As soon as we walked into the store and over to the North Pole area, the girls were in awe. We all kinda were actually. Everything was so pretty. There were tons of decorations everywhere and they even had blue lights all over the ceiling to make it feel like we were at the North Pole (well sorta). As cool as all the lighting was, it made things a bit tricky for taking pictures.

I'm so glad we ended up taking her this year after all. She had so much fun. I am glad we had another option other then the mall as well.
Amy, Jeremy and Q came by my house right before we left to see Santa. We had been trying for a couple of weeks to get a decent family photo of us for our Christmas card and we weren't having any luck. So I set up the camera on the tripod and asked her to snap a few shots for us. She kept telling us that our feet were getting cut off... we thought she meant from the sides so we kept bringing our legs in closer. Really she meant from the bottom, and I guess she didn't realize all she had to do was tilt the camera down. We were in a huge hurry, so we just needed to get through it. Anyway, we ended up with a decent one, but Joe's positioning is super awkward. I also wish we had been more infront of the tree with less of my desk in the background.
I know I am being way too picky and no one gives a crap but me.
We took the pic Wednesday night. I needed the Christmas cards done and printed on Thursday so I could stuff the envelopes and address them all Thursday night, then mail them out today. I tried ordering them from an online place that I could pick them up in an hour, but I didn't like any of the templates. I wanted to crop off Joe's leg and the desk somehow in the background but leave the tree.... so I ended up having to design something for that, even though I had absolutely zero time to do it. I am not inlove with it, but under the circumstances, I am at peace with it. I printed them off at my work and they went in the mail today. Finally done with that... Yay!!
And the real ones do not say "the Munchkin", by the way.
This weekend, I hope to wrap all of the presents and finish up any last minute shopping. I still have so much to do. I have to make cookies, figure out what dishes I am making for Christmas Eve at my uncle's and Christmas day at my parents and then get all of the supplies for that, plus all of the other things I don't want to bore you with. I can't believe christmas is only 9 days away! So excited!!
Does anyone else get so silly about their Christmas cards or am I just a wierdo?
