Gotta love Christmas time!

I just LOVE the Christmas season. Yes, it is full of hustle and bustle but I love to decorate, bake, shop and see the wonder and joy on the faces of my children.

Riley and Bella both still believe in Santa. I think this may be the last year for Riley but Bella should have a few years left. We have magical elves that visit us every Christmas time. Bixie and Trixie come all the way from the North Pole to spend the month of December with us. They have been coming for about 4 years now. During the day the make sure the kids are behaving and at night they go back to the North Pole to report to Santa on how the kids are doing. Riley and Bella love their elves and look forward to them coming every year!

We have been busy as usual this holiday season. Ryan's new restaurant opened last weekend (more on that in another post) and Riley just started basketball practice last week. But, we have still found time to get the house decorated, tree up, presents wrapped and have even baked some biscotti! Yum! Next up is baking more holiday cookies and making gingerbread houses. Should be lots of fun!
Here are some photos of the house all decorated and the kids decorating the tree:

LOVE the decor, your house looks beautiful. I really like the front door entry way. :)
All 3 of my big kids know about Santa. What a bummer, huh?! It takes a small bit of the magic out of it. Keep 'em going as long as you can!!!! Love to you all!
