Last day of November

I cant believe that in just a few short hours it will be December.
December is such a fun but busy month.
The hubby and I will be celebrating our 6th year of marriage, the little lady will turn 9 months old (sigh), we will be going on our first winter camping trip, we get to celebrate the wonderful holiday of Christmas and we will say goodbye to the year 2010.
There were so many things that I needed to do today but none were as important as spending some time with the littles.
So today we went on a magic adventure in our very own living room. We turned off all the lights in the house and switched on the Christmas tree.
 We hunted for berried treasure and found a box full of treasures from Christmas's from years past.
 Five or more years of Christmas cards. Sometimes its good to be a pack rat.
 The littles had fun looking at all the pictures. The little man thought that it was fun to go hunting for people he knows in the pictures.
 We played make believe. The little man drove the lift truck with daddy inside and the two of them put up all the Christmas light on our tree.
 By now the little lady was getting tired from all of the fun play.
 Until she finally gave in and the two littles napped peacefully under the twinkle of the Christmas tree lights.
And I was able to tip toe away and get a few of the house hold chores done.

What a sweet day. Mine involved really poor Animal Farm presentations & a discussion about why Twilight is a horrible book. Then I came home to a messy house & grumpy husband. JOY!

I want to nap under your Christmas tree, too!

That sounds like a perfect day. It's so fun when everyone plays together instead of Mom doing things (i.e cleaning) while the kiddos play. The icing on the cake is that they napped next to the tree. That's awesome

Lovely shots - and enjoy your winter camping trip! I love it, but don't know if I would do it with my 4-month-old Pie! We'll be heading into the forest this weekend for our Christmas Tree/Hanukkah bush, and can't wait to get some shots! Thank you for sharing your site on the AP group, I'm enjoying it!
