Merry and Bright

The Christmas season is finally upon us! Christmas is so much more magical when you get to celebrate it with your children. We are excited for for Julianna to understand so much more about Christmas this year, not just about Santa and presents, but about the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am so thankful that we have a wonderful church that is also working with the children to help their young minds understand what this season is really all about.

We LOVE Christmas around the Soto house! We started decorating before Thanksgiving- we usually wait until the day after. We just couldn't wait this year. Here's what we've been up to...

We picked out our very first real Christmas tree. It was quite the interesting experience trying to get it to stand up straight but nothing a little string and ingenuity can't fix.
We even busted out the Christmas lights for the outside of the house that we purchased when we just started dating. I love these lightbulbs!
And of course, the girls are dressing up festively. Christmas pj's, Santa hats, and red polka dots and stripes! I love it all!

Even our little small town is decorated for Christmas...
The most fun thing we have started this year is Elf on the Shelf. We have a girl Elf named Joy... more about her shenanigans coming soon!
May your days be MERRY and BRIGHT...
