We put up our decorations the weekend after Thanksgiving, but I have been to busy to post the pictures!
This was Alisha's way of helping with the decorating, playing guitar, and texting!
There we go, now she's helping!
Andrew loved all the ornaments we put on the tree!
Every year we all give each other ornaments. I bought some for Andrew when we were in Kyrgyzstan since we were there at their Christmas, however I want to save those for when he gets bigger and understands where they are from. However, I thought this ornament for Andrew was perfect. I told Andrew when we gave it to him," that last year we packed our bags right around Christmas time, got on a plane, and traveled around the world to get him". How perfect!
It's so pretty! I wish I could touch it!
I've had the worse time of it with the lights this year. First of all none of the lights on the Christmas tree were working. So we got all new ones for the tree. Then I have this garland that I put around our door outside, and when I got that out the lights were out on it. I then put a working set of lights on it and then that went out. So then I bought two brand new strands for the garland and I got it hung up, and then half of a strand went out. That's it I'm not taking it down, and I'm not fixing it!
This is as good as it got at 8pm at night to get a family picture for the Christmas card!
Andrew has his sisters wrapped around his little finger!
I guess that photo shoot of ours was exhausting!
We went to a Christmas party last weekend with our home builders class and this is what Andrew thought of Santa. He wouldn't have anything to do with him! In fact, he set the tone for the other toddlers there. We are going to try to get a Santa picture tomorrow at the mall, so we will see how that turns out!
This is some of the candy that I did yesterday! I feel tired just looking at it!
This is Andrew's way of helping me with the chocolates!
