At the first part of November, I asked my dad if he would build me a table for our entryway. I found the plans at Knock off Wood and then he revised them to his own liking. He delivered it the week before Christmas. I seriously LOVE this table. My kids have been warned that they are not to touch it and they aren't allowed to open the front door unless I am standing there. Here are some pics:

My dad cut this out for me and then I painted all the pieces. The kids love playing with it and it is a perfect way to explain the real reason of Christmas to them.
This is what it looks like all put together.

This year I knitted the kids mitten ornaments. I wrote down their favorite things and put a picture of each of them inside their ornaments. They wanted to take them off the tree and wear them - at least I know they like them!
