Ready for Christmas

I think that we are almost ready for Christmas around here. The tree is up, all the shopping is done, Kirsten's dress is made, Christmas cards are finished, and we visited Santa. We still need to put lights up outside, mail the Christmas cards, and make the pajamas. I decided that the niece and nephew presents will not get finished, so they will have to be for birthdays this year.
We had to put the Tree in front of the fireplace this year because our normal spot is now taken up by the bigger TV and entertainment center we aquired this year. So the stockings are on the counter and no fires this year, but oh well.

Yesterday our neighborhood had a breakfast with Santa at the clubhouse. It is always so beautifully decorated with such good food. Kirsten loved seeing Santa this year. She woke up at 6 am begging to go. It was great to have time to visit with so many friends while enjoying a great breakfast. I feel blessed to live in such a great neighborhood. So here are this year's Santa pictures (I didn't splurge for the professional ones this year-we are trying to cut back).

Just a few more weeks until Kacey's wedding and then Christmas!!!

On a side note, my oldest niece, Sarah, is 14 today! Where has time gone?
