So, lately we have been doing the Christmas hussle. 90% of the Christmas shopping was completed before Thanksgiving, but it still seems we are VERY busy. We are (somewhat) enjoying the 90 degree temperatures. Carson insists on asking if he can wear his flip-flops. I finally told him that it is just mommies rule- No flip flops in December! So he has settled for sleeping in only his underwear for 3 consecutive nights!
We broke down this year and decided to decorate the oudside of the house. 2 deer and some outdoor trees, and the kids are estatic. In fact, every time we leave the house Caelyn says, 'Good- bye deer, good-bye Christmas tree, see you soon!'. Absolutely hilarious!
We (Carson and Caelyn) had a great idea of having a tree in their rooms. So our idea of a small (2-3 foot tree) somehow has resulted in a 7 foot tree in each of their rooms. I have to admit that they did a great job. Carson has a traditional green tree. He chose red lights and decorated it with all of our firetruck ornaments. The 'angel' is a fire helmet'. Very cute. Caelyn's choice was a white tree decorated with purple lights, and yes, pink and purple feather boas! It is also very cute. I think they will be very sad to see the season come to and end. Maybe they will be distracted by all of the toys they receive.
These are some recent photos when we lasted visited Asheville, yes it was COLD!!
Carson is becoming ever inquisitive. He is now adding and subtracting and spelling out many words. He talks everyday about kindergarten! Caelyn is still chasing Ray. She does gymnastics once a week and still has amazing flexibility. She is becoming much better at listening, but she still finds it so hard to stay concentrated! Regardless, she is cute!
Hopefully, we'll actually doing something worth posting on here! Seems we are stuck in the daily grind right now. Enjoy the pictures... Love you all!
