It's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS!



Yes, the tree is FINALLY up! After about 30minutes of trying to figure out where to put it, I finally decided! AJ and I decorated it in about 20 minutes! Of course all of her ornaments are centrally located towards the bottom of the tree..LOL I was amazed that she was actually asking where certain ornaments of her were. Like her Elmo on a Candy Cane she got for her first Christmas and the Cookie Monster she got the next year. The girl definitely has a memory! Today I will try to get the rest of the house decorations up and Web said he will start the outside for me.
