It's beginning to look like Christmas


But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

~Galatians 5:22,23~


Lilyann tasting the lightbulbs--i know, not a good thing, but it was a Kodak moment
Checking to see who was watching her~~she did manage to stand on tiptoes and grab that bell

Dakota putting the candycanes back on the tree and more than likely telling Lily, "No, sir!"

Christmas time is once again upon us. So, Let's all spread some joy and cheer.
Dakota and Lilyann are loving the Christmas tree and all the new things they think they can play with. This year, the tree has all plastic ornaments..so if the kids succeed in playing, nothing will get broken. All is child-proof..or so i think! Dakota was so excited to finally have a Christmas tree inside our house. When I first pulled the Christmas tree out of the shed, I put it together in the garage and plugged it in to see if the lights still worked. Only half of the bulbs worked; so as not to have to buy a new tree, I decided to take the strings of lights off. What a tedious job that was. I secretly think that you have to be all hyped up on coffee and sugar to be the one to put all the lights on those pre-lit artificial trees. Wowzers!! let me tell you, that took a better part of my morning unstringing lights. But I saved myself about $40 not having to go and buy another tree. This tree was/is our first Christmas tree we bought. I was pregnant with Dakota; and I got off work early to go to Walgreen's to find the last tree that they had on sale (this was a Black Friday sale item) A 6 ft pre-lit tree for $9.99...what a deal!! and this year, it proved to be a good deal as well. I'm all about good deals around here.
With the Holiday season in full swing, Dakota loves seeing all the lights on the way home. We are attempting to put up lights on the front of our house, but we still haven't gotten around to it..hopefully, soon.
It's beginning to look (and feel) alot like Christmas! Let's spread some cheer!

Cute pics. We just put our tree up last night. We have a 16 & 1/2 month old. So hard to keep them away from it.
