......and this year i'm excited to actually enjoy it more! I still can't believe it's December already. I swear the years fly by faster and faster every year! I LOVE this time of year though, and as usual, I couldn't wait to start decorating! We always decorate the day after Thanksgiving. We crank up the Christmas music, have a fire going and decorate in our pajamas. That's just how we roll in the Cruz household ;) Each year I usually try and pick a theme for our tree. We've done robots, carousel animals, cameras/polaroids, etc. This year we did one that I actually wanted to do last year, but ran out of time and couldn't find the ornaments. I planned ahead this year and got exactly what I needed/wanted. So what is it? Alice in Wonderland! Nothing over the top or crazy, but still fun and cute. I was able to find a set of characters, cute little mushroom ornaments, spade/diamond/heart/club ornaments, etc and then bought a stack of cards (to represent the Queen's soldiers) and had showed my niece and PJ how to make them. Ideally we should have found a Mad Hatter hat for the top of the tree and maybe some red roses ("We're painting the roses red...."), but this will have to do for now :) Anyway, here are some of our decorations (all UNedited pics - sorry....trying to really get a break here ;) haha).........
.....and I have to post PJ's cute wish list for Santa :) .......
