Bring on the Christmas!

The Thanksgiving dishes are washed and packed away. The pumpkin pie is all gone. It's officially time to decorate for Christmas.

On Saturday, I went back on the roof to repair a fuse on a string of lights, then Bub and I strung lights over and around the bushes in the front. James pulled out the Christmas trees and bins of decor. The kids helped assemble and decorate the tree downstairs. (We'll be making ornaments for the tree upstairs.) We enjoyed unwrapping and talking about each of the ornaments, and this year, only one was broken (one of "hugging" giraffes that James' dad gave me for our very first Christmas).

We put garland on the mantle, put the snowmen in their places, and unpacked and dusted the Nativity sets. We went to Cheddar's for dinner, then to Wal-Mart and Hobby Lobby to look for light sculptures for the yard.

A tree? For me?

When can we hang the ornaments?

It's finally time!

Such a Great Helper!
