Its hard to believe that Christmas is exactly in 10 days. Where did the time go?
This was the first time I didn’t go out with the boys to get the Christmas tree. I wasn’t feeling very good on the weekend so I decided to stay in and to rest. My only request when they left was please NO Charlie Brown tree.
When they came back I was pleasantly surprised at what they picked out. This is by far the best tree that we have ever gotten to date. Michael picked out this tree.
Of course something always happens, nothing can ever run smoothly and so was the case for us. We bought two sets of net lights for the tree a few years ago. Everything was fine last year when we put them away. Then when we put the lights on the tree we had half the lights burned out on one set of the net lights. We quickly ran to a few stores to see about getting a new set and would you believe every store we went too there was nothing left? Thankfully I managed to dig into a few of our xmas bins and found some lights so now they are working.
The tree is now done and the shopping is complete and we all know that wouldn’t be easy because a certain someone made a list in September and things were bought off that list because they were popular items. Here he is doing the official letter.
Last weekend there was a family Christmas party (work) and we went and they always go all out for it. They rent out a local hockey arena (both rinks) and they have all these air bouncing things, face painting, games, popcorn and cotton candy. On the other side is a huge carasel, mini train rides, balloon artists, entertainment and Santa’s castle.
Inside the castle you get to meet and talk with Santa Claus and Mrs Claus.
Mrs Claus was so funny because if there was things kids weren’t sure about she handed them a bunch of photo copies of a flyer with toys on it.

I love Charlie Brown trees! Michael’s writing is so neat – it’s better than mine. The bit about not sitting on Santa’s lap because of H1N1 doesn’t really make sense to me, but what do I know?
Your tree looks beautiful Cindy and I am happy that Michael had such a good day.
Remember our little talk at the tea room, this might be his last year “believing” so take advantage of it!
Kathy-Michael’s teacher has told me that his penmenship is the best in the class. He loves to print and has discovered writting but was told he isn’t allowed to start writting yet. They have a way to teach them. As for not sitting on Santa’s knee I as well didn’t quite understand it put what can you do but repsect the sign.
Tina- Thank you so much. The tree is covered in ornaments that were all hand made. Yea I am sure this might be the last year for “believing”.
Your tree looks wonderful and I loved hearing about Michael and Santa.
Great post! I can’t beleieve Christmas is almost here!! I haven’t brought my Sophia to see Santa yet (shame!) I’ll probably head off this weekend. Your little boy is precious:) Unbelievable that kids can’t even get to sit on Santa anymore because of the HiNi (didn’t Santa get his shot?)
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year (hopefully we’ll get together in 2010:)
Cindy! I got your package today!!! I’ll send you an e-mail as well but thank you for the jam packed box of goodies for the Book Blogger Swap. I’ll be posting about it later this week. And now I have a new blog to come visit ;0)
sounds like you are all ready to enjoy Christmas. The tree looks lovely!
