This photo is one of my favorites. Look at his face. The excitement is written in those dimples.
trip to the zoo in April. He liked it :)
Also, I totally found a way around that "one present" rule - it's called stocking stuffers.
Char sends us pictures of the kids playing and it's just the cutest thing I've ever seen. Seeing a kid's imagination at work is one of the best things.
Did you see the Christmas sales at Target? Holy moly. I scored so many great deals. I hit their 70% off sale (twice) and added 2 more rubbermaid containers worth of decorations to my stash. Then I hit Bed, Bath and Beyond's 50% off sale and added a few more things. Then I hit Anthro's 50% off sale and added a sweet tree and some garland to my stash. Lastly, I hit Target's 90% off sale and added a few more things! Seriously, the sales were amazing. And then (last one, I promise) we moved Esther's things from her storage unit to her house and I found a box of my Christmas decorations!
My current stash: 6 large bins, 1 large white tree and 2 small white trees. Next year, I am going to get another white tree for my dining room. Yes, I love white Christmas decorations. It works with every color and is light and bright. Just ask the guy who delivered pizza to my house - "Woa. That tree is so bright."
December is 11 short months away. Let's do this!
