Christmas Recap

We had such a great Christmas this year. It was fun to spend time as a family. This was the first Christmas we stayed home and woke up in our own beds on Christmas morning. Our parents stayed with us this Christmas and of course the kids loved it. Cody had to work Christmas Eve and Christmas but we still spent Christmas morning with him. Harrison was funny because he wasn't interested in opening presents at all. Colby on the other hand loved it. He loved the scooter Santa brought him and the blue vacuum he also got. He vacuumed all morning, Santa had the right idea. Thanks Santa!!

Winter Wonderland

I couldn't believe the snow when I woke up this morning, it was really coming down. Colby couldn't wait to get outside and help Cody shovel the driveway. They played out in the snow for a while and had lots of fun.

Christmas Tag/Past Christmas

Colby's First Christmas

Christmas Taggety-Tag

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags?

Wrapping paper! I must be really weird because I really enjoy wrapping presents. I actually wrapped presents 2 years at Christmas time for a department store.

2. Real or artificial tree?

I like both! I love how you can have the perfect fake tree and you don’t need to vacuum everyday. Our real trees always seem to be a little like the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. I do love cutting them down and making those memories and there is nothing better than the smell of a real tree.

3. When do you put up the tree?

When I put up the fake tree I put it up the day after Thanksgiving. I love putting up my Christmas stuff and the kids love it.

4. When do you take the tree down?

After New Years
