. Ridiculous right!? Anyways I finally have some time to blog so I thought I'd share some Christmas traditions and decorations in my house!
Starting last year I made paper snow flakes, remember making those?! I did it again this year with a pal, and I think I'd like to keep making them in the years to come. :) We used this video to help us remember how to do it! Haha.
Here's our Christmas town! I talked about this in a previous posting, but here's a picture of it completed. My Mom bought us the Christmas Shop last year, and this year I bought a little shopper and a few shrubs. The buried car is an ornament that I painted haha. Can't wait to extend the town. You should see my Moms, it's amazing!
Cute little poinsettia! See me?! Haha.
Our Wreath!! Last year I started the tradition of hand making our wreath. It's really easy, and lots of fun. This year I trimmed the bottom of our Christmas tree, and used those branches to form a circle. I used floral tape to secure the branches together, and then I hot glued on the bows, and glitter glued on the sequins. To finish the wreath I added some red ribbon all around, it helped to clean up any strays. Simple, and fun.
The Tree! Always a tradition in our house, we like to have a real one! Smells SO nice :)

Got together with a couple gal pals and we decorated gingerbread men! I think I`d like to make it tradition to either decorated a house, or gingerbread men :) So it`s a new tradition starting this year!
Christmas cards hanging on our prayer flags, Thanks for the cards Friends and Family! So much love!!!
Lastly I promised I'd show all of the cookies I received from the Cookie Swap, a big thank you to all of the ladies that sent cookies to me, and also to Julie and Lindsay for putting the swap together, what hard work!!
