Christmas is here!
We started decorating the house for Christmas on Sunday night. The girls were begging, but I had told them no because I still had to clean my house from the holidays. I didn't want to make a mess on top of another mess. And I was sorta tired lol While dh and I watched a movie in our room, they were busy. They surprised us by cleaning the whole front of the house spotless : D Of course, there WAS an ulterior motive, to decorate the tree, but how could I tell them no. We found an old fashioned Christmas station on XM radio and started doing the tree. I love all of the old holiday music. Like Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby and Elvis. It is what I grew up listening to, and it brings back fond memories. When I was a child, we had 4 big records that we would listen to continuously on a big cabinet record/8track player lol Anyone else remember those? They were the top of the line electronic equipment in the 70's lololol
This is our Nativity that we set up every year. I think this is the childrens' favorite decoration. This is the current configuration, it will change several times throughout the day. They love to move all of the figurines around : ) I remember playing with the Nativity under our tree when I was little. Baby Jesus was stuck in his manger on a nail : O I almost lost him a few times. I find it funny how my children love to do the same thing.
This morning I caught Samuel and Ava playing *store* with their play kitchen. Sam had turned the sink around to make it a service counter. I am not quite sure how sitting on top of the stove fits into playing store though ; )
They even took turns playing the salesperson.
