getting ready for christmas

Brian wanted me to post his santa collection so Grandma and Grandpa Hand could see it in Idaho! :) So, there ya go, this is the start of the collection!!
These are some ornaments that Parker got for his first christmas in 2007. I can't believe I didn't write who they were from!! Can anyone help me out?

My favorite decoration at Christmastime is the Nativity my grandpa made. Every year I set it up, it makes me happy inside. Love and miss you gramp!! <3

We started a new tradition in the Steffen House.... Every year, our kiddos are going to make our tree topper, here is Parker putting "santa!" on this year:

And.... finally here is our little charlie brown christmas tree. (it looks a little better in real life) We got this tree as a hand me down from my parents a couple years ago.... Hopefully next year we'll either have a larger fake one OR a replantable one! :) We'll have to wait and see.
We don't dare put presents under it yet... they would all be opened for sure.

We're waiting to put our presents under the tree too! It's impossible to keep the little ones from opening them!!!
