finally. thanksgiving is over. and it’s socially acceptable to listen to christmas music. and put up decorations. i may or may not have already starting the former. the latter we attended to yesterday and today…
rather than hit up any black friday (thursday?) sales, we rolled the mile-ish into downtown (ha!) lewisville to our favorite christmas tree lot and began the careful selection of this year’s evergreen.
we left the tree up overnight so it could settle into it’s new home. it’s hospice, if you will. that’s sad. nevermind. anyhow, we dug out the christmas decorations. anna quickly collected all of the stuffed animal type decorations and surrounded herself with them. and yes. she’s naked. potty training. remember?
two years ago, i scored really cheap little trees for the kids rooms from target on the day after christmas clearance day. boxing day, if you will. anna wanted a star for hers, so isaac made her one with paper. while i decorated the big tree, the kids decorated their trees, trying to steal my ornaments repeatedly.
on a semi-related note. derek got me a really super nice fancy pants camera (used) for christmas this year. he took a bunch of pictures with it, so there’s a chance that i’ll post again with the super nice fancy pants pictures that he took. just warning you.
