It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas


Last night I broke out the Christmas decorations.  In doing so, I planned to purge any decorations I hadn't used in years due to my basement space getting a bit cramped with boxes.  I have lots of decorations, but some are sort of getting a bit dated and old crappy looking.  I am so bad about throwing my Christmas stuff out or donating it, or should I say 'not' throwing it out.  I always think that maybe I will use it the next year.  I ended up boxing most stuff I didn't use right back up.

I was sort of excited about getting the tree decorated, but honestly, this is the first year my two older kids didn't seem thrilled about helping out. I turned on some Christmas music to help create the mood, and they ended up getting into the spirit once we got started, but before hand, I felt like they were really wishing they were outside playing with their friends.

Madison was a bit disappointed that we weren't able to put up our annual big Christmas tree, but I decided with a crawling seven month old and the risk of him messing with the tree,  and facing possible choking hazards, it just isn't worth it. With a recent visit to the doctor for a well-visit, I was reminded of the number of chokings that happen due to Christmas tree decorations.  This year we put a six foot tree on top of a table, and I think it worked out nicely.  Below you can see that it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Phillips' house....... 








Don't you just love the holidays!
