The Children Were Nestled All Snug In Their Beds

Oh wait, that’s not at my house – my kids are running around screaming! Anyway, thought you might like a peek a a new holiday tradition in the Mika house. The boys wanted to do a small tree upstairs and it just so happens its perfect for our new HPD ornaments. The back says Christmas 2011 and their names. I want to use the same image I used for their birthday party invitations each year so we can remember the theme as well as the image we used on our Christmas cards.

You may remember Jackson’s Firetruck Party of at they very least Fireman Curtis!

Apparently “pose” means act goofy to my kids! We need to add the tree skirt.


dear santa

My kids mailed their letters to Santa in September. Proactive and organized. I know exactly where they get those traits from! I must admit I feel a little competitive with Santa each year. I accept that he is suppose to give the big over the top gifts but I am jealous. I do all the work and he gets all the credit. Am I the only one?

I am really trying this year to get ahead of the game an order early. The kitchen set I wanted for Jackson from Pottery Barn Kids is already back orderd. Not getting what I want makes me CRAZY. I know better than to wait. I love some of the new Lego offerings, including this adorable VW Camper Van. Let me know what’s on the top of your list to Santa this year. I am looking for some good ideas!
