Christmas Tree

We put our tree up yesterday! YAY!
 It makes me happy to see it up.
We have a small fake tree but it's our tree and I love it.
We let the kids decorate pretty much the whole thing themselves this year.
It's so cute and funny! 1 branch has about 7 ornaments on it thanks to Blake.

I got them little Santa hats at the 99 cent store to wear while they decorated and I think they looked adorable!

Each year we get the kids and ornament. I LOVE this tradition.
 Blake got a fire truck this year.

And Bella got a baby on a moon. She loves both of those things.

And plus when I was a baby got a very similar ornament. So now we both have one.

After we were done decorating I was talking to Blake about Santa.
If he knew who he was which he said DADDY!
And then we talked about his sleigh and reindeer and all that fun stuff.
A couple minutes later Blake goes
"MOM, you hear that?
It's Santa Claus!
We all start to laugh and then he goes
"I think it's not Santa, it's just a car"

Funny stuff!!!

Here is a couple more pics from yesterday's fun.

Say What?

Blake has been cracking me up lately with his spunky remarks.
The other day he wanted something (I can't recall what it was) but I said no.
Then Bella woke up from her nap so I went in to change her and she asked me if I was happy to which I replied "yes I'm happy are you happy?"
Bella: "Bella, HAPPY!"
Then Blake appears in the door and says
"I'M MAD!" and storms off!
This might not sound to funny but he showed up in that door way like a ninja and I just couldn't stop laughing.

The kids have had coughs forever! Going on 4 weeks now. The dr said it's just a virus but it's so annoying!
I got them ready for bed and was getting their medicine ready and they were going CRAZY!! So I say..
"Hold on I only have two hands!"
Blake then says:  "And two feet and ONE WEENIE!"
I laugh and say no girls don't have weenies and he says:
"That's right you have one butt"

I need to find myself. 
 I need to learn the secret of being content in any and every situation just like Paul did in Philippians.
I need to find my light again and let it shine
I need to do things that bring me joy.
Light candles
Play with my kids.
I have lost myself somewhere in these hard times
and need to get back to the basics and find my contentment and happiness.
