finally

dsc003851Finally our tree is up and it’s really starting to feel like the Christmas season.  The girls are so excited and we spent the majority of the day decorating the house for Christmas.  While we don’t have a chimney, we had to explain to L. that Santa will still come into our house.  We hang a little stocking on the front door with a “key” to our house that will let Santa in.  K., on the other hand, I have a feeling that this will be the last year for Santa.  L. is just getting into all of it and it’s fun to watch her eyes light up with excitement from everything.

Ornaments consist of ones collected over the years whether they have been bought, handmade by the girls, or thrifted.  But the ornaments I’m really excited about our the ones that came from our good friend and glassblower K.C.  Beautiful orbs that hang from the tree.  Not one is like the other and all picked out with much help from K.  12 of them to be exact (was 13 but I gave one to my Mom last night).

This one above is my favorite.  You can’t tell exactly from the picture (it’s hard to capture the “true color” of things) but it’s mostly clear with color blobs (that’s what K. calls them) of white and green.  Very very pretty.

Last night then we took the girls on the Polar Express.  K. had been on it once before when she was 3 years old.  It’s so much fun, you get to wear your pj’s (which is right up my girls alley), drink hot chocolate, visit the North Pole, and best part is, you get to do it all on a train ride.

My cousin’s little girls got to go with us this year which made it all the more special for my girls.  They had a ton of fun, laughing, giggling, and enjoying each other’s company.  The train left Canton then traveled all the way up to the North Pole (in only a matter of 45 minutes, never knew the North Pole was that close).

Now that I’m officially in the holiday spirit, I have some Christmas presents that need finishing, 1 that needs started, cookies to bake, and lots and lots of Christmas stories to read about.

    Oh, Wow! Your tree is perfect, so cute! I don’t even have one decoration out yet. I did send one present out today (huge for me) I can’t seem to remember to send packages. I’ve only bought very few gifts.. and need to get more and finish my apron projects… I’m going to be crazy next week.

    Looks like you guys had tons of fun with the train ride. Very adorable. North Pole is about a 8 hour drive from here (during the winter anyway).
