It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Well, it finally really feels like Christmas because we finally put up our tree and decorations!! All of December I have known that Christmas is coming up and it has gotten colder and it kind of felt like Christmas but it didn't really because whenever we were home there were no decorations, tree and nothing that reminded me of Christmas. On Saturday we finally got out our few decorations that we have and went to Home Depot to get a Christmas tree and set them all up and now it finally really feels like Christmas!! I am so excited and cannot believe that Christmas is right around the corner!!

I turned on some Christmas music and Nena was dancing and dancing to it but in this picture you can't tell she's dancing at all.

The finished product!! It looks really good in real life. In the picture you can't even see the lights. They are so fun, they are the kind that blinks on and off and does patterns!! I love real Christmas trees because they make the whole house smell so good all the time. The thing I don't like is that they are so messy and there are always needles everywhere. The smell makes the mess all worth it though!!! We weren't sure how Nena was going to be with the tree and at first she kept taking the ornaments off and so we put a little hand vaccuum in front of the tree because she is kind of afraid of vaccuums and so far that has done a pretty good job at keeping her from getting too close to the tree.

Well Nena needs to do some more practicing, because she's going to be a big sister!! That's right, we have another one on the way! I am 11 weeks along and am due on June 27th!! This new baby will be born just a couple of weeks before Nena's 2nd birthday! We are so excited to become parents again and Nena is so excited to have a little brother or sister!! We have taught her to say baby and we have also taught her to point to my belly when we ask where the baby is but most of the time when we ask her she just pulls up her shirt and points to her own belly button. It's cute!
