CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN


I can't believe that 2 weeks from tonight is Christmas Eve. The time flies by so fast.

Yesterday we had one of those wonderful family days. Totally unplanned. We spent the afternoon putting up Christmas decorations. Mr. Waddler and Bino decided to go get a real tree. They were looking for one 6-7 feet tall. They came home with one 11 feet tall. We do have 12 foot ceilings but I felt like there was a Griswold Tree in my living room. Do you remember the part when it opened up and blew out the windows? Then the squirrel came out?

We all put the ornaments on the tree. We each have special ones from each year. The was alot of reminiscing being done. Sometimes the unplanned times are the best.

Waddling and waiting for Santa.....................
Sunday : 800 m swim & 1 hour spin
Monday : 30 min. treadmill

Do I remember that part?! That movie is Christmas tradition in my household. My brother and I will spend hours reciting lines back and forth.

that sounds so nice.

we always used to have a real tree, then one year out tree fell over about 3 times and I declared NO MORE REAL TREES!

But maybe next year...or at least I might think of getting a new artificial tree. Ours looks kinda cheesy...
