Getting Ready for Winter....and Christmas!!!!

Okay I'm getting really excited about Christmas! I am sooooo ready to start putting up the Christmas tree and I should also note that I may have or have not started to listen to Christmas music....
I bought the girls new Christmas pjs and have let them wear them and we have also placed a few new Christmas movies to our collection. I just cant help myself. Christmas comes and goes so fast and in those 25 days its just not enough time to start to enjoy the season! I put on Christmas music, lite my Cinnamon and Clove Candle from Bath and Body Works the other day and danced  raced around the house cleaning, it was a glorious day!!! The house smelled like the holidays.  I love when my house is really clean, I was able to deep clean, awesome!  Then we raked leaves, people when I say leaves you really have no idea! Here is a pic however we were about 3/4 of the way done I forgot to get a pic of the yard before we started. The girls had a ball because Bruce made a HUGE pile and they would swing off the tire swing and jump into the leaves crackin up!

As you can see we have to burn them, we have 3 acres and were only able to do the back yard. It can be fun because we are doing it all together, well we missed Logan, boy did we miss Logan!!! The weather held up and we felt good that we were able to get it done. We were getting so tired we had to talk each other into finishing it. I told Bruce don't you here the Rocky song in your head? He said No I hear a Lala bye, funny man! Anyway we did good! Then went and rewarded ourselves with going out to eat! Now we need to do the front yard...uhg! 

It was a good weekend, the winds were so bad yesterday though, we started talking about what would we do if a tornado came. Crazy! I remember growing up and never fearing a Tornado in November, just shows you how much our earth is changing! Went to church and the girls wanted to bring there friends!

They look just like them! The girls have been trying to think of how they could earn more money (instead of doing more chores), this is what they came up with! 

The picture is sideways sorry, but they drew pictures and have placed price tags on them! Yes very creative children don't you think???  Needless to say they each earned a buck! We are suckers!

Anyway I am ready for Christmas and am going to go listen to more Christmas music!!!! 
Happy Monday!
