Decorating






Almost had to made new stockings this year,
 because I couldn't find the coordinating ones I made before,
eventually found these.
A lot of times I (Anna) wish I were as organized as  my mom.
Or that I could even remember what continent I left things on sometimes.


Made a new advent calendar this year.
The old one got wrecked.
This one still uses the ornaments from our book.
We like how it turned out.


Made these wooden snowmen when we were a family of four.
Now we have four kids. ;)

Making PB cookies
