I can't believe how close it is until Christmas! The fact that the weather was so warm for so long this year I think kind of made me feel like I still had a lot of time til the holidays, but now ready or not they are here!
I finally got the bathroom decorated..something I was thinking of skipping this year but turns out the kids like it when I decorate the bathroom so I decided it must be done :)
Afterall, for me Christmas is all about making happy memories for my children.
We are having a family get together at our house on Sunday night with my husbands side of the family so it gave me added inspiration to decorate the bathroom.
I leave the outside of our house to my husband and kids. I am sure you can probably guess my choice would not be to fill the yard with holiday blow ups. :) But again, it is all about the kids, and they love them!
Had to add a little fake snow to this photo for fun (gotta love Picmonkey!) because though we have been doing our snow dance, there has yet to be any snow that lasted more than an hour or two. It sure feels cold enough though!
Duke has been keeping warm in his Christmas pajamas.
Other than a couple times the kittens (I suppose they are cats now!) have been really good about leaving the tree alone. I have been proud of them.
Even though there has been a lot of sadness in the world recently I am warmed by all the good that is out there too. I think recent tragedies have made us all realize how important we all are to each other.
There is more good than bad, and that makes me feel really good about the holidays.
I hope everyone is warm and cozy this holiday season!
