it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... the stephens house!
better late than never, right? ;)
here's a little peek

sean got to put the first ornament on the tree- one he painted himself. it's a snowflake he painted pink and purple for mommy ;)

i'm sure most of you don't care, but here's a few of my favorites. (top-bottom, left-right)
1) i just LOVE these "smores" snowmen. i have a few of them and was soooo excited when i found this nativity one. i just think it's adorable!
2) this star is 1 of 4, that we were given as a gift before we got married. they are from cracker barrel and i just think they are so pretty!
3) this 'locket' one is from our first christmas together. it's so pretty and so sentimental
4) this is probably my favorite! i just adore anything willow tree, and dathan found this ornament which was perfect for our family!
5) so simple, yet such a strong statement. believe. i know most people put these out for santa, but i like to make a stand that i believe in Jesus, our Lord & Savior!

and to bring everyone back to the wonder of Christmas....

can't believe it's one week from today!

I love the ornaments and I especially love watching little children put them on the tree--that is magical!
