Tis the season

We have been trying to get into the Christmas spirit at our house. I have been a kindof a scrouge this year because there was only 3 weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas and I thought it was silly to get all of our Christmas decorations out for only 3 weeks. But when you have kids, sometimes you have to do things that you don't want to....So we got out the decorations and Noah, Cole, and Emery HELPED (as much as 5, 3 and 8 month olds do) decorate our house.

The kids decorated the tree, then I redecorated it.

We decorated a gingerbread house. The boys had a lot of fun but it made a huge mess. I am still finding frosting on my table from it.

We went and saw Santa last weekend. It went so much better than last year (1st photo). Cole was nervous but kept telling himself that he wasn't scared. Noah jumped right up on santa's lap and Emery was fine until she looked up and saw that a strange guy with a hat was holding her, then she lost it. But it was at the very end so it all worked out. It was fun to hang out with the Jamieson's and the kids had a ball.

Tis the season!!!
