What a special month and time of year!
Can you believe how fast it has come?
The Sunday after Thanksgiving we always go chop down our GPSed tree.
This year it snowed like crazy so only the husbands and Caleb went.
I will admit that when I saw this......
I threw an adult sized tantrum.
I mean---we GPS the tree in advance---there is no excuse for such a measly tree!
After I put it up I thought..."not as bad as I thought"...."I can work with this"
So we started to put on some of my favorite pieces.
Once we got it all decorated I realized what a perfect tree my husband found and apologized for my beastliness!
I love decorating the tree.
It is a special thing for me.
But having a 1 1/2 year old and a few other small children makes it hard work sometimes.
Lets just say the tree tipped over "by itself" after we had decorated it.
A few tears were shed.
Swear words in my head.
The lack of motivation to do it again.
...... some how I managed to get it pulled back together!
And I am glad!
This month has been busy!
Lots of practice time for Caleb shooting with dad!
Another fun thing for them to share!
We tried an impromptu photo shoot..
but Lukas was having none of it!
Way to many goodies and treats.
Lots of parties (post to follow).
And now with the last week before Christmas here, I have somehow managed to keep my sanity and my house tidy( for the most part.)
I look forward to a quite week of reflection.
Snuggling with my kiddos by the fire.
And Making memories!
What are your plans?
