sickness is upon us and early decorating

UGGGGG McKenzie has had a terrible cold & cough for a week now. We have done everything in our power to keep her away from the baby. Sunday night Crew starting coughing and was so stuffy. Now today he is worse. he has an appointment Wed. To get his vaccination shots so I am trying to hold off on taking him to the doctor. I know there is not much they can do. I am so worried his cold is going to turn into RSV. To top it off I have to drag him out today because McKenzie has an eye appointment. Apparently she failed the eye test at school so we are taking her to get checked.
My girls have been bothering us to decorate for Christmas. I know alot of you are saying Already?? Well, decorating is a huge deal at our house. Decorations go everywhere. We figured where we had a bunch of sickies and no one is eating Thanksgiving dinner here, it would be o.k. Of course then I went and sprayed everything down with Lysol.

It was McKenzie's turn this year to top the tree.


The girls enjoyed decorating the tree

And what did Crew do? WELL HE WATCHED OF COURSE!

I was wondering why your Christmas lights were up! I'm avid about celebrating each holiday at a time.. :) but hey..your tree looks great and I'm sure you all had a fun time!

That looks so fun. It looks like the girls really love it and look forward to it. I think it's neat to establish traditions like that.

I like your tree. You're better than me, I have no desire to dig mine out of the basement. I'll be lucky if it gets up before December 15. I love that picture of Crew. Oh my gosh, he's getting chubby. So stinkin cute. Hope ya'll get feeling better so we can hang out soon.

Oviously you are not alone with the Christmas festivities. I think it is great you have already put up your decorations. Christmas is magical and the kids love it. There is no reason to not let it last longer. I hope your family is feeling better.

Your tree looks great. Please come over and put up my tree! I cut one down a couple of days ago but don't have the desire to bring it in the house and set it up. It is a very nice tree. The Parks department took great care in trimming and watering it over the years.
