First of all, Colt McCoy owes his stroke of good fortune to this kid:
who donned longhorn cheer skirt and bevo slippers while yelling ‘Gooooo Longhorns!” before the game even started.
We put up our not 1 not 2, but 3 Christmas trees… (truthfully before Thanksgiving)… but I’m just now saying it. Jeff was pretty sure last year when I came home with 3 trees from a after Christmas sale that we were going to have to sell tickets to the ‘freak show’ that was going to take place in our house this year. However, I LOVE them… and I think he was pleasantly surprised.
I bought two keepsake boxes for Lily and the new baby to keep all of their special ornaments in every year. Lily already picked her favorite. Having a 2nd kid really brings a lot of things into perspective for me… as a 2nd kid. Sad.
I’m so excited to have 2 stockings up this year… can’t wait to settle on a name so that we can visit the embroidery shop.
Nubbin got a special break. Lily is way into Strawberry Shortcake right now… who conveniently for Nubbin, has a horse friend named Honey Pie. Therfore, Nubbin has been renamed ‘Honey Pie’ and is moved out to the living room every morning so Lily can ride on him while she watches ‘A Berry Merry Christmas’.
Sidenote: this child rarely wears pants indoors. One trip to the bathroom, and we’re lucky to even get her undies back on.
Lukie B. came to visit on Wednesday and they painted some mitten ornaments. This makes Lily’s 3rd special ornament this year so far… I’ve got to find a new craft for us to do or the baby will never be able to catch up.
