Getting ready for Christmas

This year Amado and I felt a little bit more festive than usual. Stockings are hung on top of the fireplace also known as our TV. I just have to fill them with something. Windows are trimmed with garlands but it's still missing something. I might add more ornaments to it this week. We both agreed to include ourselves in our Holiday cards this year. Kudos to USPS for next day delivery! This is the first time you'll hear me praise USPS publicly.


We tried to be a little funky with our Holiday cards. I hope people get that we were going for the Awkward Family Portrait theme. Amado's expression in our photo is priceless. He had the "too happy while gazing off camera" look pinned down while Kami (wearing reindeer antlers) was clearly not having it.

Made our very first gingerbread house. Trader Joes have some really cool and easy to put together kits. I kinda wish we bought 2 because we finished decorating the one we bought so quick. 




We also got a Christmas tree, well kinda. We have Ikea to thank for our glow-in-the-dark Christmas tree curtain. I didn't realize it was glow-in-the-dark until I was shutting down everything before going to bed. They were sold out at the store closest to us and online so Amado insisted that we drive all the way to Costa Mesa that same day or else he wouldn't have been able to sleep.
