I have this week off from work which is so wonderful. And I have been very productive thus far. Yesterday we took my grandmother shopping and today my sister took the girls to the mall all afternoon and I put the outside lights up.
This was the first year that I was in charge of decorating the outside and you can tell because there are WAY more lights than previous years. Unforunately we have 2 big trees by the house and one of them blinks and one does not. I bought the wrong lights for one of them. Oh well. Too late to fix it now. I am kind of wondering how much our power bill will be going up this month.
I also finally got some stockings. They are enormous but honestly I bought them for their cuteness, not for their possible storage area. The girls already have stuff in them. (a toy remote control and some nesting blocks).
And Matt and I are DONE shopping for the girls, Laura, and my grandmother. Hey, its a start! We got the girls a play kitchen since they love their little crawl through one. This one they will be able to grow into. They wont be able to reach some of it yet but I remember playing with our kitchen for so long. I think this one will be like that (I hope)
The other thing we got them is a climber. They love to slide and try to find a way to slide down anything, especially in the tub much to my chagrin. We can keep it downstairs until it is warm enough to play outside.
And then I found this, and I really want to get it though we have already spent enough and I know they dont need it, but it would be really cute.
According to reviews on this, kids who got this for their 1 year birthday were able to ride it. Now, I think Leah need to WALK first before getting a riding toy, but I am hoping she will start walking some day :) But how cute is that? I just see them buzzing around outside and it kind of kills me that they could be that old! But I think we will wait on this for a while since we would need two...
We are going to see Santa on thurs. Pictures to come!
