It's Beginning to Feel A Lot Like Christmas!

This weekend was busy! I managed to get the Christmas tree decorated and the Christmas cards in the mail.

It was a pleasure to have my darling Caitlyn help me! She is becoming quite the organizer. I showed her how to lay out the ornaments first so we would know what we had to work with and how to start with the red and white ones first. She did very well actually. There are many clumps of ornaments and my tree has been redecorated multiple times already but it is being well loved!

Brent is doing well with the Christmas tree and he even hung a few ornaments. His sister gave him directions and he was sure to follow! It's amazing how he listens to her better than he listens to me.

Caitlyn and Brent figured out how beautiful it looked with the lights out and Brent quickly become in charge of the lights. It has also been really nice to have Caitlyn turn on and off all the Christmas lights in the house.

Today we enjoyed hot chocolate in front of the Christmas tree while we stuffed Christmas cards. Caitlyn really enjoyed putting labels and stamps on the envelopes. She did an excellent job too. She is such an excellent helper! Can you tell I'm so proud?

There is much more to do but I'm taking it one moment at a time and enjoying it all! I hope your Christmas preparations are going well too. Merry Christmas!!


  1. That sounds so fun!! You are making some awesome memories for your kids. Can't wait to see pictures of the tree!

  2. Sounds like a cozy and fun Christmas at your house. I can just imagine how much fun they are having turning the lights on and off. Just as you are proud of Caitlyn, I am proud of you!
