It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We woke up to a winter wonderland! Enough snow to make it look magical, but not enough to be a nuisance. The kids had a delayed opening, so I took advantage of my time with them and we started to decorate the Christmas tree. As a family tradition, the boys get an ornament every Christmas, just like I did (and still do from my Mom). We line them up by year and hang them one at a time starting with the oldest ornaments. I love it!! It reminds me of sitting on the floor with my sister doing the exact same things. I don't line up my ornaments anymore though, geez, the kids would never get a chance to go!!!

In one of the bins we found the kids Santa hats. They both wanted to wear them to school :) Their teacher let them wear them all day (I was surprised). Ethan said, a bit annoyed, "All of the kids were calling me Santa ALL day long!" huh, I wonder why, lol!

I hope you liked my family post. It's been a while and well, I haven't had a chance to stamp all week.

Thanks for stopping in!!!

Oh Maureen. I just loved this post. It reminded me of you and Mary Frances lining up your ornaments, so excited to hang them on the tree. And how annoyed your sister would be that you had more then her!!! The picture of the kids is too cute. It is going to be my new background.
