The first signs of Christmas

This year the Christmas season started out a little slow. We didn't jump right in after Thanksgiving and get the house decorated for Christmas, we didn't start an advent calendar and we didn't start watching Christmas shows right away.
Luckily we did do something to get things in the holiday spirit- my mom gave us a gingerbread house to decorate (and I had purchased one as well).
The girls loved it and worked really hard to make them as pretty as they possibly could. They were such perfectionists doing it and spent so much time. I was really proud of them and how much it meant to them to make them beautiful.

For a week and a half, this was the extent of our Christmas decorations.
