The apple doesn't fall far from....

Have you ever had that moment in your life when you realize you ARE your MOTHER? It can be terrifying or exhilerating.

For example, my Mom goes crazy with decorations at Christmas. The bathrooms are even full of seasonal cheer.

Nick has always made fun of my copious amounts of Christmas decorations. Well, we put all of our decorations in our spacious townhouse and realized we didn't have as many as we once thought. So, this definetely called for a trip to Michaels. Thirty dollars later and a basket full of stuff I hummed merrily home (listening to Christmas music of course!).

This morning I was happily stringing garland and poinsettias all over when it hit me. I am my Mother. I wasn't quite sure how to react. I realized it was a good thing. My Mom is one of the most creative, organized and fun people I know. She always has a smile on her face and makes everyone around her laugh.

Thanks Mom. Your influence is very prevalent in our home this time of year! It is "Christmasized."

Give your Mom a hug or a call today.

Family Pictures

So, it is Christmas card season and I thought I'd let Costco do the work for me! So we had a friend take our pictures (Thanks Leigh!). She got some great pictures.

Aren't we cute!
