It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!

It has been crazy around here lately. Between the Christmas parties, shopping, baking, overtime, and having 2 toddlers, we have done nothing around the house lately. I was hoping we would have had the crown moulding up in the bathroom by now, but I’m giving us until mid january to finish it up. HA  We did do some decorating this weekend. I think it’s looking real pretty over here!

It’s a real tree! A Douglas Fir (I think). It smells wonderful, but doesn’t hold nearly as many ornaments as our fake one did. Jon likes it though, he always said I’d never leave a branch without an ornament. It looks pretty and simple and we were able to pick out the special ornaments that we loved. The kids also made a bunch. They had a ball! I bought little wooden Moose at Pat Catans a few mounts ago. They were .25 cents each and my original plan was to spay them with chalkboard paint and use them as gift tags, but Amelia asked it she could paint them, so now we are using the sticker tags on gifts! haha

Pretty darn cute! I think Amelia’s favorite part was sprinkling them with glitter.. I’m creating a monster there!!

We didn’t do as much as we normally do, but I think it all still looks fun and festive for the kids. They are so excited for Santa! Amelia wants everything under the sun! Last week we were watching tv and a commercial for a craftsman power drill came on and she screams “OO I need that!” haha We’ll have to see what Santa brings! I hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas Season!
