We got our tree last Monday and got it set up. The kids helped decorate a lot of the tree this year. The pictures don’t do it justice. I think it is hard to get a good picture of a Christmas tree.
While we were at the Christmas tree farm (aka Lowe’s) Luke decides to walk over to a pole that had just been painted and stick his hands on it. His hands were completely yellow and he got some paint on his brand new jacket! I was sick, but I managed to most of the paint out of the jacket.
I asked him to show me his hands for the picture, but he kept showing himself.
As we were walking to the car he said, “I touch wet paint. I not do that again!”
The boys made a gingerbread house this weekend. That’s a first for us. They really got into the decorating. I put some frosting on the house for them and they went to town decorating it all by themselves. They were quite proud.
Luke keeps saying “I not fit in door. I get stuck.” I guess he thought it was going to be a real house and not a little one.
Our Christmas Pageant at church was this past Sunday. The kids did a great job. D3 was a wise man (or wise guy, if you ask me ;)).
Luke thought about dressing up, but decided to go to the nursery instead. Probably a wise choice. J
And one last picture for my mom:
You were right. The candy reindeer nose very high on the Christmas tree still got eaten by the candy monster. It didn’t even last a week!
