And then I got sidetracked with Christmas.
Still not 100 percent decorated, but that is usually the way with me. We are doing pretty well though.
We bought our tree a week ago and we finally decorated it!
Last week, I kept reading these blogs about traditions where each kid gets to pick an ornament each year. While I thought it was cute, I thought not worth the money.
I never shared these thoughts with the husband and lo and behold, we go to get the tree and he announces each kid may pick a special ornament.
Who cares, if we pay the electric bill late, we have ornaments!!!!
(incidentally, only half kidding about the bill part)
So, here, after much thought, are what the kids winded up with:
Oldest daughter has the sneakers, because converse are in this year! And so is the color green for some reason.
Younger daughter picked the skater only after much prodding by this mama who thought is was beautiful and a real keepsake ornament. Enjoy her picture because she now has a broken hand- her darling brother and she decided to fight over it and if fell to the floor- I know you are shocked about their behavior- I was too.
Older son got the Yankees ornament after much prodding from his father and the little guy got the mustang even after we tried to get him to get the firetruck. It reminds me of the dukes of hazard car, which the husband scoffed at, because apparently everyone knows that car wasn't a mustang. Silly mommy.
And this is officially my 200th post. You guys are great and so is blog world.
Have a great night and stay tuned for more Christmas pictures.
