I'm married to Mr. Christmas. David's birthday is on the 27th and he's always felt a fondness for sharing his birthday with this holiday. He loves to decorate, watch Christmas movies, make cookies and generally listen to Christmas music every chance he can. He always sings during the Christmas Eve service at church - which is one of my favorite moments of the season.
The past few Christmases have been a little hectic for us because of the twins being so little, but this year has been a lot different. They are finally leaving the tree alone (sort of) and they are noticing little bits of Christmas here and there as we drive through town, go shopping, watch Christmas movies, etc. The girls are enjoying the fact that none of their ornaments have been broken this year!
We decorated the tree on Sunday evening and I thought I'd share a couple of pictures of what it looks like to decorate the tree in our house.
Next Friday I plan to share one of our traditions with you - it's one of my favorite things, no matter what time of year it is.
|Daddy took a break and demonstrated juggling|
(these are plastic ball ornaments!)
|My oldest holding the beads|
|He's trying to juggle like Daddy - he always sticks|
his tongue out when he's concentrating
|She had high hopes to juggle six at a time!|
|Helping Daddy string lights (notice Dave's pajama|
bottoms are Christmas lights...)
|Sad that he couldn't do it by himself|
|My oldest wanted to take a picture of me|
|Our oldest hanging the first ornament|
What about you? Have you decorated a tree this year?
