It's starting to look a little more like Christmas




Yesterday we decorated for Christmas. We left the tree decision up to my little Ellie and I think she did a splendid job. Yes, the tree is real. Not so green I know, but I did buy totes at Publix to contribute a little more to our world. I do the little things, low voc paint, organic milk and eggs, mrs. meyers and method cleaners, etc. It seems I do what is good for my kiddos after reading my short list, hmm. Anyway, we baked cookies and had hot chocolate with marshmallows. Ellie now is a huge fan and KJ not so much. I ended up doing most of the decorating myself, the kiddos got bored with the work part of it pretty quickly. What can I expect from a sick 3 year old and 20 month old? They ended up sitting on the couch with daddy and watching Elf. They were quite delighted with the final product though.

Our bare (and real) tree is in our livingroom where it has been for a few days now - things have bee too crazy to decorate it *sigh* I have a question, my hubby, son and I are coming to Birmingham to visit family Dec 18 - 21 would your hubby possibly be available to do photos? And if so, what does he charge? can you email me? meganchampion518@yahoo.com Thanks!

if I was there I'd have been with the kids on the couch I'm not a fan of the work side especially when Elf is on! :)
