Our weekend in pictures …
Our holiday adventures started with a trip to Frosty’s Christmas trees. We had planned on going to a local tree farm to cut one down ourselves but well, it’s freaking cold out there. We settled for a pre-cut tree but not before the kids tried to take down the giant blow up Frosty. All I wanted was to snap a pic of all three kids in front of him but someone (eh hem Emma) bumped into Frosty and somehow unplugged him. The whole thing started collapsing towards the kids sending everyone into a fit of fear, followed by laughter.
The kind tree guy got Frosty plugged back in so we could get our quick picture.
Then we got all bundled up to get Christmas lights on the house. After a few not-so-nice words between my husband and I, I left him to brave the cold while I got my frozen tush back in the house.
And because I don’t torture my family enough by making every tv in the house play the full 24 hours of A Christmas Story on Christmas Eve, I had to go and find a mini Leg Lamp for my Christmas table. I doubt I’ll ever convince my husband to buy me the full sized A Christmas Story Leg Lamp …. but I’m sure gonna try.
When we finally got around to decorating the tree, the kids got to add some new ornaments this year. Kaydee picked out the 2013 Holiday Barbie Ornament and a Fancy Nancy ornament, from her favorite books.
Emma added her favorites … Ariel and Minnie Mouse.
While Matt, the ultimate Packers fan, had to put his Brett Favre ornament at the top of the tree.
Hubby even picked out a singing ornament … National Lampoon’s station wagon.
When it was all said and done, we took in the beauty of our mixed bag tree. Unlike previous years, we skipped the fancy, color coordinated decorations.
Even Tink got in on the decorating fun … without eating the tree or decorations.
