Luckily our tree didn't do that today. We had a great day! We didn't go to church today. We decorated our tree in the am. We cleaned and did laundry for the week ahead. I recently got a sizeable travel check and John and I have been kicking around ideas of what to do with it. Technically it should have gone on the credit card. Well I suggested to John that we go to Target with it and get everyone a special early christmas gift and some other stuff that we just plain needed, like socks. So we went and Target is a great place! I got my Allison Krauss CD and I already listened to it, it is great, her style is so unique and relaxing. Ashley and I got new socks and Ashley got a new Christmas Dress to wear during our celebrations, it is so cute, I love having a girl when it comes to clothes and dressing them! I wanted to get Ashley a new DVD of the Wiggles but Target didn't have any which surprised me, however they did have a musical CD of Wiggles music so we snacthed that right up for her. She has already listened to it twice!
This year I thought I would help out by putting the lights on the tree, usually John does this for me. I tested all of the strands and each worked, of four total. I put them all on and plugged it in and sure enough one of the middle strands was out!! Don't you just hate it when that happens? Well, John was able to fix it, as he does most things around here. I don't know how many times I've said to A. during the day, Daddy will fix that when he gets home.
Above are pictures of Ashley putting a star on top. It was entirely her idea, we usually put an Angel on top but I liked her I idea and I think it looks nice, so we'll keep it. The other picture is our refurbished frosty, he has been a snowman twice. He is now on stilts. :-)
