Almost Christmas!

It seems like Christmas sneaked up on us this year…..  I can’t believe it is almost here… like next week!  What?

I haven’t had any wonderful planned events, mostly just trying to sneak in a little bit of Christmas fun here and there.

It took me awhile to get into a “Christmasy mood”.

I will never get used to Christmas without snow.  It’s just not the same.   We got our tree last week.  Yep you can buy real Christmas tree’s in Mexico.   It was fun taking the kids out to choose it. Apparently, hugging the tree helps you make a good decision? Haha. The highlight of the trip was not this lovely tree we found. It was the parrot we found in a cage in the back. It laughed a “people laugh” and could say “burro” (donkey).

My kids got a good laugh from the experience.   We decorated the tree that evening and then had a few treats. The kids decorated the tree how they wanted it.  It won’t win any beauty contests but we did it together and it was fun. That’s what matter mosts to me!

I’m feeling pretty blessed to have these 4 great kids under my roof this Christmas!

So what do you think?
