Sunday we went to the farmer's market from our hometown.
We looked at all the Christmas trees but ended up going home with a sprig of mistletoe and some fresh pine garland.
Jerome hung the mistletoe for me and the kids laugh when we stand under it because we always kiss. Unfortunately it being a fresh mistletoe and our house being warm and cozy, it is already wilting away. I still love having it there anyway.
I knew when I painted the chalkboard on the wall that I wanted to do something like this at Christmas. I had planned to put the "Twas the night before Christmas" story on there but I chose this scripture instead.
Each year we go over this scripture with our kids, they have all almost memorized it.
I love how the fresh pine makes our home smell like Christmas. I just hope the pine garland will last until Christmas!
