It's definitely Christmastime around our house. The girls are so excited about everything. We put our tree up last week and then we put up the lights outside yesterday for Family Night. Ryan bravely risked his life for the sake of the iscicle lights, but the final result was well worth it! I just love this time of year. The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is turn the lights on the tree and the garlands on the stairs. I know I probably shouldn't, but I keep them on all day when I am home. It just makes me happy. I probably won't be happy when we get our bill for the month. . . . .
And just to back track a bit. . . this picture was taken the weekend before Thanksgiving. Ryan and I decided to tackle the daunting task of cleaning the garage (we decided that it was time as we have lived here since June and were only parking one car inside). So to keep the girls occupied, they put on their swim suits and went to town with the hose and blow up trampoline. I guess the desert has some perks. . . . . I am happy to say that we are officially wearing long sleeves (some days) and jeans. Ok, so the girls are mostly just wearing tights because it's hard for them to go a day without a skirt or dress. But it IS cooler, and that for that I am grateful.
Whew! So now I'm caught up. Time to wrap some presents!
