Certainly at this point, my kids know I am a “blogger”. The other night we were out looking at Christmas lights and I particularly liked the way one house looked. Drew says to me, “Mom, why don’t you just take pictures and blog about it already.” Yep, he knows me!
The festivities are in full swing around here. Home Alone, Frosty the Snowman, and The Grinch have been watched, I hosted a little holiday get together and ornament exchange, we drove around to see Christmas lights, Drew has seen Santa, Christmas cards have been delivered, we’ve baked, decorated cookies, had preschool caroling, shopped/wrapped and we are hoping for snow tonight!
I have one child who likes Santa, and one child who is terrified of adults in costume (not looking good for Disney any time soon :). Drew busted Santa drinking Starbucks in his down time which he thought was pretty funny. He looks so long here, I can’t stand it!

Santa’s beard is getting full!
Love having a real tree in the house. We decorated in late November this year, and I am still enjoying the holiday decorations (I usually get sick of theme décor after a few weeks).
Amidst all these wonderful things, we are ever thoughtful of the people who lost loved ones in Newtown last week. I cannot even imagine. Like all of you, I have a heavy heart and am counting my blessings this season.
More to come on the DIY tree skirt (above), teacher gifts, and Christmas decor around our house (there is not much!). Hope you are all enjoying your festivities and your families, and as always, thanks for stopping by and reading my little blog. I appreciate it more than you know. :)
