It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I had the day off yesterday for Veteran’s Day. I decided to take advantage of my free time and get the Christmas decorations out! I feel so much better having this out of the way now and I can relax and enjoy it. I know it’s EARLY…don’t judge. I still want to get a few more decorative items to put around the house and I need to get our stockings embroidered, but after that I think I’ll be finished.

Β When I took the tree out of the box Connor freaked out a little bit. He didn’t know what to think of the BIG green thing! Ha..ha..so far he has steered clear of the tree!

I still need to put the star on top.
I love these jars with ornaments in them

AND….what would my tree be without Starbucks ornaments???

It was so nice to have the day off yesterday and be a “stay at home mom” for the day! I loved it and it’s so hard for me to leave this little guy every morning. He’s my love.
When Terence got home yesterday we took full advantage of the Veteran’s Day discounts and got a free pizza at BJ’s Restaurant, Terence got a free lunch at Chili’s, and we went to Lowe’s and got 10% discount off an air filter! Woohoo! I’m so thankful for all of our soldiers and all the sacrifices they’ve made for our country. We really are blessed to live in the United States ya’ll! If you want to read about Terence’s Iraq experience HERE you can.

Connor was in such a happy mood last night he was jibber jabbering all night. It was the cutest thing so I snapped some pics of him and his Daddy πŸ™‚

My Mom bought this outfit for Connor last November at the Cracker Barrel. Here he is wearing the dinosaur outfit this year. What a difference a year makes! Cracker Barrel has the cutest baby clothes!

“ROAR!”

Hope you are all having a great Friday friends!

    You are a true go getter!

    I wish we could decorate now! We always get a real tree, and keeping it almost fresh looking in December is hard enough! It is so hot here the tree wilts and browns real quick.

    I have the Starbucks ornament too! (and a super cute reindeer, and all the Starbucks Christmas CDs…)

    No judging here!! My tree has been up for a week!!
    And we have the same Starbs ornaments… of course! What would a tree be without them?!?!
    And I love all the shades of blue… it just has such an icy, wintry feel! Gorgeous!
