Decking the Halls.

I love this time of year.
I couldn't wait to pull out all of my decorations.
All the memories.
This year, I added a lot of new ornaments to my tree,
replacing many of my more sentimental ones.
It was tough.
They will sit in a box,
until we are a 2 tree house.
That day will come.
Here's a glimpse of our Christmas decor.

I am making a red polka dotted ruffle table runner.
But, it isn't completed yet (or really even started),
so you'll have to use your imagination.

Having a mantle is so much fun!!

Our elf "Buddy" has returned.
And, he has been a mischievous little guy this year.
Drawing horns on our family pictures,
swimming in marshmellow bathes,
and watching a "drive-in" movie with Barbie.
The girls have been so excited to see what he's been up to every morning.
I must take a few pictures of his nightly shannagins.

My tree!!
I am so happy with the way it turned out.
I wanted to remove the large amounts of PINK and LIME green in my tree.
I was just a little tired of it after 5 years.
So, here is my happy white, red and TEAL tree.

Oh Ansley.

I feel like I often get to write all the cute funny things Olivia says, because as Ansley gets older she doesn't say as many.
So, when Curtis came home from taking Ansley to school the other morning I was loving this cute story:
(Liv rode with them, and they were passing the the local nursing home.)
O: Ansley, look at those nice new apartments!
A: Those aren't apartments, that's a nursing home.
O: No they are apartments .
C: No, Olivia that's where the old people go to live.
A: Don't call them old people....
Call them... Over aged.
My cute girl, I am so happy she still has those sweet/funny moments.
They are mixed in with a lot of sass these days ;)

Catch up.

We have been really busy.
I like to be busy, and I totally do it to myself, but this was a bit much.
And, really I am not even sure what I was so busy with.
Why do I do that to myself!?
Here's life according to my cell phone.
More detailed update to come.

For now: (in no particular order.)
Letters to Santa.
Crafts. Crafts. And more crafts.
Snow coat love.
Lala loopsy love.
