christmas with mcphees






first we'll make snow angels for two hours, then we'll go ice skating, then we'll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookie-dough as fast as we can, & then we'll snuggle {Buddy the Elf}: mr. mcphee & i set up our tree on nov. 30th {but i haven't been the best blogger as of late} & it is beautiful! i love my christmas tree. this year we have a fakie {last year our tree was real} & its a good thing. miss nora was a little apprehensive about our tree at first {just stand & stare} but as these december days fly by, she has gotten braver. {my ornaments have moved higher & higher & the lights have been pulled from the bottom layer}. i am positive there would be sap & pine needles stuck to my babe's hands if it weren't for martha stewart's fakie christmas tree. {thank you martha}


i love the christmas season.
i love being with my two mcphees.
i love christmas lights dangling from homes.
i love decorating my home.
i love nativity scenes.
i love my parents house during the holidays, especially their fireplace crackling with heat.
i love spending time with loved ones from near & far.
i love drinking hot chocolate.
i love space heaters & warm footed jammies.
i love getting christmas cards in the mail {ours will be out after the new year}.
&
i love watching christmas movies {couple of my favorites:
Muppet's Christmas Carol &
Home Alone}.

it truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

the best way to spread christmas cheer,
is singing loud for all to hear.
