We're decorating our house and the Christmas tree tonight and I'm beyond excited. I'm so excited that it was worth trekking down to scary underworld (a.k.a. our basement) this morning to bring a few things up.
We're waiting until Joe gets home before opening anything but Madeline wants to open the mysterious boxes so badly. I finally had to re-stack them in a corner and shoved the couches together.
But I'll admit, the suspense is killing me, too. However, I'm not doing myself any favors by listening to Christmas music literally all day long.
I looked away for two seconds to take a picture of Madeline hovering over the stack and by the time I looked up, she already opened a box and was giving me her standard "I know I just committed a crime but can I please, please continue?" look.
It's hard to say no to.
But that's how much I love decorating as a family and making it an event.
Sigh. Is it 5 p.m. yet?
And I want to make these so badly. I'll let you know how they go.
