we decorated for Christmas.

We got all of the stuff from the garage last week to transform the house into a winter wonderland. Out came all of the lights, Santas, stockings, Advent calendar, garland, wreath, coffee mugs, dishes, Santa cheese spreader knives, nativity scene, more lights, candles, bows, the winter village, snowmen, ornaments, and the tree. We made eggnog and cooked pizza. Julia crashed out and didn't make it for the hanging of the ornaments but Coan stayed up until ten helping.



After a while the eggnog kicked in and the tree started to look like this...




Not really, I'm just kidding you. It looked more like this...




It took a few days but we finally got all of the decorations up. For one day Stephanie was nice enough to let me have a Dallas Cowboys Christmas tree...




All of the Christmas specials have been coming on television recently and it's the first year that Coan has enjoyed watching them (over and over and over again). He asked Santa Claus for a remote control Superman that flies around. We were stunned when we actually found one. I think he was making it up but they really do exist.

Stephanie wouldn't let you have a Dallas Cowboy's Cheerleader tree, huh? Maybe next year.

That would be the best present EVER!
