…and when we decorate tree #1!
Paul was scheduled to leave town on Friday so after our extended family had gone, we pulled out our tree and started decorating.
This is our family room tree…it’s covered in ornaments that have been given or made by the children. This year, we added some of my Mama’s ornaments. There were tears and there was laughter.
Paul and I gave each of the children an ornament that represented their year…Jacob got a grill, Courtney and Joshua Starbucks ornaments, a crab for the vacation Paul and I had taken, many of the children got dinosaurs since a big highlight of our year was the visit to Creation Museum.
….the day was nice, but Jackson made it extra-special. He’s finally decided to walk. That boy, at 15 months, he’s been in no hurry, at all!
We had the best time and with so many helping hands, it didn’t take long to finish the tree. We gave the children one more gift…a movie night in a box.
Marshmallows, hot cocoa, a treat, and a copy of Frosty the Snowman made for the most perfect family night!
