It's crazy to think that Christmas is just around the corner. It's one of my favorite times of the year, so special and a magical season. It's my fave holiday to decorate for as well.

For us in our home Christmas is about celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. He is the center of everything we do, daily we are thankful for his saving grace, love, and provision. This season is also a time to reflect and take time out as a family to celebrate traditions, and make new memories.

Our Christmas traditions start out like most families by putting up the Christmas tree. There's something special and magical about this. Pulling out ornaments that you made as a child. Stringing each light on the tree till it's glows perfectly. Then standing back, turning off the lights to admire it in all its glory.
Every year I look forward to the small comforts and traditions of this season. The first snow fall. I used to love the first snowfall in Minneapolis. There's something amazing about a fresh blanket of snow that glitters off the lights from the city.

I miss snow on Christmas.

The last couple years we've enjoyed a fire in our fire place during the holiday season. Such a small little thing, but it becomes a holiday memory as we gather round it while sipping on hot cocoa or watching one of our fave holiday themed movies in front of it.

Plus stockings are so much more perfect hung on a pretty mantle.

This year we are looking forward to spending our first Christmas with family in three years. Ultimately this is what the holiday season and Christmas is all about. We're also looking forward to experiencing another Christmas with our daughter, she's older now than last year and I can't wait to see her be more involved and take in the JOY of Christmas.

It's also about creating new traditions for us as a family. I already have a slew of ideas for different things I want us to incorporate into our Christmas this year.

Spreading love and JOY about Christ.

Celebrating with family.

Those are our holiday comforts.
