(BT-Dubya: It's not working quite as well as I'd hoped)
We decorated the tree up one afternoon Blake was post-call so he could be a part of all the madness.
He and Carter manned the man chair, Avery and I decorated the tree, and Will broke various decorations, nativity pieces, etc.
|Avery took this one...this is his typical reaction to his siblings|
|Getting our decorate on! What a horrible picture of myself..Grumble, grumble|
|Cookies and Milk at HH...my sweet boy|
|Avery and Mrs.Claus.|
I think ever year it gets more fun. Having little kids does make Christmastime so magical! When R and I were little our dad would shake jingle bell necklaces (you know the one, you know you had one and wore it ALL. THE. TIME. I did) to make us think the reindeer were flying away. AND we got to leave the tree on all night long. Little memories- the best ones. Ahhh! I can't wait. I hope my kids remember all the silly little things.
I'll leave you with a day early throwback (TBT, right?).
The picture from our first (maybe second) Christmas card. Amanda keeps this one on her fridge and I love it!
Now, bring on the oreo truffles, macaroons, and fruit cake!
