At the Little House, we play the "Santa Game" where we techinically know that Santa is pretend, but we still go through the motions for fun.  That Jesus came so we could know God is the reason for the holiday and gifts, but Santa is how we remember others who gave so much.  I can tell sweet Faith is torn between what she knows and what she wants to believe.  She was thrilled to see Santa recently!

We've toured Christmas lights.

We been baking goodies almost every other day!

We've been reading lots of Christmas books,
I still can't get through this one without crying - every time!

We attended our church's performance of The Living Christmas Tree,

complete with flying angels and a live nativity.
My favorite were the herd of white horses in the heaven scene!

All the busy-ness makes for easy bedtimes! 

This Santa is almost done!  I'm treasuring this time to make memories with Jake, Faith and Caleb and enjoying the gusto with which they take on each experience.  Twinkling lights, advent calendars, hot chocolate and fireplaces are all exciting times for my crew.

Deck The Halls!

Welcome to our Little House!

It's all decked out for Christmas.

There are Christmas reminders everywhere and in every room.

These cuties make it all so magical.

And this is more reality ... Jake taking aim while we watch the Barbie Nutcracker movie.
