On Monday night, July 25th, the O’Shields family celebrated Christmas in July. Some one say that it was a way that I could indulge in my habitual shopping hobby, but I like to think of it as fun, memorable way to express my love to my family!
So, with that in mind, I climbed into the attic and brought down a tabletop tree,
set out a few decorations on the kitchen counter,
and lit a Christmas candle to stimulate the senses and add a little ambiance.
After dinner we each opened one present. Mackaylan received a pair of Hello Kitty texting devices (I told you she was like her mama!)
Mickey got the first season of Friday Night Lights on DVD.
And with her big sisters’s help, Lydia “opened” up a fun bedtime toy.
Lydia was feeling a little under the weather this week, but seems to be getting better. She has had a runny nose and a cough since we have returned from the beach. However a humidifier, saline drops, and lots of TLC seem to be doing the trick!
As you can see, we all enjoyed this fun, memorable night together. We are already looking forward to next year!
