“That’s what Christmas is all about…


…Charlie Brown.” Yup, we had  Charlie Brown Christmas theme this year for our tea! Mom found Charlie Brown Nativity plates and napkins at Mardels, and she looked on Pinterest for decoration ideas. She’s pretty creative! Dec. 21st we had our family Christmas tea!
We were all together that evening!!DSC_1112DSC_1106DSC_1110
LOTS of amazing food!! We finished cooking all the goodies that afternoon.DSC_1122DSC_1140
After we stuffed ourselves ate, we sang some, shared some thoughts, then opened presents. DSC_1171

When it looks like this OUTside it sure makes me feel cozy staying INside! =) It’s pretty unusual for us to get this kind of weather in December and I LOVE it!!!

Yummy food to warm up the insides! =)
