December is here!

Is everyone else as excited as I am that December is finally here!!? Today I was SUPPOSED to unpack from our Thanksgiving travels, do laundry, catch up on housework, and work on my Christmas cards (that were supposed to be done a week ago). Ellie had other plans for me. When I picked her up from Kindergarten at noon she BEGGED me to start getting out the Christmas decorations. I really didn’t want to yet because I like to have my house in order before I begin that process, but I had to admit, it sounded a lot more fun than housework. So…we turned on our favorite Alvin and the Chipmunk Christmas CD and went to work!
The second we get out the holiday decor Ellie finds her “baby’s first Christmas” hat and puts it on. Whenever we’re home in the month of December, she’s wearing it. She was so beyond excited to decorate. This girl reminds me more of myself everyday.

Next, Ellie insisted on hanging up Kenny’s hideous Charger sock so the baby could have one too. This really throws off the look I’m going for here. I figure my options are: to leave the sock up and make her happy OR to order the baby a matching sock with Aladdin on it (since we still have no name for the little one and that is what the girls are calling him). Guess I’m leaving the Charger sock up. This third kid thing is already mellowing me out.

I can’t wait to spend the rest of the week decking the halls! If only I could ignore all of my regular obligations… Happy December everyone!

p.s. If you’re interested in dates and times of all of the fun Holiday shows on this month you can find them here.

  1. So fun isn’t it?! I’m glad you bagged the laundry and did the decorating. Ellie is too cute and I love that she loves the hat so much! Have fun decking the halls! I can’t wait to see what you came up with for your Christmas card this year! Love you!

  2. Happy Holidays!! Can’t believe it is December 1st. It is the “most wonderful time of year!”

    I have to agree three kids totally mellows you, my Christmas tree for example has about 5 ornaments on each branch, and I don’t even mind!

  3. I thought of you this weekend as I was in the check out line at TJ Maxx/ HomeGoods in Huntington Beach and a WALL of Chargers gear caught my eye. I don’t know any other Chargers fans…strange but true.

    Is it too late to exchange Christams cards? I would love one from you…

  4. I totally did the same thing yesterday- I really didn’t want to dig everything out, but my kids were begging too. Now stuff is just everywhere and will probably be that way until the weekend. Oh well, bring on Christmas!!

  5. Oh I so wish I could get into the holiday season and start decorating…I have spent the past 3 days trying to unpack from my 2 month adventure in St. George and with a new baby around – not much is getting done. There is something to be said about having a 3rd child!

  6. So fun!!! You make me want to enjoy the holidays more!! I vote your blog the #1 Blog ever. Can’t wait for you to have your little boy. Boys are so fun, but I guess I don’t have any girls to compare it too. haha! I hoe you’re feeling good.
