#MicroblogMondays: holiday snippets

Thursday we went out for our annual watching or the parade  The weather was amazing and we were able to take off our coats. I was becoming concerned that we weren’t going to get family pics this fall but Rob came to the rescue and after the parade ended got some. He set the camera on a rock with the timer and we sat on a neighboring rock. We got a couple of good ones where we all look reasonably happy – not easy considering the kids were at the end of their happy time. 

I was able to order our Christmas cards on Black Friday (even found 15%off code) and they arrive tomorrow. So despite the lateness of planning and picture taking it all came together.

We got a tree. It’s a little Charlie Brownie and not the fluffiest the tree we’ve ever had but I love it. Simon helped hang the ornaments and pull out the decorations. I also took an hour on Sunday to finally make Caleb’s stocking. So tree, stockings, nativity, and other decor is up and the apartment feels festive.

Also, Caleb is sick, again. So despite the warm weather winter is here.
