Purrrfectly Giftastic Hop

So excited to be taking part in the Purrrfectly Giftastic Christmas Blog hop!  Being hosted by the lovely

This is my favorite time of the year!  And not because I like getting gifts, but because I love spending time with my family.  My little guys are 5 and 2 this year and they are so excited.  I love seeing them enjoy the magic of Christmas.

Every year my hubby picks the "perfect" tree....  Well you would think its perfect since it takes him a whole hour to pick it out lol.  And every year the kids and I come home and decorate it right away... Even though the hubby complains we have to wait until the next day so the branches settle or something like that ;)!  After the tree is decorated we add our "special" ornaments.  They are special because each year my kids either buy or hand make a new one.  Its so amazing seeing my oldest, Brandon, compare his old ones to his newest one.  This is Quinn's first year making a hand made one.  I'm not 100% sure what it is, but he was so proud of himself when we hung it on the tree. 
After that we made hot chocolate with extra marshmallows and had a Christmas movie marathon!
So even though Christmas isn't here yet the magic it brings is def. alive in the Miller house.

So I bet you are wondering what I plan on giving away??  I gave this book away before on my blog.  Well not the same book I bought a new one, but you know what I mean.  Either way I love this book so much that I will be giving it away again.
