Oh, I finally made my appointment for the dreaded TRAVEL SHOTS!! Wow, getting these made it so official that I'M LEAVING IN LESS THAN A MONTH!!! Awful pic I know...but just had to share the experience, of course:5 shots today...ouch!!! I only took ONE when I went to pick up LL...THIS time I didn't want to take any chances since I'd be traveling out of the city to remote parts of Ethiopia....Well..they really didn't hurt...I'm just feelin a little dizzy tonight!! If I pass out half way through this post..you'll know WHY!! :)
*** And, I was determined to decorate early this year SINCE I'm missing ONE FULL week of my FAVORITE Christmas season!! Now I'll be back in plenty of time for Christmas...but I figured I'd better get in ALL my Christmas CHEER now since I'd be out of country for some of it this year!!! So, we started putting up Christmas tonight....Here's a sneak peek:
The kids had more fun with the Christmas Tree box than they did with the actual tree....You could seriously hear LL and George laughing through the entire house playing in this box...
And, yes, this is what 5 kids in a Christmas Tree Box looks like...yes, they are nutty:
And, my sweet 5 yr. old Hal grabbed his pen and paper and started writing his letter to santa....I know...he's so cute (and I'm not biased at all..LOL ):
**More to come when this mess is actually put together and out of all the boxes sitting around my house now...Such a happy, fun time of year!! We have Christmas Music playin.....Christmas cookies in the oven....Feeling so blessed....
Happy Friday to you all, kj
