Since we tend to stick around for Christmas with Matt having to work, we had to get a real Christmas tree. The kids were excited to decorate it, only to find that after seven years, our christmas tree lights all died. So we had to postpone our decorating party so we could get re stocked with lights. Hopefully they'll last at least another seven years.
I feel like this time of year gets so busy. I'm trying to relax, enjoy it, enjoy my kids. not have preterm labor :) and remember why we celebrate Christmas and what and who is important. Somebody might need to send me a reminder each day to keep me on track. I hope your weeks leading up to Christmas are Merry and Bright.
