5 Months Later...
You know the what they say.
It's the Most Wonderful time of the year.
And since it was the kids first Christmas, I wanted it to be perfect!
And that's why we were full on Christmas.
"The last of the decorations are up!" Wally called from the living room.
We had decorated in the inside and outside of this house from top to bottom.
Diana and Aaron were watching Christmas specials on the couch.
They looked so adorable in the Santa hats that Wally bought them.
I looked around the living room everything was perfect.
We had our fire place covered with wreaths and the fire was burning bringing that orange glow, we each had a stocking with our names on it.
Me, Wally, the kids and our parents.
Becky had gone home for the Holidays.
Our regular throw pillows were replaced by reindeer and Santa Claus themed pillows.
We has snowman blankets on the couch and the coffee table had little Christmas nick nacks like small statue snowmen, snowflakes, a cup of candy canes and Christmas coasters.
And around the room hung snowflakes, snowmen and Christmas wreathes big and small.
And in the corner next the fire place was the big Christmas tree.
Covered head to toe in Christmas ornaments and candy canes and of course at the very top was a bright gold star.
"And here are the cookies!" I said placing them on the coffee table.
I hadn't made them Iris did and I was just there to take them out.
Aaron took a cookie while Diana continued to watch TV.
"Artemis I need to talk to you" Wally said.
I nodded and we walked into the hallway.
"What's up?" I asked.
"It's about our Christmas presents" he started.
"What about them? It's okay if you haven't bought me a gift yet. I haven't either today I'm going shopping with the girls and we are gonna buy the gifts" I said.
"Right, but make a promise. Don't spend to much on the gift" he said.
I rolled my eyes.
We were rich so it didn't matter.
"And promise me not to buy me something cheap, unless it's really special" I said.
He gave me a lopsided smile and nodded.
"Good" I said before kissing him on the lips.
"Cameron are you done with your wishlist?" I asked walking into the living room.
"I am mommy! Look!" he said happily.
I smiled at all the scribbles.
Yes scribbles, kindergartners don't have the best hand writing.
"Awesome! Today we are gonna go Christmas shopping!" I said.
"What is this about shopping I hear?" Dick asked entering the room.
"It's just the girls, unless you really want to come" I said.
"Yea! Free Christmas samples!" Dick said.
I rolled my eyes.
The boys loved Christmas.
I loved Christmas and this was Alexis' first one but I knew she was going to love it.
She was already in love with Santa Claus from all the Christmas specials on TV.
And she was in love with candy canes so maybe that was a sign.
"Alright Alex let's go get ready to go shopping!" I said.
I took her off the couch and she slowly followed me to her room.
"Mommy, mommy!" Cathy yelled.
"Mommy's business!" I replied.
I was feeding Isabella.
Cathy walked into the kitchen pouting.
"Yes Cathy?" I asked.
"I need a red dress" she demanded.
"And why do you need it?" I asked.
"We're having a show! And I'm Mrss Claus!" she said happily.
Isabella giggled at Cathy's bubbliness.
"Alright we'll buy it when we go Christmas shopping" I said.
Cathy jumped up and down excitedly.
Conner walked into the kitchen and Cathy ran to him.
"Daddy can you help me ready for shopping?" she asked.
"Well of course! Come on!" he said.
Conner picked her up and she giggled happily.
I turned back to Isabella.
"Soon you'll be just as excited for Christmas!" I said with a chuckle.
"Are you sure your not gonna be cold?" I asked Diana.
Even though this was California it could get cold at times.
And Diana wanted to wear a skirt, I said no at first but she wouldn't stop begging.
It was a cute black skirt and I insisted she wear tights but all of them were dirty.
"Yes mommy" she said.
I zipped up her red leather jacket and patted her sides.
"There all ready!" I said.
"The girls are done" I said.
"And the boys are slow pokes" I said.
Just then the boys walked into the living room.
"Slow poke!" Diana yelled.
"So you guys are ready?" I asked.
Aaron was wearing a red stripped shirt with black jeans and red Vans.
"Zip up Aaron's Northface Wally!" I said.
"Mom, Iris we're going out shopping! Be back in a few hours!" I yelled grabbing the keys off the table.
I opened the door.
"Artemis" Wally said.
"What?" I asked.
"I'm driving" he stated.
"Right, your driving" I said and I tossed him the keys.
"Open the trunk" I said.
I placed the double stroller into the trunk.
Even though they could walk, they couldn't walk for a very long time.
"Alright into your car seats" I said.
I picked up Aaron and placed him into his car seat while on the other side Wally did the same for Diana.
I looked over at Zatanna's driveway to see them getting into their car as well.
They honked at us.
I climbed into the passengers seat.
"Let's go" I said.
"Seat belt babe" Wally said.
"Right" I said.
I put on my seat belt.
"Now, let's go" I said.
"Alright into your booster you go Cameron!" I said.
Cameron climbed into his booster seat while I buckled in Alex.
I handed Alex her bottle of juice and walked over to the passengers seat.
I buckled my seat belt before turning around to see if everyone was alright.
"Cameron zip up your jacket" I said.
Cameron was wearing a white polo, jeans and Jordan 4's.
Alex was wearing a purple and white polka dotted romper, grey Ugg boots and a black sweater.
"Can I watch Wow, Wow, Wubbzy?" he asked.
I pulled down the DVD player and played the DVD.
A smile appeared on Cameron's face.
"Look there is Wally and Artemis" Dick said.
I honked the horn.
"Alright let's go!" I said.
I finished putting Cathy's hair into a bun.
I had already done Isabella's hair.
"All right I'm all done" I said.
I placed Cathy on the floor.
"Which jacket do you want to wear Cathy?" I asked.
"This one!" Cathy said pointing to a blue Northface jacket.
"Awesome!" I said.
It matched her outfit.
She was wearing a stripped white and blue shirt, light denim jeans and blue Jordan flights and blue earrings.
Isabella was wearing a orange sweater, khaki pants and denim Toms.
She didn't need a jacket because she had on a thick sweater.
"Conner you ready?" I called from Cathy's room.
"I don't know what to wear" he said walking into the room.
Conner was shirtless and only in boxer.
I threw a blanket at him.
"There are kids in here!" I exclaimed.
"Cathy take your sister downstairs and watch some TV while I get daddy ready" I said.
"Okay mommy!" Cathy said before taking hold of Isabella's hand and walking out of her room.
Conner and I walked into our room.
"Why would you do that? The girls don't need to see anything before they are ready to" I said.
"No worries, I was decent" He said wrapping his arms around me.
"Yeah I guess..." I said.
He kissed me and I kissed back.
"Just don't ever do that again" I said.
He smiled but nodded anyways.
Alright so you're probably wondering why I'm putting a Christmas chapter in May, well I obviously couldn't wait till December my story would be long done by then and I was planning on doing a Christ chapter. Anyways if there are any Holiday chapters that are no were near then it's probably for the same reason. Please review!
