Last year at Christmas time, I remember thinking about Mary's life in a whole new way. It was really surreal to be pregnant and feeling some of the things she must have felt. I can't even fathom how she must have felt knowing she was raising the Savior of the world. My prayer is that I would have the attitude she had when she said "'I am the Lord's servant,' Mary answered. 'May it be to me as you have said.'" Luke 1:38
Well, this is how our house looks at Christmas time. I absolutely love this time of year and now that we have little Hudson it is even that much better. I love seeing life through his eyes.

And this year we have 3 stockings, all hand knit by Grandma Collins! After Christmas I am going to personalize each one. I am going to get a white letter monogrammed on each one and I think on the boy's stockings I will sew on wooden buttons. On my stocking, I am planning on pinning on a crystal brooch or mabye I will sow on a few pearls.
