Let the birthday festivities begin!

We love Christmas! It's definitely the most fun birthday celebration we throw around here all year!!! Candy Canes, an absurd amount of glitter, Texas Santa, and even a strand of color lights this year! We are getting crazy!!! We love celebrating the birth of JESUS!!!

We had a ball decorating the tree this year. I let those boys go to town and they did a great job! Oh they were so into it and it was precious. I told that middle boy of mine he might want to decorate the part by the door a bit more. He yelled, "I GOT IT MOM!!!" Pretty huh?!
I'm loving this ornament!!! It makes me happy!

Texas Santa standing on the ottoman. He shakes his money maker and sings Have A Holly Jolly Christmas!

Fuzzy picture but you get the idea. Do you see em'? Color lights!!! Mama's getting wild in her old ate! Age that is...

This was Soooo much fun to make!

So, there you have it! Now, when you see us walking around with glittery bums you will know why. I have an unhealthy obesseion with the stuff.

About my layout-I KNOW!!! I first saw it a couple of weeks ago but thought it was too early to use it so I've been waiting for this moment. I love it so much too. It's perfect! Feel free to steal it or look at her other awesome holiday layouts.

I love the name of your blog! I noticed you stopped by mine and I wanted to introduce myself! I'm a mom of 6 trying to keep my head above water dealing with life's chaos.

Your tree is great. The ice skate is exactly what I would love on my tree. Our family has a tradition of getting one new ornament per kid the night before Christmas. The result is a very unruly heavy laden un-matching Charlie Brown like tree that we all love. It's full of memories but I'm not keen on putting it in my front room:)

Girl, I was outvoted this year ...colored lights on the tree. Not my style, but is Christmas really about style? Chloe's thrill and making her memories is way worth it!:)
