Getting In The Spirit

We spent yesterday bundled on the couch watching Christmas movies,

and after dinner we brought out our Christmas decorations,

my little helpers said they were going to help me but like always 

they take off after finding a few fun things that they can play with 

so I was left to decorate myself which works out since we all 

know that I would have to rearrange things anyway :)

atleast they got in the holiday spirit and wore their Santa hats as they ran around playing!

we will get our tree within the next  couple of weeks, 

last year ours was dead by Christmas so we may wait until the 2nd week of December this time around.

I had to put the stockings up high this year because Brooklyn would definitely pull those stockings down 

and I do not want those heavy stocking hangers falling down on her.

After going through most of our decorations I decided we might need some new things

I noticed most of the stuff we had was a bunch of junk and a lot of it is just tiny figurines that end up looking more like clutter to me than decorations

I will be on the lookout for some bigger and better items this week so we can complete our Holiday decorating :)
