It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Christmas came a little early for Kendall & Nicole this year. Since they spent last Christmas with us, it's their Mom's turn to have them so we celebrated while Nicole & Grandma were here. We decided if we're going to have Chrsitmas early, we needed to make it look like Christmas around here so we were the first in our neighborhood to hang lights and the first in the country to put up our Christmas tree! We had the tree up and decorated before Thanksgiving. We all had a really nice time decorating together. We put on some Christmas music and the 5 of us trimmed the tree. Jay and Nicole took care of the outside decorations while Grandma and I decorated the inside while Kendall was at school. Since Nicole was leaving on the 25th and we wanted the girls to have their Christmas together, they celebrated with Grandma and Grandpa Willett on Thanksgiving and on the Friday following Thanksgiving we had our Christmas with them and Grandma. The girls got to cross several items off of their wish lists (new boots, comforter, DVD's, CD's, jewelry, candy, PJ's, devotionals, Bratz slumber party, Bible cover, the list goes on) and it was so nice to be able to open presents with Grandma instead of having to ship the gifts off and discuss later over the phone. Grandma got Jay and I a new router so we no longer lose internet connection 10 times a day (thank you!) and I got some yummy body cream and Jay got some new cologne. We got Grandma a picture frame and mat with the letters G-R-A-N-D-M-A with cut-outs for photographs and printed out pictures from her stay here so she will have lasting memories. We sure wish the girls could be here on December 25th, but it was nice to have them for Thanksgiving, so it's a trade-off. And, at least we were able to celebrate together, no matter the date!
