My Christmas Decorations

Hey everyone! I hope you guys have had a wonderful Christmas! I've taken a small break, as you guys know, to celebrate and spend time with my family. Even though I'm sharing them a day late, I hope you like our Christmas decorations!
Before I get started, I would like to answer a reader's question: What is a Jesse tree? Well, Clara, sadly we did not get to do a Jesse tree this year due to all the illness in my family this December, but I'll include this link and hopefully it'll paint a clear picture in your mind of what a Jesse tree is. :) I'm hoping to make one next year!
How to make a Jesse tree  
Now on to the decorations!

This is a delicious snack I had last week. Mmm...it was so good!
I even put gingerbread marshmallows in my hot cocoa. ;)

Our first Christmas tree. We put our Christmas trees in the schoolroom, so our cats aren't let in that room during the holiday season. They have a tendency to climb in it and chew on the branches. :P

This is our family Christmas tree. Each of us get a new ornament every year for Christmas.
This year I got Merida. (A Disney princess from the movie Brave)

Outside decorations

Our gingerbread houses. The one in the front on the right is mine.

Here are more Christmas decorations outside.

And here's how it looks from the road. This is a pretty bad picture. :P
They all look yellow, but they're colourful as you can see in the individual pictures. :)

My bed with a few of my Christmas things. I love that Vanilla Noel lotion from Bath and body works! :)

Our ninja bread cookies! They were really fun to make. :)
The side with the E on the top of the wrap are my sister Emma's cookies she decorated, and the side with D are the ones my brother Drake decorated.

All the ones on this pan are mine except for the 3 in a row in the middle. Those are Drake's.
Quite a few of mine turned out to look a little like maniacs. Haha. :)
Well, I hope you guys have a beautifully blessed day!
And I will do better about keeping up with blogging, we do have 4 birthdays coming up in the next 2 months though, one of them being mine!! :)
I'll be 15!

4. Have a funny Christmas photo shoot.
5. Have a "fancy dress code" for dinner one night.
6. Make Christmas cards for a local children's home.
7. Visit an elderly home, and hand out homemade cookies and carol.

My Life 2//Nature Pictures!

Hey everyone!
Sorry, I haven't been around lately. Crazy things have been going on around our house!
I'm getting over a cold, and so is most of my family. And our pipes had to be dug up in front of the house because a tree root had grown into the pipes, so...yeah. We couldn't flush the toilet, and run any other sort of water in the house (washer machine, dish washer, shower, etc.) so that was no fun. Luckily it's all over. The dirt everywhere from where they dug up the pipes isn't so pretty with our christmas decorations though. :/
So to good news! We got our christmas trees up! Yay! I'll have to post a picture of them soon. Maybe I'll do a post of our christmas decorations....
So this is why I haven't posted lately. Haha.
I'll be having a couple of tags, and some christmas posts up soon though. ;)
Now here are some nature pictures for your viewing pleasure:

                                                         Purple's my favourite colour. :)

I just love this picture.

Isn't this picture cute?


Wow, this is beautiful!
Thank you everybody for stopping by!
I am going to try to do better about blogging more frequently, I have just been so busy with everything going on here.
Have a beautifully blessed day!
P.S If I don't get to responding to your comment within a couple of days, don't worry because I respond to every single comment when I have the time. ;)
