Get into the Christmas Spirit!

Christmas is in three days!  How exciting!  However, sometimes you can get overwhelmed with all of the busyness of getting ready for it that you can forget to enjoy the excitement of Christmas.  Here are some of our favorite things we like to do to get into the spirit!  
Wrap presents!  It's always exciting to wrap up gifts for our friends and family and the best part it putting them under the tree!

 Hang up our stockings!  It is quite simple, but just adding a colorful stocking to the fireplace makes it so much more exciting!
 Decorate the tree!  If you haven't already, then you need to do it!  And if you already have, add some more!  There is never to many ornaments on the tree. (Unless, of course, it falls over.) :)

 Wear some sparkle!  Sonali always likes to add a sparkly accessory to her outfit when it gets close to Christmas.  Something as simple as bow is perfect for sparkling up your entire day!
 Dress up in holiday attire and get your picture taken in front of the tree!
 Read your favorite Christmas stories (or watch movies of  them).  Our favorite is the story of the birth of Jesus, but we also really enjoy The Nutcracker.  What are your favorite stories?
Eat some candy canes!  Yum, yum, yummy!  Nothing screams more Christmas to us then the delicious and refreshing taste of a candy cane in our mouth.
While all of these are very fun and exciting things to do, we can't forget the true meaning of Christmas and the reason for the season.  Jesus Christ!  Who, was born in a stable and laid in a manger.  We hope you have a fantastic and amazing Christmas!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
The Adollable Dolls  
P.S.  We forgot to let you know, but Saige was added to our family in November!
P.P.S.  Stay tuned for a GIVEAWAY coming up soon to celebrate our one year blogoversary which is in ten days!

Setting Up the Christmas Tree

 Thanksgiving is over and it's that time of year to set up the Christmas tree!  Yay!  It is one of our favorite parts of getting ready for Christmas.  Cecile and I went to cut down the tree then Nadia, Elizabeth, and Tiana decorated it.

It was tons of fun!  Have you set up your Christmas tree yet?
