  1. I always put my Christmas tree and decorations up before 15th December. Why? My daughter was born on that day and I was finally allowed out of hospital on Christmas Eve, so I always think of her as my special Christmas gift. She was the child I was never supposed to be able to conceive, and then not supposed to be able to carry. She was three weeks early and weighed a hearty 8lb. This December 15 she will turn 20 years old – and I still look at her and think she is the most precious gift I have ever been blessed with.

  2. It is such an exciting season and so wonderful to celebrate with family – especially little ones. What a fun post!!! I’m ready to play my Christmas music now!

  3. Me too! I love Christmas! And I love Lisa Leonard’s beautiful designs!
    I wish I could purchase something for both my teen girls and myself!
    So sweet!
