Funky Christmas and a funky new year, I swear...we got ourselves a party here

So last night Em, Qiana, and I got our holiday decorating on. We put on my christmas mix, and got the trees up. Qiana was a good girl, dressed in her holiday onesie (okay not really, but she was super comfortable so that's all that matters right?) and watched.

I was fortunate enough to be able to keep my mom's tree that she was so proud of, and em and I put it up where she always liked it. Man that thing was a beast to put together, and I'm not sure how my mom with her bum knees and all did it, but I just think it's the prettiest tree around.







Apparently Em and I had a "who could take the worst picture of the other under the tree" contest? Not quite sure, but i think we both lost this one.


I am now officially a grown up I think, because my household now has one classy tree and one "kid" tree filled with my precious ornaments from my grandma, and now Qiana's first christmas ornament.

This next picture is blurry but i had to post it, cause Qiana is smiling so so cute.

I know I should have waited until the traditional christmas eve, but she's too young to know about tradition yet.

I did continue with the Bates family dance party though. How can you not move to mariah's "all I want for christmas is you"?
