Making Christmas la la laaaaa!

We decided to put the tree up last night. I was tired, but I knew we needed to get it done soon with the new baby arriving any time in the next 30 days. My due date is the 15th of Dec., so I assume he will mostly likely arrive by then and I wanted to have the tree up and be ready for Christmas nice and early, just in case. Anyway, it was an enjoyable evening. We started by watching SNL Christmas skits while M put the tree up and got the ribbon on it. Then we switched to Traditional Christmas music on cable while the kids and M decorated the tree. I relaxed and played photographer. I think it turned out pretty!!!

OMGosh! You must be one of the smartest women I know! Yes ... in my book, this is waaaaay early ... BUT, you have special circumstances! I hope your newest darlin' comes on his due date. I have a heartfelt fondness for Dec. 15. But ... he's going to be welcomed home with a beautiful family & a Christmas setting all ready! Bless you & yours, Amanda!

These are gorgeous photos Amanda!! To capture the soft color of the lights and not have blurry shots of your kids - it's a tough thing to do with any camera! Thanks for sharing!

Oh, it's beautiful! We are off to buy a new tree this year after thanksgiving dinner, since Michaels is having them 50% off. Hopefully ours will look as nice as yours.
