'Tis the Season!

We are in full swing Holiday mode over here at the Simmons' house! This Christmas is already so much fun. Hannah is so excited about all of it! She loves the decorations, the songs and the stories.
Surprisingly enough, the nativity scenes are Hannah's favorite part so far. Its actually neat because she is learning the real story of Christmas and why we celebrate. The only downside is that baby Jesus does not get to stay in the nativity with Mary and Joseph as long as Hannah is awake. We have 2 Nativity scenes out where Hannah can see/reach them. One of them is actually hers, which she loves! So baby Jesus #1 and baby Jesus #2 go with Hannah wherever she goes. She also found my two favorite ornaments from my childhood, which happen to be baby carraiges. Put 2 and 2 together and now we have two baby Jesuses (how do you pluralize Jesus??) riding around in 2 miniature baby carriages all day long! I have pictures but let's start from the beginning!
We went to the farmers market the day after Thanksgiving and picked out our Christmas tree! Hannah loved it even though it was raining/misting. One of her favorite things was holding the umbrella "all by myself" ! So what if Mommy and William were getting soaked?!? Ahh...the joys of a 2 year old! =)
Hannah hamming it up in the trees!
The little man. I think this is his first camo/redneck baby shot!
Now, onto decorating the tree!!! A very excited Hannah putting the star up with Daddy! (Yes, I did almost have a heart attack when I saw Hannah on Jason's shoulders while Jason was on a step ladder!!!!)
Hanging the first ornament
William, doing his part!
Last, but not least, here is Hannah with her Jesus(es)!
Baby Jesus, riding in style!
Merry Christmas everyone!!!
