The tree and decorations are up
notice the gate isn't as long this year....hopefully next year we won't be needing a gate.
This is an ornament that didn't make it past day 3 of the tree being up. It was a glass ornament glued to a ice cream cone. Apparently Ian got hungry.
The stockings aren't hung since one of the stocking holders fell off and hit Ian right on the bridge of the nose. No picture of that..although I might be wise to start a "scab album".
The kids have had their picture taken with Santa
The gingerbread house is completed. I bought a Wilton house already made...next year we are going to make it from scratch - ok we will just have to wait and see how Mamma feels about that next year.
And like all the other Christmases here in Texas...less than one week before Christmas we are wearing SHORTS!! No picture of me in shorts - you would need to wear sunglasses to view the pics!
Lauren was taking a nap while we were outside...Thank goodness because Ian went inside and locked the storm door on us. I previously learned not to go outside to get the mail without a key..now we just learned that we can't leave the house to play with out a key. Thanks Ian!
It's been rumored that we will be having a couple guests with us this Christmas. How exciting!! It's been 7 years since I've spent Christmas Day with my Dad!!
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!
