Every year daddy makes sausage rolls from scratch just like he and his dad used to do. Below Sierra helps daddy for the first time in 2008.
We love decorating our tree together. Here's some of our past trees full of many homemade and store bought ornaments but all of them have a special meaning.

ornaments...I just LOVE this fairy dog :)
I have a large one in my craft room too!
|Our 2011 Tree...some branches are heavy |
with multiple ornaments as the girls love
to add numerous ornaments to each branch
We always make gingerbread houses. Sierra and Aayla are so excited about our house from 2010
We buy or make at least one new tree decoration every year (in all honesty we usually end up with 3 or 4 every year). Here are some of my favourite ornaments from past years. I love unwrapping each ornament as we get ready to hang them.
Notice a theme? A lot of red, a lot of Santas, and mainly handmade ornaments.
This year we started a new tradition called "the Elf on the Shelf" and we LOVE our Elfie :)
Here are a couple pictures of the mischief our Elfie has been getting into

girls invitations to the north pole BC
We are having fun with this new tradition! I love his vintage feel and the book he came with is really a sweet story. It is so magical to watch the girls search for Elfie every morning and to see them talking to him throughout the day, telling him stories :)
What traditions do you have each Christmas? Are you in an RV this Christmas? How will you celebrate? decorate? I'm curious as this is our last Christmas in a typical "house" and next year we will be on the road and I would love to hear about some of your RV Christmas plans.
