The halls are decked

So, I'm actually posting this out of order, but here it is, our Christmas tree! We actually decked our halls before Thanksgiving(shame on us!) but we did it so that when we got home from our trip, our house would be ready for Christmas. . .

Playing in the tree box-they made their own little "clubhouse" inside.

Wrapping the tree with pretty ribbon and tinsel and sparkly things.

Buddy the Elf is on the loose again! The kids are having so much fun finding him every morning. Aubrey was so sweet and read the storybook to Cali as soon as we pulled it out of the box.

Its always so much fun to get all of the Christmas stuff out and decorate together. Every year gets better and better when you have children to share Christmas with! Everything is so exciting to them. Its so refreshing and brings back the memories of the excitement I had as a child. I think our house is ready for the season! Lights and decorations are complete inside and out. We are so excited for Christmas!

Wish we could say the same about out place but alas all my lil helpers are on their own now making memories which is a good thing. Love the pics and everyone looks like they were the best at keeping the spirit of Christmas alive and well at the Duenas'.

Once the tree is up there is a definite Christmas feeling in the house! Good jobs girls on getting the tree beautified!
