Magical Christmas Memories

Yesterday the kids went to Nana and Pop Pops and had there special christmas time with them alone, they make cookies, decorate the tree and nana's house, and then make a special christmas gift for mommy and daddy to have under the tree! After we picked the kids up we went to Aunt Vonnies for our special Christmas afternoon with her! Every year since I can remember- and Im 27, she has painted a ceramic house for her christmas village. She has made swingsets, cars, even tunnels for the train! Each year we get to help put the village up!! She even has a seperate santa's workshop and nativity scene!! We LOVE it! I have happy memories of doing this for christmas and now my children get to have that joy. Here are some pictures!!

Aww... what special memories you have and for your kids to have.

My garndparents (dad's parents) had these bubble lights on their Christmas tree until she passed in 1978. I had always want them light so that I could have a part of her. I did find them and they go on my tree every single year.
