The Christmafication of the Fairytale Household

There once were two children who dreamed of Santa and candy canes and reindeer .

They helped their parents to Christmafy their house.

Their joy was contagious as they put up snowmen, Santas and garland

the only snowman these south Texas kids are likely to see

Princess topped off the tree with the family angel

Which meant Monkey had to do some Christmafying too.

Once the tree was completed they cuddled together and shared memories and took stock of their blessings

The only thing left to do?

Go visit Santa.

Princess was thrilled and overly tired and Monkey…

Well, he wasn’t too sure about this bearded stranger.

  5. Monkey has got some extremely interesting poses during his portion of the christmafying, and your hubby is super strong to be able to hold him while he’s all contorted like that. LOL

    The Santa pic is adorable (we’re supposed to see Santa this Wednesday, I’ll be interested to see how that ones goes over with Connor)

    LOVE your tree. You guys did a nice job

  7. Ya know, that tree looks really familiar but I am REALLY glad I ain’t putting it up! It looks great and I want to see Dad lift the kids like that when they are 10 years older ;-}


  8. I think I’m a bad mommy. I’m one of the few Christian moms who won’t put up with the lines and screaming kids in order to see Santa. Oh yeah, and shell out 10 bucks for a so-so picture. Can you really take your own?

    Those photos are great!

  9. I didn’t know you could make Christmas an adjective or is it adverb? Hell, I don’t even know what I’m talking about.

    Your decorations are splendid! Thanks for the reminder, that I have almost none up and still have to visit Santa!

  11. What a beautiful new layout you have!!

    And I loved your PSF. Isn’t decorating the house so much fun with the kids? I am sure that half of our stuff will be broken before it makes it to the tree, but fun non the less!

    Thanks for visiting my PSF, and I totally look forward to meeting you at BlogHer!!

  12. Your tree is gorgeous, but my fave shot is of the monkey Christmafying… too cute! He’s got great rocket form LOL!

    I LOVE the new look! And noticed you’re going to BlogHer, hopefully I’ll be there too and can’t wait to meet you!
