O Tannenbaum

We were going to be out of town this entire week. Unfortunately one stretch of road where we had to pass had about 10 inches of snow and since Tug's mandatory meeting was cancelled so was our trip. The girls cried while I unpacked all the luggage I had packed the night before. To make them feel better Tug took them to get a tree yesterday. We then spent the day baking cookies (Tug bought the tube kind), listening to carols and decorating the tree (all Tug's idea). The girls were very excited to receive their first present today. It is from Auntie Erin and Uncle Chendo and they are anxious to open it since it is from their favorite place.

Off to the post office to cancel my 'hold mail'. Hmm, post office the week before Christmas, I should be in and out in no time!

The rest of the presents are for Tug and me from the girls. They picked random things from their room and wrapped them.

3 people are laughing with me:

Aw, shucks. How great to get a shout out on the blog. The American Girl present does look lovely under your tree, if I do say so myself.

Jessica said...

Looks beautiful! Your girls are so cute! I love that they wrapped up "random things" for you and Tug!

My girls have been doing that too! Well, at least Jane. Anne and Emma made things with yarn. I wouldn't be surprised if you get a pretty chic handknit finger scarf for Christmas, R!
