Goodbye Fall, Hello Christmas!!





What a great time of year!! Fall has been so much fun. Trips to Branson, playing outside, trick-or-treating, pumpkins, popcorn...

But, as of Tuesday, we said goodbye to that part of the year. I drug out lots of boxes, emptied a couple of storage places and got out the Christmas tree and all of the decor. Have you ever tried to put up a tree with 2 very excited, overly anxious to help little girls, and a very curious "hands-on" 17 month old?? Wow, what an experience.

I just love this time of the year. I sit here beside a twinkling tree, the smell of cinnamon in the air from homemade ornaments the girls made today, and my first pumpkin roll of this year in the fridge...life is good.

*advertisement break*- I took the kids to have their pictures done with ANTIQUITIES picture company today. Our local MOPS group did it for a fundraiser. If they are ever in your area- give them a try. A little pricey but they did an awesome job. They provide all of the outfits and lots of props. A great experience. Hopefully I will have some to post in a couple of weeks.

Nancy,
Great to hear from you. Thanks for stopping by. :) Khara and Kelsey have fond memories of past play dates... maybe next time Kaden and Caleb will be old enough to enjoy each other.
