2010 Gratitude Challenge: Day 20: Christmas!

In the kitchen...
This one's going outside on the porch.
I'm so thankful for Christmas~the miracle of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  There are some fun traditions that come with this holiday~we decorate a tree, but more importantly, I've been blessed with several nativity scenes that I get to display~I love the reminder of Christ's humble earthly beginnings...Head HERE to read more uplifting stories of gratefulness!

Daughter decorated it this yr!

Good morning, SisterT. I love your Christmas trees! What fun! Thank you also for the links on Thanksgiving -- always looking for fun educational things like that for the children. Blessings to you today!

Love the Christmas ideas! You have beautiful trees.. I usually manage to get one tree up and my kids heavily laden it with ornaments. ; )

Beautiful trees. We love Christmastime here too, and put up lots of decorations the day after Thanksgiving.

I am in the mood for Christmas. We don't decorate until after Thanksgiving so I will be getting everything out next friday!

Pretty trees. I want to collect some nativities, they are one of my favorite decorations.

Oh, you're making me get antsy to get my Christmas decorations out. ;) We'll be taking down the fall decorations and putting up the Christmas decorations (at least starting) next Friday. I also get to start playing Christmas music - hubby says no Christmas music until after Thanksgiving dinner. lol!

I love to decorate for Christmas, too! I wish I felt the same enthusiasm when it comes time to take it all down. LOL! The boys and I did some cute crafts this afternoon, but I won't start putting anything up until the day after Thanksgiving. thanks for sharing the photos. I love to peek into everyone's lives.
