A Weekend of Lovely Maddness~

Our house is upside down, in a nice way. On Thanksgiving, we got out all the Christmas decorations, including the tree and the kids got every single thing out. It was funny when we pulled out the "white tree" it had yellowed for some reason. It was ok, I wanted a real tree anyway this year. We have been having a great time decorating our house, and getting everything ready. I cant believe advent begins on Sunday! We have lots of beautiful reading, and crafts planned, and I am almost finished with the Jessie Tree.

Our long awaited park opened down the street last week, so that has been super exciting. Friends have been coming over and we all head down to ther together. It is so neat. Will post pictures on of these days.

We just spent a lovely weekend in Lake Tahoe, NV. It was great to have some family time. What a magical place! After a couple of days, Lucy said "do you have to keep saying view, view, view?" The girls collected lots of pine cones for us to decorate for Christmas, and had fun exploring the lake.

Right now I am attempting to put the house back together since the trip, and prepare for Thanksgiving. It is always so fun to go away, and so wonderful to be back home.
I can sense the Christmas madness around the corner, so much to plan and prepare.
