It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Well, December has finally arrived, and with it came my Mother and my Brother Troy, and Remy the Rattatouille Rat x 3. (They arrived just before Thanksgiving actually, which for some reason I don't seem to have any Thanksgiving pictures... hmmm? It was lovely anyways, best dinner I've had in a LONG time.)

SO today we went out to the storage unit, dragged all the Christmas boxes inside and started setting up Christmas. We got our tree and our snowmen up so far. We also opened up our chocolate advent calendars and had our first chocolate.

After bath time we started our new tradition, which is opening up a book or two every night (they're wrapped in paper) and reading the stories. Tonight we got two, one about Christmas cookies, and the other about snowmen and how they orginated. Very cute. Nana read the cookie book, and Daddy read the Snowman book.


  1. The kids have been begging me to try out the new mini golf place. We'll have to go sometime soon. I'm glad to see that you are enjoying the Christmas season. Oh...and tell Liam congrats on learning how to blow a bubble. That's tough stuff. Next...whistling.

  2. so glad to see your still alive! looks like you had so much fun with your mom and brother there. that is such a fun tradition with the books and chocolate. i bet the boys love it.
