Only NINE days left until Christmas. NINE. Can you believe it?
Thank you all so much for sending your favorite Christmas carols my way. I uploaded (or is it downloaded) all the songs I could find to our play list. Unfortunately, it is a limited selection.
But nevertheless, enjoy!
Today, have a look around the Crenshaw home. We aren’t glamorous over here, but I love our Christmas-y abode.
Oh Christmas Tree…
…Oh Christmas Tree.
Sunday morning as I sat drinking coffee with Jesus, this baby came crashing down. It was a horrendous sound. And sight. We lost at least half of our ornaments. Some of which were treasures. Little boys were devastated. But after a trip to Duncan Donuts and a Tree Trimming trip to Walmart, we are back in business. I think I like it better the second go around.
P.S. I tried the “spray on snow” this year. Cheesy, I know.
Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall. ~Larry Wilde, The Merry Book of Christmas
Instead of making a ton of candy this year, I am making homemade granola! Yum. Thank you Family Fun.
Oh, ho the Mistletoe, hung where you can see….
Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Luke 2:10
My absolute favorite thing.
I know it may be a lot to ask, but if you would like, I would love to post a few of your favorite things. If you have pictures you’d like to share, send them as an attachment in an email. They will post here on our next blog. How fun!!

If this is too much trouble (we are all so busy right now!!) post a comment telling us about a few of your favorite things at Christmastime.
“From Home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another. The warmth and joy of Christmas, brings us closer to each other.” Emily Matthews
I am so thankful for you today. So so thankful.
My favorite thing is definitely the Christmas tree lit! I love it, I wish I could keep it up year round. I like to sit in the living room and just look at it all lit up! I love the lights! Merry Christmas dear friend!
My favorite things are the kids' ornaments. They get a new one each year, and it normally has something to do with what they're loving that year. For instance, this year, Elizabeth actually made an origami crane, and Cody turned a couple of LEGOS into ornaments. Usually, we buy something that they love, but they were creative this year! 🙂 They now get to hang their own ornaments, too, so I love looking at the tree & seeing where they thought the perfect place was for each one!
Easch kid has their own tree in their room. My son's is a white 4 ft tree and it has a bit of a retro feel to it with silver garland. My daughter has a little 2 ft tree that is super girly and modern like her. Bright pink ornaments. I let them decorate them so the tree may look a bit ornament heavy on one side or they may all have the same type of ornament but it is their treee and they have fun decorating it. They also get an new ornament each yr that goes on the main tree which when they move out they will then have all those to decorate their own tree. That is what decorates my tree all the ornaments I got growing up.
