it's that time of year!, part 2

On to the ornaments!

What do you need?: 
  • diaper box (any cardboard works)
  • random paints
  • paint brush
  • thread
  • scissors

Another reason to do decorations out of your recylcing bin?
You do not have to care what your kids do to the tree.
Lily has already taken to decorating, de-decorating, decorating (repeat and repeat) and I don't care.
Really the only thing I have to watch out for is Eden snacking on some light bulbs. Zappy YUM!

Other December tips:
  • When listening to Pandora select: Frank Sinatra (holiday) and then click "add variety" and add Mormon Tabernacle Choir (holiday). Best mix ever. What Christmas music is supposed to sound like. No Maria to worry about.
  • Make your hot chocolate like this: Almond milk, cocoa, sugar, and a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, & cloves. Basically a dream in a mug.
ps-  The star: TP roll, and star cut-out, taped together.

Awesome! If you can get a hold of some wrapping paper, you can wrap all of your pictures on the wall to add some holiday spirit:)

I just wanted to let you know that we ARE going to come for that wedding on New Year's Eve:) I think it will be fun! Thanks for letting us stay at your place. I am excited for our girls to play together:)
