Christmas is coming out around our house slowly. And that is only because I have held Chris back from decorating the whole house. However Christmas around our house will be coming out fast over the next couple of weeks. This weekend Chris and i are going to finish up our Christmas shopping for Ephriam and Kendra. Yep that is right FiNISH. Meaning that yes we have already started. We will probably get some shopping done for other people while we are out but we will mostly just enjoy it being just Chris and I since we don’t get out just the two of us much. I am looking forward to having a meal where I don’t have to feed a 2 year old or clean up spilled milk or even maybe I will get to eat my dinner while it is hot.
Anyways back to Christmas. Next weekend we are going for a Polar Express train ride where we will not only get to take a real train ride but we will also get to see Santa and have our Polar Express book signed by him. Then on Sunday the kids will get to see Santa again at Schroder. We had done this since Ephriam was a baby for Chris’ Grandma to show off her great grandkids.
On Dec. 6th Ephriam will get to take his first trip to pick out our Christmas Tree. We were going to take him last year but we got lots of rain the night before we were going so we didn’t think he would make it through the mud. This year however he should be big enough to walk out and find a tree.
Then we will totally be in Christmas mode. Part of me can’t wait while the other part doesn’t want to start too soon to get burnt out on Christmas before it gets here. So for now we wait.
