It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around the Armstrong house.

The tree is up, decorations out, Christmas music playing 24/7, and  a cinnamon spice candle burning. I just love this time of year. I love the real meaning of this season, Jesus' birth. I love shopping for, wrapping and giving gifts. I love singing Christmas music with Brandon as we cook dinner. It's all so beautiful and special. All-of-it.

This year it is a little different though.

This year we have a little girl to share this special time with. We get to begin teaching her why we celebrate Christmas. We get to read her stories about baby Jesus and Santa Claus. We get to fill an extra stocking. We get to open presents with her, dance to Jingle Bells, and start our family-of-3 traditions. To say the least: I-am-excited.

Sweet December please take your time. Let us soak you up and enjoy every second.

What is your favorite thing about this season?


  1. My favorite thing is watching Christmas movies with all the lights off in the house, except the tree lights! Also, singing Silent Night at church! Your tree is super cute!

  2. Love your tree! There is nothing like starting new traditions when you have your own kids! I'm so excited to introduce the season to our little girl and start talking about the meaning behind it all with our 3 year old. Kids just multiply the joys. :)
