Busy day today!

We spent today finding places to put our Virtual Baby Shower prizes so that we could pull out all of our Christmas decorations and then finally putting out all the decorations! Let me tell you, it was not easy to find a place to put all of the wonderful items that we’ve gotten! But, I think now everything has it’s place. At least it’s not all stacked on my dining room/play room/office floor!

I sent Gene out to battle the Black Friday shoppers. Since you have to drive 2 hours to find any kind of shopping around here, I just wasn’t feeling up to it. BUT, Kmart was having a special on booster car seats – buy one, get one free. Both of the boys are ready to move up to boosters, so we absolutely couldn’t pass this up. He got there just in time to grab the last 2 black booster seats. It’s a good thing they had 2, or our boys would have been using pretty pink flower booster seats!

While he was out, I spent my time decorating. My tree is seriously lacking something this year. I’m kind of bummed about it. I’ll blog more about it tomorrow, after I dig up some years past pictures, and take some of this year’s tree. It’s really quite sad. LOL!

Lucy is in heaven, though. Everywhere she looks in our house, there’s something Christmas. She can’t keep her hands off the tree, the Nativity scene, or the Cherished Teddy’s train set. She also doesn’t like hearing, “Lucy, don’t touch!” She’s really gentle with everything, though, so I think she’ll be fine. Luckily, I have lots of super glue in the house, and these things have survived 3 kids before her, so I think we’re safe.

Here are a few pictures I got of the kids and Parker yesterday:

Aside from the pumpkin pie poisoning, we’ve had a really good couple of days.

Now, if I could just get Lucy and Parker to sleep……

    Your kids are all so beautiful.

    Our family tradition is to decorate the house and put the tree up the day after Thanksgiving. I am a bit sad we are not home to do it but am happy for our reason why. Hubby and I talked about it last night and we will just have to wait until next weekend.

    Well, with the move coming up, I’m not sure when we’ll get our decorations up, but so excited it’ll be in our new house! (God willing, that is. I am still nervous about this happening!) Enjoy your decorations! It always helps me get more in the Christmas spirit when I can’t believe it’s that time already.

    The pics are great! I’m lovin’ watching Parker grow. He’s so stinkin’ cute! It’s so funny, in the first pics he reminds me of Z, as he usually has, but in that last one he reminds me of JJ!
