Christmas Decorating

I LOVE Christmas! So last night after we got home from Meemaw's I pulled out our Christmas decorations and put up the tree. I put the tree together and turned on the lights before the girls went to bed. I had put some of the ornaments on when I heard Allie come out of her room. Her eyes were open and she had a huge smile on her face when she the tree with decorations on it. We let her stay up with us for while as I deocrated the tree. She was so excited. I wish I had taken a picture of her kissing the princess ornaments that I have gotten them over the past 2 years, it was so cute. When I was finshed I put her back to bed, which she was not happy about. This was about 9:45 (yes, I know it was late but every once in a while does not hurt). She was up talking to Raymond this morning at 6:40!!! When she realized I was awake she wanted the tree lights turned on.

A little later Abby got up and was happy to see that the tree was decorated as well. As I was sitting on the bed with Raymond while he was getting ready for work Abby comes running in and says, "Thank you Mommy."

"For what?" I ask.
"For making the tree so beautiful. I love it."
I said, "Your welcome."

We spent the rest of the morning deocrating our house, in and out, and trying to figure out why the outside garland will not light up. We never did find out why. I will take pictures later and post them.

This afternoon while Allie was napping, Abby and I were laying on my bed talking about what we are going to Granny, Papaw, Meemaw, Daddy, etc... for Christmas. When I asked her what we should get Daddy (Raymond) for Christmas Abby says' "a big screen TV."

You think Raymond might have put Abby up to that one? :) I too love Christmas, our tree went up Wednesday before all our relatives got here. Madison loves the tree...she is knows some of the ornaments that are hers and points them out to everyone :) As for staying up won't hurt them one bit. Ours always stay up late when their cousins are here. I think it was midnight by the time Taylor finally fell asleep last night :)
