So far it's just our tree and stockings but I'm hoping to find my candles, knick knacks and stuff tomorrow. B and I are in a disagreement with the ourdoor lights; I want new ones and he wants to use the one from last year (which are LED and look blue...I hate that!). But I digress. On to the things we did do...
Bubba was extremely excited to start decorating the tree! (which is new, are old one didn't light up...B won this one, we ended up with a multi-colored LED tree). This is the first year that we decorated the tree with the kids. Usually we put it up and have it decorated after they go to sleep and they wake up to the surprise. We decided they were big enough to help and other than having a very bottom-front heavy tree, they did great!
Pooks reminiscing about Tito
Sweetcheeks hanging up an ornament
Love their feet, especially Peanut's reindeer feet
They did awesome! Minimal arguing/pushing and lots of helping and compliments
and thanks to a self-timer, a family picture
don't mind my visible awkwardness, i had just ran and jumped behind the boys to be in the pic
After decorating the tree, the boys feasted on eggnog and sugar cookies while I read "How the Grinch Stole Christmas".
Then today, we walked down to our community park and met Santa and Ms. Claus. Bubba asked for a Lightning McQueen, Pooks asked for an Ambulance and a Tow Mater, Peanut asked for Tow Mater as well. We have all those toys already but apparently not enough...
