ok, so maybe...just maaaaybeee, i forgot to publish this little post entitled, "what we have NOT been doing". it was all about how i was a slacker and hadn't "put up" the tree, and finished decorating the house.
how we (bauer, vivian and i) spent an entire day inside last week. (yep, folks that is a RARE thing around here!)
and how it was the best day i can recall in a loooooong time. even sweet little mr. bauer, who is normally so energetic took an extra nap on his "special pallet" that his big sister made for him.
the kids also discovered a new love of the dora car...and shared BEA-Utifully!!
ohhhh, but alas....i must have forgot to post. and by the time i figured it out....this cute little girl was posing in front of...
THE tree!!! :) finally all dressed in it's "mardi gras" glory (that's clif's nickname for the frou frou topper.)
and my mother's nativity...safely displayed on top of my china hutch.
and beautiful little boy's in christmas plaid, posing in front of the tree.
