Putting Up Our Tree

Daddy put up our tree and lights. We don't get a real one because of my silly allergies. I'm sure the dust isn't good either. We're shooting for the lesser of the two evils health wise. I put up the ribbon and beads. The boys with my help put up the ornaments. Isaak calls them, "Ordaments". It was Isaak's turn to put up the star.

I also wrapped a package for each cousin, each boy, Daddy and one for myself. The boys thought it was funny that I wrapped one for myself. They were begging to know what was in their own boxes. Mica thought he had it all figured out. He doesn't.

I also worked on our holiday card. I'm stuck because I think I'm close to done, but sometimes when you work on things for a long time you're not sure if you're done, or not. I still have to write out something for the back. That will take awhile to.

Here's what I have:

It's from a cake I made in an Oreo Challenge from A Nut in A Nutshell. I seriously do not know if I'm done, or not. Daddy thinks I need snow flakes on the left side. I'm kind of going for a Jib Jab kind of look.

Daddy spent some time looking through a Christmas find book with Mica and Isaak. They were super into it.

I remember that cake, it was awesome looking! The card looks great. We went out and got our tree today and it's in the stand but not decorated yet (maybe tomorrow). :) Your tree looks awesome, I love how bright the lights are on it.

I think the card looks great as is! Though, I can see where snowflakes would look nice too!

You have a very nice family. It's a shame the kids grow up and move off. Christmas just isn't the same without them.

Your tree looks awesome and your card is GREAT! We mailed out our cards at the end of last week, so I am waiting until every one has gotten their cards before I post the picture on my page. Probably Weds or Thurs this week.
