and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.
:: a little sneaky elf is residing at our house- his name is George Albert the Elf. we like this sneaky little guy. especially since he made us an amazingly delicious Santa-Pancake breakfast upon his arrival.
:: we have an impressive line-up of cold-cough remedies stacked on our counters
:: we went to our cute little Christmas Tree Lot down the street and hand-picked our cute little tree. we brought back the smells of heaven with us.
:: we got half-way through trimming the tree and ran out of lights. and realized we didn't have hooks to hang our ornaments with. so it stayed half-lit and undecorated for a day. drove me nuts.
:: my little helpers helped me make our own little colorfully funky pom-pom garland. it took way longer than i expected. and i love it.
:: Ellie literally squealed with delight putting the star on the tree. i loved that.
:: my little helpers have done lots of sporatic shopping and deal-searching with me, in hopes to find the perfect gifts for loved ones
:: and i've even been working on finishing that little rosette-wreath i pinned on pinterest like a year ago. i'm happy with how it's turning out.
we have been doing other decemberish things that are unpictured (for now) including (but not limited to):
:: Christmas lights on our little house
:: watching the First Presidency Christmas Devotional (if you missed it, you can watch here- it was wonderful).
:: listening to tons of Christmas music, full blast (even Angels We Have Heard On High...Jenny is my witness)
:: baking and eating way too many treats already...even for breakfast (take that, P90x!)
:: finally ordering our Christmas cards- i'm so excited with how they turned out. can't wait to send you one!
:: and, meeting Santa (which will be featured on its own post when i have time to scan the ridiculously priced picture (yes, Six Flags doesn't let you take a picture with your own camera anymore! ba humbug!)
we are loving December, as i'm sure you are too.
