oh christmas tree, oh christmas tree:

everything in my life is running on a delayed schedule,
our mcphee family motto is "better late than never"
so keeping true to our family slogan,
our christmas tree went up wednesday night & was decorated thursday morning.
{& the only reason it was sucessfully decorated
is because my mom & sister
adorned our tree with white lights...
always my least favorite part}

at least it was before christmas eve, right?

my favorite ornament this year came from my mom.
it's actually my little tiny's ornament.
she is loving the tree this year.
which is a good & bad thing.
something is bound to get broken...

i love christmas trees.
the first year we were married we had a real tree
i absoluetly loved it.

on a side note,
our christmas cards will most likely be in the mail after christmas...
so please send me your christmas cards
i live for good mail days!
& kayl's birth announcement may or may not be included.
would that be tacky to get a christmas card & birth announcement in one?
you tell me.

thou tree most fair & lovely.

all i want for christmas is:

well, november came & went faster than i was able to post anything.
i have several posts ready, but no photos to go along with them.
& to be honest,
what is a post without a photo?

my nameless baby boy,
who has been named,
arrived on the 19th of november as expected.
Kayl Ray

so much has changed with the arrival of kayl.
he completes our little mcphee family.

this month, i promise myself to keep my blog updated.
mainly for journaling purposes.
but also because i like sharing
just how cute my kids are.

my great granny used to say,
"every mama crow thinks her babies are the blackest"

yes, i would be that crow.

{baby kayl's very first real bath at one week old with gram}

{ignore this face, he really does love the tub}

i love christmas time.
december is going to be the most wonderful time of the year.
maybe our tree will go up this weekend...
only time will tell.
