It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

We spent most of our weekend decorating our home for Christmas. I'll be honest and say, it was definitely crazy decorating and being productive with four little ones wanting to "help".

The decorations are far from perfect,
but we had fun, laughed, and made special memories as we decorated together!

Shane's job was trying to untangle all the outside lights!! Oh the JOY!!!

Sophie and Riley playing with their little Fisher Price nativity.
Not sure what Sophie's face was all about-ha!

Riley having fun in the Christmas decorations!

We decided it was best to set the tree up in the foyer this year. Normally, we put it in the living room, but this year we decided to place it where it was out of reach from (you can guess who's) sweet, little hands.

The boys actually did a great job helping me decorate the tree, but Sophie girl was more interested in taking the ornaments off-ha!

Sweet Hudson was entertained by it all!

As we decorated, we cranked up the music and sang/danced along to our favorite Christmas carols.

I'm going to participate in the Nester's (LOVE her!) tour of homes on December 14th!

Christmas Tour of Homes with The Nester

I am SO... excited and can't wait to peek inside other homes and enjoy
looking at every one's beautiful Christmas decorations!
Oh-- the inspiration!

I hope you will join in on the fun too!

Ahhh they joys (not) of Christmas lights! Jay spent three hours getting all the Christmas lights untangled and up outside and just as he was finishing one of the cords blew out ALL of the lights we had already put up. To say it was frustrating...major understatement!!! But at least the tree is up! :-)
