Tree Lighting

We surprised Daddy on Thursday night by putting up the Christmas tree. After dinner we decorated it.


Matthew enjoyed himself immensely. He kept saying “I’m working really hard!”


He was, too. He was pretty serious about the whole thing.I think David just enjoyed having something new to grab and walk around with.

Even Max participated, in a cat sort of way.


This is one of my favorite holiday activities. I love getting out ornaments I have collected over the years. I got a lot when I was teaching (and I do mean, a LOT). It’s fun to think about the kids who gave them to me, the neighbors who gave us ornaments when the boys were born, and the ones my mom made when I was little.

Plus, a colorful Christmas tree is so beautiful in the dark, cold winter.



December 6, 2008. family, holidays.
