OMG…back to the daily grind…kind of..well, at least for Geno and Jonathan, I got one more day.
Our Thanksgiving break was AMAZING! I don’t believe we spent that much time together in a LONG time. It was so nice and relaxing……ahhhhhhhhh…. Any who, I promised a few more pictures.
So lets start off by saying, we have this silly little tradition that we randomly started way back when that we wear festive hats while decorating the house for Christmas. I don’t know how it started but we each have a hat to wear, Geno isn’t so much into the whole tradition, Ella seems to like it.
Setting things up seemed to be more challenging this year. Little Hands were in EVERYTHING and EVERYWHERE.
AND of course she was proud of herself.
I may say, that is NOT the tree we ended up putting up. For some reason pre-lit trees don’t last long in this house, maybe its where we store them, who knows, but we ended up going out TWICE and 3 different stores and buying ANOTHER tree (so help me) headache #2 after Ella,
I fell in love with this 7 foot beauty, who’s not pre-lit I may add…
if anyone is wondering, Wally World (Wal-Mart) does have the best prices on Christmas trees.
I decided oh so randomly, which i’m good at, of doing a brown paper packages tied up with string…. cause….
oh you know you want to sing it!
so most of my pictures around the house are wrapped in such a manner. I kinda like the look, if I do say so myself.
with a few more decorations added and a little upstairs in each room we are in full Christmas season mode!
Moosey always comes out and ONLY at Christmas time for the sake of our sanity. He sings “it’s the most wonderful time of the year.” and we heard it about 100 times in the first 2 minutes he was out. this is probably the only thing Geno will NOT share with Ella and its causing a headache (#3) so i’m sure Moosey will have company in the attic during his off months. Stay tuned for that.
This Thanksgiving has taught me what it means to be grateful and how to live it out in everyday life. This Christmas season is for showing your gratitude and I plan to do so.
Charlie Brown gets quoted a lot around our house, so does Star Wars and the Muppets…I digress…
there’s one quote he says that I like the most,
Hug your loved ones tight.
life is short.
