Almost Christmas ...

Hope this post finds you all ready for Christmas! I still have a bit of shopping to do and lots of wrapping but I'm on vacation all this week so the stress hasn't started building ... yet lol

A couple of weeks ago we went to a tree lot to pick and cut our Christmas tree. It was a fun filled day ... perfect Washington weather, no rain! Here's a few pictures of the family picking the tree and cutting it down.

I think we found The Tree ...



Are you done yet?


The tree is home and up and we start to decorate it ... I love watching the boys rediscover their special ornaments ...



I love this picture! I was standing in the kitchen watching Chris and Monica have a tender moment ... priceless ...


is this not the most pathetic picture you've seen lately ... poor Maddy ... feeling total ignored lol


Tomorrow I'm doing some more finishing of Christmas ornaments. I should have lots to share soon. Thanks for visiting and leaving your comments. I love reading them!

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for blogging friends ...

Your tree is beautiful! And that's wonderful that you have help with the decorating too (the boys left me and Brittany after 5 minutes~~maybe it'll change when they get older???)
