"Mommy, why does Christmas just take sooo long to get here?" -Allie, age 5
While pointing at the Christmas tree, "Mommy, look it's Christmas!" -Judah, age 2
I put on the lights and the ribbon, and then I just let the kids have full reign of decorating! They put stuff wherever they wanted. After they went to bed that night, I had fun rearranging! ☺
We sent the grandparents early Christmas kisses the other day!
Such little sillies! All we talk about these days is Christmas!
The day after Thanksgiving the tree went up and decorations started appearing here and there. I think I was a little late by Brazilian standards. My neighbor had already had her tree up for a couple of weeks! But of course, Brazilians don't have to wait until after Thanksgiving since it is an American holiday.
I had such fun decorating for Christmas this year. Last year the tree was my Christmas present, but all I had were a few balls to put on it. This year I got to add lights, snowflakes, berries, pinecones, and a tree skirt--thanks to my sweet mom that likes to send me packages full of goodies! ☺☺
