It's Beginning to look a lot like....



a mess really.  But here are some shots of me and the kids getting into the Christmas spirit.  Of course there was Christmas music blaring in the background and lots of helping to unload the Christmas bins.  But the best part of this year is that we sprung for a real tree.  I love real Christmas trees it just gets me into the mood for Christmas.  I love everything about them .  The smell, the mess, the huge sagging bows.  We always had real trees when I was little in fact we used to cut our own. I have such great memories of cutting Christmas trees and fire wood.  Maybe one day my kids will get to have those memories as well.





For now the memory of walking through the lot at Lowe's will have to suffice.haha!!

How fun, I always wanted a real tree but not the mess.

How fun! I love Kayton in the hat, the other two are so cute, but her with no wild black curls is so different.

Real tree? I am jealous but we would die. We are already sneezing, even Brylin's teacher asked me if she was sick or allergies. Right now my ears are killing me.

You'll have to a post a picture of it all decorated!

I think a count down would stress me out...more packing than I have done and no christmas cards in the mail yet. Time, time, time goes tooo fast. We'll be glad to be settled and soon have our own house again too. And, living by our family in the beautiful state of Utah, how nice will it be?
