We started off yesterday by going to pick out our Christmas tree. We went to a nursery and had a super visit which was enough to land us the perfect tree.
|This is the one!!|
|I think she looks so grown-up in this picture!|
|Olivia shows off her candy cane reindeer|
|Madeline poses with Frosty and her reindeer|
|They each decorate their own cookie, which then lasted less than a minute before being consumed!|
|Olivia approves of her cookie. I mean, what could be bad about a ton of frosting and sprinkles!|
|"My hands are NOT sticky!"|
|Holding very still for "Frozen" snowflakes|
|Olivia shows off her snowman hand painting, puppy from Santa and her snowy owl all at once.|
|Mmmm, what winter festival would be complete without some hot cocoa?|
|Posing with Santa|
|Reading to him a book about Cheetahs.|
The evening was filled with fun while we got the tree decorated.
|"Celebration" decides to join in the fun|
|"Look at my tattoo"|
|Listening to see if the ornament still plays its music.|
Madeline got the honors of turning the Christmas train on for the first time.
|It's a go!|
|"All gone!" Nevermind that more than half was spilled down her face and shirt. I think she was trying to slurp out the marshmallows!|
We're having a major debate on name. Brian and I are not sold on "Celebration." Its a long name and doesn't seem quite fitting for him. We really like Sneaky, as Olivia has been saying for nearly a month that she would name a new puppy Sneaky. And he has cute little white paws that look just like little sneakers-perfect for a dog named Sneaky.
As you can see, Brian and I have a tough fight ahead! Either way, we are super excited to welcome a new little ball of fun to the house!
