It's the same every year. We have to drag EVERYTHING out of the closet under the stairs, unpack the boxes and start the 3-day decorating process. Our downstairs is full of little trails. Mazey loves it and thinks she has her own personal agility course. Our daughter came over to drop Emily off, and she said it looked like Christmas threw up in our house!
Emily's favorite part of decorating is setting up the Christmas houses. But before she could begin, she had to move my cookbook collection out of the pie safe from the kitchen to the spare room. (I heard her muttering about Grammy's obsession with cookbooks.) Mazey was a huge help in the entire process.....NOT!
A couple of hours later, Emily is putting some of the finishing touches on the Christmas scene.
Flashback to 2009 when Emily was only 7. She had to stand on a step ladder to decorate.
In 2010, she still needed a ladder.
Emily's twin sister Kinsey decided to break tradition and go shopping with her Mom and friends this year. The girls are growing up so fast and I know they are going to have other interests. For now, I will treasure every precious moment I have with both of them.
