last year's christmas was amazing. our little boy was only 4 days old. we didn't go anywhere because the roads were icy. didn't want to take a chance with the little man out in the cold and me or eric falling on our butts. so we stayed home. our little family. liam in his christmas pjs. all cozy with us taking turns holding him. this year he will be one when it is christmastime. it is going to be so magical. i have already started to shop for him. got a few ideas up my sleeve. course we need to find birthday presents too. so it's time to shop. i have a few things i want to go get before the sale ends this week. oh the boy...he is going to be getting a lot i bet :)
i used to love christmas. the lights. the music. and something happened that made me hate it. won't go into detail. but now my favorite time is alive again. i am so excited to decorate the house. we need to get living room organized as to where to put it. i do want to paint the living room and dining room. not sure if we can do that by thanksgiving or not. yes, the tree will be up that night.
traditions. i don't know what traditions we will set just yet. i think we'll see how that goes and add each year. probably when he is a bit older we can set solid ones that he will remember.
anyways...i am super excited for this time of year. i missed it so much.
i am excited to say that i am on dianne rigdon's creative team. here is my first layout using a kit called "now i lay" that is at 2peas in a bucket.
