Getting ready for Christmas

Since this is only our 2nd Christmas here (we went back to the States the past two years) it is very exciting getting ready for the holiday. The boys were so young last time ( in Christmas 2009 Jake was 21 months and Cameron just turned 4) so I don’t know if they remember all the hub-bub surrounding decorating, etc. Since we went back to the  US the last two years, we didn’t decorate our house or even get a tree, so this is very exciting for all of us.

We got our tree on the weekend, and it is proudly placed in the front window, for all the world to see.

We are having Christmas day dinner at our house, so we are also decorating around the house, candles, baubles and lights. Even though it is summer outside, the feeling of the Christmas season is felt inside. It’s all what you make of it.



  1. The tree looks fab! No decorations for us. I’m not that into it when I’m away from home.

    I do have a menorah though – but we won’t be here for Chanukah this year. so bygones.
