We (finally) started our Christmas shopping yesterday, too. Jeff ran out and picked up a few things while I shopped online before Ruby got up. Christmas is underway at our house! Hooray! We got Ruby the Wonder Pet fly boat, my brother is getting her the school house, and we got a play set from Jeff's cousins Matt & Becky and their 2 sweet boys. We also ordered her a kitchen. It's so cool and has double ovens, washer, laundry basket, microwave, sink, clock, phone, pots, pans, and a storage cabinet. It also matches the kitchen which makes me happy since it will be the first thing you see when you walk in the house for the next few years. We are getting one from my cousin Angie (which is SO nice of them) but since we wanted this one originally, we decided we will keep the other one for Grandma's house. Ruby loves kitchen play so we are thrilled she can do this at my mom's house, too. Here's a picture of it:
Our kitchen is yellow with red and green accents and because I am just so particular and matchy, I'm going to paint (with non-toxic paint) all the blue parts the same shade red as the drawers. It's gonna look way cute and give her hours of fun! Can't wait to see her face!
Today we will put up the lights, garland, and maybe get a tree. It's gonna be sparkling plenty around here...and wait till we start the outside! Daddy's making big plans and quite frankly, I'm afraid. LOL!
