Today was super productive! The kiddos wrapped their presents for each other and we got all the Christmas wrapping stuff put away. It's so nice to not have to do that until two in the morning Christmas Eve...not that I've ever done that before. ;)
After that, we started decorating the tree. The kids had a blast putting all the ornaments up. Well, not all of them. I dug out my fun kid themed ones from my days at Hallmark. We've got Cat in the Hat, Scooby Doo, and the Peanuts gang up on our tree!
Next up, we got some fun lights up in the kids rooms. Mickey got some fun red and green candy looking ones. Aud got blinking white snowflakes! We then talked Andrew into bringing our second tree into the house and getting it in it's stand. We put that little guy into Mickey's room. He was over the moon excited! We got some lights on it and then the kids decorated it too. Well, Mickey decorated it, Aud decorated one branch. She put every ornament on that branch. Hee!
With all the decorating done, I got all the boxes stacked in the garage and started cleaning. Mickey helped out by vacuuming and Lilly helped out by barking like a maniac at the vacuum. I still have more cleaning to do tomorrow and cookie making that needs to get done, too. Hope you all are having a great holiday season!
