its beginning to look a lot like christmas...finally

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! 

today is a big day for both of them.  emily is having her holiday party at school, and santa is on the guest list!  holy cow, my kids are going to MEET SANTA!  i'll crap a candy cane if someone doesn't cry! lol  but i'm looking forward to it!  hopefully i'll get a pic or two to share!  hubby and i are more excited this year than ever before.  i think kids just bring that magic out in anyone. 

here's one from last year...david just noticed the snow for the first time!


  1. I can't wait to get my Christmas stuff out - maybe today. We'll be getting our tree on Saturday. My little Peanut's still too young to really understand things, it's so much fun for me, though!

  2. Yay!!! Meeting Santa, so fun! So glad to see you back. :)

  3. Cute picture! I hope they have fun meeting Santa!

  4. My gosh, how do they change so stinking much in a simple year? Look how tiny he looks!
