Our First Christmas… A Peek

IMG_9941
This is our first Christmas in the our new home and I have to say that I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect Christmas. The decoration wasn’t grand, but I had the hubby home(for a change), plus there was the newest addition to our family; baby Ian and of course my other prince, Zion. Who could ask for more, right?

The hubby drew this scene on Zion’s chalkboard wall the night before Christmas.  Zion was thrilled to see it on Christmas morning! Also the hubby is the one who drew all the animals in the post about Zion’s playroom( I had a few queries about who the artist was).  He is the artist in the familySmile.

Can you guess which stocking is mine? Next year, I hope to be more creative and make my own stockings.

    I love that yellow door - you are such an island girl at heart;-)
    The artwork is very pretty - is it not nice to have an artist in the family?

    Unable to tell which sock is yours - sure you'll fill us in on that one, though. Happy to hear you are all happy in the new house. xx

  11. Thanks for visiting my little blog project - and yes, I love hearing the buggies go by the house most mornings. It's always interesting to go into the grocery store and see Mennonite women shopping while their husbands wait outside in the carriages.

    Love the art your husband created - how wonderful for your son to wake up to that on Christmas morning.

    Happy New Year.

  22. Stacey, I am very happy for you that you entire immediate family is with you for the Holidays!! Your house looks fantastic, and your husband is quite artistic. At first I thought you were doing the drawings because I know that some teachers can draw well. I wish for you and your family a prosperous New Year!!!
