Decorating for Christmas

"And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn."
Luke 2:7

This past Sunday we did something different from the usual Sunday evening routine:  we set up our Christmas decor and nativity!   We normally set everything up the Saturday after Thanksgiving but it didn't work out this year.  (By the way, I have no pictures of our wonderful Thanksgiving because I forgot to grab my camera. :-( )   

Once we arrived home from a fun birthday party that afternoon, we got all the boxes of Christmas stuff out of the storage cubbies in the girls room.  We dragged all 3 boxes down the stairs and then opened them up and started taking down our current decor and putting Christmas stuff up in its place! :) 

One box of our Christmas goodies!

Eden helped make sure our LED lights were still working. :)

(We put these trees in our nativity scene.)

Placing everything just perfect... ;)

Hannah popped all the popcorn for us as we set everything up.  Thanks, Banana!

Sadly, I don't have a full picture of our manger scene so I can't show you the final product.  But, if I get a picture of it and have time to post it (doubtful...), I'll add it to the bottom of this post.  :)
