Our little family decorated for Christmas this week. We had to get a new Christmas tree because the one we had got ruined when the water heater leaked on it. The water heater is still leaking, by the way. I took the opportunity to buy a bigger tree that is pre-lit. I. LOVE. IT. It's so much better than the Charlie Brown tree we've used since our first Christmas as a married couple. The box of that tree said it cost us $15.88! It was seriously sad.
The first thing I did was get out our Christmas boxes. We don't that much Christmas stuff. I think there were 2 boxes and now the tree box. Chloe Jo loved putting up these window clings.
Even more, she loves to peel them off. *sigh of frustration*
After Daddy got home, we headed out for our yearly tradition of buying Christmas ornaments. We each picked one for the tree. I write our names and the year on them with magic marker. It is so fun to look at the ornaments we chose in past years!

I love getting a T-shirt every year. If you raise $100.00 or more, you can get a free T-shirt. Since the shirts ran small, Russ' didn't fit so I put it on Chloe Jo. I think she looks adorable!
She did very good during the walk. I think she enjoyed playing and riding in the stroller!

She enjoyed spinning these toys. There were three of them and she played with each one.
There were a few adults at the park, one who had two small dogs with him. Chloe Jo repeated "dog, dog, dog" over and over while she watched them run and play.
The last thing we did was swing. Chloe Jo wasn't really that interested in swinging but for a minute or so. She usually loves swinging so this one surprised me. I think she was enjoyed her free reign of the playground and didn't want to be confined!
At least I got a super cute picture of her during the minute she did swing! We sure love going to the park and are planning to go again today after lunch! Tomorrow I am planning to go to Myrtle Beach with a friend for a Christmas festival. Then on Saturday, we have the Alzheimer's Walk in the morning (we only lack $25 to reach our goal!) and we have a cleaning/fellowship/game time at the church building after the walk. It's going to be a busy couple of days!

I ended up adding quite a bit to the pattern and I love how it turned out. I have three projects in the works and am hoping to finish two of them this week and the other...well, it's kind of big so we'll see. I love making gifts and I hope the people I'm giving them to will like them, also. Russ and I aren't planning on going anywhere for Christmas this year so it will just be us and Chloe Jo. I think it will be really nice to just have the three of us. We are going to miss getting together with our family, though.
I've already started thinking of my goals for next year. Maybe I can still fulfill some of the ones from last year. Here's to hoping!
