Christmas is here!!!!!!!

Christmas is already in my home! We just need to put the outside lighting and we'll be done! lol... It's so fun!
I made some photos of the Christmas tree that's full with ornaments made by my sweet boy henry last year at pre-school. He made that much we have the tree almost full and we haven't put the ornaments he made this year yet! I think we're going to need another tree in the house! lol...

Look at this Santa he painted! This is one of the few he has already took home from school...



And these snowballs I amde them using the recipe from Bethany Actually at Etsy. They're incredibly easy to make and look gorgeous! I made some for the kid's frieds and also for the teachers at school.
And these little bags are somehting I invented for this year and I am soooo happy of it... I think it will be a Christmas tradition from now on. There's one for each kid and every night the spirit and magic of Christmas leaves there a candy for them so they get up every morning and go to see what they have... mostly chocolate coins and little bomboms! They love checking them every morning. Well, Celita likes ot check them every single minute, lol... This morning she went to the tree and got her chocolates and when she finished eating them she went again to the tree, took the bags and started running through all the house shouting and asking everyone to open it for her. Henrito told her they were empty because it was just one magic per day but she didn't mind, she kept runnin all the way and singing with the bags in her tiny sweet hands, lol... 
Look at her face and you'll understand what I'm talkign about, lol... And Henry trying to stop her with no luck!, lol...

Oh, I love this pic! Yesterday we started the day also with the Christmas theme and we were taking all the ornaments and decorations out and DH took also htis fun hat he once bought for himself at Disneyland. Celita loved it and wanted everyone to see her, lol... Again running  all the house with the hat on and shouting! lol...

Oh, and look at my "Handy Henry"We bought this box at Ikea long time ago and I was going to paint it but never find the time as I have to do it alone and alsways the kids are with me when we have spare time, lol... So we "made" it with no paint until I find the time and meanwhile it will store Henry's toys boxes. I don't know why everything comes in boxes... I made some bags to carry toys but there are things that have to be stored in their own box and we didn't have space enough for it. Now we have and Henry is so proud of his work!, lol...

We want to  finish today all the Christmas decorations but henry's a bit ill so we'll see what we can do. I'll show you whatever!

Perdoname que discrepe pero una cosa eran los vestidos megavaporosos de mangas afaroladas, lazo atras, bordado absurdo en la pechera, flores imposibles en la falda y baberos extra-large que usábamos nosotras de crías y otra cosa son los Burberry's baby, Armani, Donna Karan y Zac Posen que le ponen a la niña Suri... dudo que cuando sea mayor se lo eche en cara a Katie (la seguirán llamando Katie cuando tenga 40?)

Que niños más graciosos tienes, las fotos me recuerdan a las que me hacía mi madre cuando conseguía que el resultado de un baño durase!
