Christmas time! :)

Hi everyone :)

Brookie and I decorated the house this weekend for Christmas and I wanted to share the photos :)

My friend Jason came over to help put up the tree and helped with the outside lights too :)

And for those always doubting me when I say my daughter is a giant (trust me, I mean that in a good way!) ... our tree is 7 feet tall ... and well .. look at her next to it .... just sayin' :) 








Those sweet Gingerbread men and brown reindeer are made by Audrey!! :)




A countdown banner I made last year! :)




That little adorable stuffed snowman in the front right corner of our wall unit is made by Audrey :)






We are still using our countdown calendar I made ... counting the days until Daddy returns to the US :)




5 years of Santa photos .. 5 years of Nutcracker frames to hold them :)




Her little tree on her homework desk :)











She decorated the tree all by herself  :)




This years family ornament :)




And Brookie is on the swim team, so we bought this ornament for her this year .... there wasn't any girl swimmer ones ... so we got the boy swimmer ... and I was thinking the whole time ... "Ummmm there isn't just Michael Phelps in this world ... there are Michelle's too!" ... lol :)  But Brookie was ok having the boy one ... so there's that :)





The outside lights :)










Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  28. Oh, my gracious, girl! You two have been busy, little elves; and all while Bryan is out of town, too?! He's sure going to be surprised when he gets home. Have a blessed Thanksgiving, love! Oh, and put a brick on Brookie's head. It slows down the growing process ;). LOL! My eldest just passed me up last month. Sigh.
