Christmas Preparation

The last week has been filled with preparing for Christmas. We were in Chattanooga last weekend for The Cousin's Christmas party and Alex's birthday. The Cousin's Party is a girls-only event and I got some cute pics of my girls in their Christmas dresses.

We finally got around to putting our tree up the other day. The kids had a fun time getting the ornaments out adn hanging them on the tree. Their favorite is Harbin's new ornament that is "Rocket" from Little Einsteins and sings the entire theme song. Sadly, this is my LEAST favorite ornament not because to of the music, but because the kids are continually fighting over who gets to hold it- and it hasn't been on the tree since the first time they took it off!!!!

As you can see, it is getting increasingly harder to get a good picture with all three chldren in the frame. I suppose it's good that the process to get a pic is always fun, filled with everything from trying to make them laugh, to trying to get the older ones to stop clapping, tapping, or acting silly like we are to get Lydia to smile. It made for a few good silly shots, but I have still yet to- and may never- capture the "traditional" Christmas photo!!

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the pics of some of our Christmas happenings, and that everyone is having fun enjoying the season like we are!!!

The mom.
