Kris Kringle Tradition and other weekend shenanigans

Davids family has a pretty sweet Christmas tradition. On the eve of the first Sunday in December, the kids set out a pair of shoes and Kris Kringle comes to fill them with small present and sweets! The tradition originated  a long long time ago back in Holland. Papa Olsen served his mission in Germany where they too celebrate Kris Kringle and Davids family has done ever since!

 It was so fun to wake up this morning and find a NEW pair of shoes filled with German chocolate and other little gifts! I can't wait to carry this tradition of with our future family.

Kris Kringle has a good taste in shoes
That chocolate was tempting me all morning before Church!

This weekend we did some more Christmas shopping and celebrated my girl Rachels 22 birthday at Big Judds. I was super stoked to go because i've never been before!


The burgers were OK the ice cream sucked and the fries weren't to shabby. Nothing to write home about. haha. David got sick almost immediately after finishing his burger so he wasn't to thrilled. 



Earlier that day  we were Christmas shopping for our first stockings, and we came across the following...

A rad pair of antlers. Next years Christmas cards hahahaha
 A duo of fashionable feathers trees. 

 An overpriced berry wreath

and this awesome-spice sparkle mirror. 

We found some beautiful stockings and now our little apartment is filled with Christmas cheer!
Our wee little Christmas Tree! 

 How beautiful is that stocking?

I love love love everything about this season. The yummy smells, the beautiful colors, the oh so delish baking, the music and the cold weather. Although this will be my frist Christmas ever away from my family, I am so happy to be celebrating our first Christmas together.

Kris Kringle is one of my favorite holiday traditions! I remember how excited I was as a little girl when I went to bed on the 5th. Waking up and seeing your shoes filled with sweets was amazing.
And your Christmas tree is so cute!
