So, this past week, Christmas has BLOWN up in our house! I need to take some pics of the mantle, dinning room, living room.. I swear.. every room downstairs is full.. I kept pulling boxes upon boxes down in the garage.. I never need to buy a string of lights again in my life.. I won't need to buy ANY gift wrap for 20 years.. I am one that buys things the day after Christmas, then forgets about it.. geesh, I pulled down two brand new 4 roll sets of gift wrap (the ones that come with the bows and ribbon).. but then at Target this past week, I saw some perfect GW in my colors, turquoise, pink and green and of course bought it.. with the coordinating bows.. I didn't realize I had done this last year.. don't we all do this?

We also got our tree today. What an exciting time. We borrowed the pickup truck and we needed it plus the car to get everyone to the tree lot.. I love to make it a big deal..especially with Tony. I drove the pickup with Bianca and Tony sitting next to me. It was so nice to have them right up next to me.. I thought about how extremely blessed I am in this life to have two beautiful children who just make this world sing for me. The little laughs, the cute looks they give each other and me. Its incredible that they are mine and I am so lucky to have them. I never in a million years when I was young thought that children would be my proudest achievement in life. But I can say that with such honor now. I never would have thought that being a stay at home mom to them, keeping a house, starting traditions was going to be the life for me. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. With Tony being at an age of wonder and innocence.. it really brings the holidays into perspective, Enjoy them!

This is a wooden block I had, but used the Scrap For A Cure December Kit which had my FAVORITE paper in it! Elsie Holiday paper.. can't get any better than that! LOVE IT!
