Stockings

This is the first year that Judah is actually able to enjoy anything about Christmas. I wouldn't say that he understands it yet but, he does think the Christmas tree is pretty, he loves looking at Christmas lights and I'm sure he'll love opening presents. We've talked a little about Christmas being Jesus's Birthday and I know he doesn't understand it but, it still feels like it's the right thing to do.

We've also mentioned Santa Claus. In my family, we never "believed" in Santa. I knew the presents were from my parents and that Santa was a fun pretend thing. However, it was very different in my husbands family. He believed in Santa when he was little. They left cookies out for Santa and carrots for the reindeer.

I don't think either family was necessarily "right" or "wrong" with the whole Santa Claus thing. I think it's just important to really know the true meaning of Christmas and as long as Judah knows that, then I'm just fine with him believing in Santa, I'll even encourage it. :)

So anyway...since this is his first year enjoying Christmas, I decided to have Judah & Paisley's names put on their stockings. I think they turned out SO cute and next year I'm going to have mine and my husband's done as well.

  2. Cami,
    I got the stockings done at the Eagle's Nest. I love that place! They've done a couple things for me and it's always really affordable and I think they do a great job. Plus, the ladies there are super nice. Merry Christmas!
