about a dream: Our tree is up!

Our tree is up!

It's officially Christmas at the Halter house!

The girls had so much fun putting the tinsel on. We had Christmas carols playing on the computer, we were hanging ornaments and throwing the tinsel on, and Maggie gleefully exclaimed, "Let's party Christmas-style!"

Too cute. They are officially too cute. I wish I could say that they're in their pajamas because this picture was taken first thing in the morning, but no. It rained all day today and we had a laze about the house day.

We bought the tree on Saturday at a lot in Baden. It's about 6 1/2 feet tall, but the last foot and a half has no branches at all. You can't see in the photo (because I cut the top of the tree off), but there's a star with tinsel hanging from it at the top. We call it our shooting star tree-topper.

Nina's been home for the last 2 days. On Monday she had a sore throat, runny nose, and slight temperature all day. This morning she seemed better, but said her throat was still sore. We told her she had to go, she could take a lozenge with her, but then she started crying and we relented. She did have her fever all day and was still at 99.1 at bedtime, so I wasn't sure if it was just the morning blahs or if she still felt under the weather. She stayed in bed a while again, but she's been totally fine since lunch, so she'll go back tomorrow.

That's all here! Just excited for Christmas!
