On Sunday afternoon I decorated our mantel with the Christmas village my mother gave me a few years ago.  It was a nice quiet day with both kids napping at the same time.  The weather was getting colder outside and we were inside staying warm.  This was the last of the decorations that I wanted to get up in our home.

Tonight was a quiet evening at home with our kids. After dinner we spent time with them in our family room with the fire going. We turned on one lamp and left the other one off so that we could turn the lights on behind the village. The kids loved looking at the lights and homes on our mantel.  It was very warm and cozy in our home tonight.
