hubby finally brought the stuff up last night. by the time i got some out, it was already 10:00...and i was pooped! i'm not happy with my mantle this year. it only slightly varies each year, so i think i'm ready for a change. i've been doing it the same way for 5 years now!! too late for a do over now, hopefully i can find some good clearance stuff for a re do next year! i'll post pics of the house when i'm all done--maybe by this weekend!! lol
i am verrry excited for christmas this year. with money being so tight for everyone, we've decided to focus on the kids. since i am the only one with kids, i find it even more exciting!! lol they are both at a very magical age. i don't think that either of them understands yet...heck, i'm not sure david has actually seen a picture of santa thus far, but just to watch the lights twinkle in their eyes is amaaazing! each night as the neighbors light up their yard(yep, we're behind on that too) david just stares out the window, like its the first night he's seeing it. emily loves when i sing her christmas songs--thank goodness, because lately, that's all i've been listening to!
