We got our tree and all of our Christmas decorations put up today except the wreaths on the front of the house! We went to Starbucks first thing this morning for some coffee and pastries. When we got home we started pulling out all the boxes and got busy decorating. I have to admit that this is not one of my favorite activities, but it helps when there are lots of people pitching in. Steve, Laura and I did most of it, though, because everyone else had appointments. Ashley and John got their engagement pictures made today. I will show you the link when they are ready! I caught them right as they were walking out the door and had them pose for me real quick! :)
And Lindy got her hair cut today. I think it looks really cute!
We also took a few pictures for our Christmas cards. That is my project for tomorrow. I am going to go get the Christmas cards made.
I will wait to show you all the decorating because I think I am going to do Boo Mama's Christmas Tour of Homes!
As I was putting all my ornaments on the tree today, I was thinking about how glad I am that I have lots of ornaments with the kids' pictures in them through the years. They are nothing fancy or elaborate...lots of them are just made out of felt or popsicle sticks. But they are the sweetest ornaments on the tree. I just love looking at them. If you have babies or small children, make sure to take lots of pictures and make them into ornaments. You will love looking at them every year!
Today is Steve's mom's 69th birthday. We went to his house and had pizza and cake and ice cream with his family. She has been a wonderful mother to five children and lots of grandchildren! I am thankful to her for raising such a wonderful son who treats me so well and takes such good care of our family. Happy Birthday Granny!!
