Oh Christmas Tree!

We put up our Christmas tree last week. That's right...before Thanksgiving. Drake and Kera absolutely loved it. So much so that they keep taking ornaments off just to put them back on, and they try to plug in the Christmas tree by themselves if it is off!!! :/. We may have to put the gate back up! It just isn't safe! We'll see. I would like to put their presents out there, but I know that they would start opening them right away. So they will just have to take up space in our room. Lots of it too.

Drake and Kera really enjoy school. However, Dane and I have came to the conclusion to just save the $200/month until they are 3, and get them into some activities. We made a school/craft room out of their old nursery. It is definitely my favorite room in the house. I am going to home school Drake and Kera until they enter Kindergarten, which I know seems far away... but really it's not!! I can't believe they'll be 3 soon!

Yesterday, the kids and I went to hobby lobby to pick up some tissue paper, card stock and some glittery pom poms to make Christmas trees. They LOVE glue sticks!! I have to start researching Lesson plans for Drake and Kera, because I want to kick homeschooling off in January. Which also requires Dane to mow the back yard for outside play time!




About Me

My name is Melissa Schilling. I am married to my wonderful husband Dane who I have been with for 10 years. We have toddler twin babies Drake and Kera. I started this blog in hopes to one day be a photographer. As for right now my husband and I are using photography as a hobby we can do together. We are starting the 365 day project August 1, 2009. I can't wait to start to learn more and more about my camera. I look forward to any feedback. I will be mostly focusing on people subjects, because that is what I am interested in. However there may be a few other types of photography in the mix.

Thanks for looking at my photo blog, please follow me if you are interested in seeing all of my work, and where this takes me in the future.
