yes, Xander's shirt says "my aunt rocks"
well the best part of Christmas was having Joette around, especially for the girls. Kenzie and Julia are still in denial that Joette has returned home. Kenzie cried for about 20 minutes on the car ride home from the airport.
"I didn't want Joette to leave. We need to sing more songs on the piano. I am so sad." She went on and on and on.
anyway, I will talk about all that great fun stuff in part 2.
Christmas was wonderful but a little stressful at first. Only because it was Dec 13th and we were still renovating the living room. We finally just stopped in our tracks and went and got our tree. I LOVE LOVE LOVE decorating the house for Christmas.- and I was so anxious to get done with the room- so before we could finish the top shelf of the board and batten and put the crown up- we just said, "happy holidays" and quit working on the room- but oh how much I love the room- even unfinished. I just LOVE IT. It finally feels like coming home when I walk through the front door.
we still need to do touch-ups- tape and re-paint
get curtains- although the white sheets from Savers are actually kind of cute
top shelf part of board and batten
and finish decorating
but I love it already- once we are 100% complete I will post more about all the details and how to's of this big project- we ran into a few big messes along the way (of course)
the reindeer that was given to Mom by her first boyfriend
Emily's famous advent calendar which happens to also be the cause of many fights with the girls :)
Emily's nativity- Emily is the main supplier to the Christmas decor around here
'tis the season to be jolly
I just love this Santa
The mistletoe that would hit Chay's head every time he walked under it- let's just say it didn't put him in the kissing mood...
