This was my Facebook status earlier today....
I started this yesterday, and it was going great until I plugged Nathaniel's deers in and then a string in beginning went out, and poof... no lights! Ugh! I was too annoyed to deal with it, so I walked away!
This morning, when I got home from church, I had an idea and went to work on fixing it. And I guess I did pretty well since it looks all pretty tonight!
Next up, window painting!
I bought a stencil kit at the Dollar Store and had window paint pens left over from when we owned the store and turned Audrey loose with them....
I think that the results came out great! Audrey did a great job and had a blast doing it!
Next up .... the tree!
We went to the tree place. I had $22 in my wallet, but there were no trees for $22. So we were heading back to the car, but the salesman stopped me to ask why. I told him that none of the trees were in out price range. He walked me around the lot and pointed out 3 trees that he would drop to what I had, and the kids picked this one from those three. Then we put it on the wheelchair lift to bring home! Made sense to me...
I think it looks great in the house, set up on a few milk crates with Nathaniel's Christmas train running around the base of it...
Maybe tomorrow I will get up the energy to actually decorate it!
Finally the house...
We got the entertainment center changed over to Christmas decorations.
Audrey set up the Nativity scene.
Audrey was a BIG help decorating this year!
And finally Audrey and I set up our Christmas village!
There is a lot left to do, but I think we got a start on Christmas!
Then we were off to live the Polar Express!
