Finally! The tree is up! The full tree and all it's wonderful decorations. We do colorful, blinking lights, garland and a TON (repeat...TON) of various decorations. Almost all are made by one of the children through the years (and with my oldest almost 18, that's a lot of years), gifts given to one of us, ones that I have bought, ones that I made when I was pregnant with one of them, etc. etc. etc. We have a hodgepodge of decorations and I love it. My 14 yo son and (almost) 10 yo daughter are decorating it, their favorite part. Oh and sorry for the picture quality, it was taken with my phone...but you all get the gist, right?
Yup, my daughter is in her leotard and tights still...LOL. She had her Peter Pan Ballet auditions today. We could actually watch the audition, which is unusual. Not everyone will be cast, so, it's kind of exciting. There were 41 children her age there, I think 30 max will be cast. She was one of 6 that were asked to stay after auditions and show them a tumbling trick. So, that was neat.
We were suppose to go to my company's christmas party last night. It snowed all day yesterday (surprise, surprise) and all the kids were here last night, my oldest didn't have to work and my step-son was here, plus one of their friends. We had a full house. It was such a fun, cozy night, I didn't feel like leaving. My daughter and I watched movies, my husband played his computer game (SHOCKER!) and the boys played Halo3 and had a great time. We ordered in chinese and stayed all snug as bug in a rug last night and it was worth it!
And tomorrow, back to work and start the week all over again...
