I spend all summer thinking I can’t wait for fall to get here, and then it does, and then it is Christmas. It must be the business of the fall. And just like that it has come and gone.
So here is Christmas 2014 in nutshell and all out of order cause uploads just do as they please, kind of like a certain 3 1/2 year old I know:
The girls like inflatables, Michael and I don’t. I told them if I found something cool, I might buy it. I found Olaf at Target…and we all liked it…even Michael. Not to obnoxious!
Sarah was in town for Thanksgiving and we invited them over on Saturday after Black Friday to open presents with the kids. We gave the girls Elsa night gowns.
Take a look at the tree. We had tree trubs this year. We have had an artificial tree for years… and the lights went out. So I went and bought $165 worth of LED lights to restring. We ran out. I told Michael we should just buy a new tree. So we took off the new lights and I sold the tree on facebook. Then we went to Lowe’s on black Friday and bought a new one. Michael liked the tree in the picture below because it has LED lights that change from color to white, stay all color, and stay white. A week later, color lights didn’t work. Great. Friday after Christmas we returned the tree. So we didn’t have a tree to put up! Nice.
EK and I both got to attend her first grade Christmas excuse me, Winter party that I am in charge of. Last year we both had the flu.

Our elves were a little more mischevious this year…here they are pooping hershey kisses in glasses. They also set up the doll house, drank milk and cookies, and repelled down various objects.
