Saturday we attended hubby's office Christmas party. It was down on the coast so it's about a two hour drive for us. My MIL offered to keep the boys overnight (yippee!) so that allowed us to make arrangements to spend the night somewhere.
Today was the day to get the Christmas decorating done. After school was done & J had his nap, we headed out. I ran a couple errands first. The reason we "headed out" is that all of our Christmas items are stored about a mile down the road in a relative's garage. We don't have the room here to store a lot of stuff including seasonal items. All the boys helped fill up the truck with all the boxes & then we came home. I then had to clean up some areas & pack away some things to make room. The finally result was well worth it.
Our nativity set
My Christmas village. My birthday is in the
beginning of December. The first year we were married,
my hubby bought me my first piece. Every year since
he has gotten me another one.
Got to love those cheesy grins!
I had to tell them to stop & smile.
They were too busy winding on the garland.
J just wanted to touch ALL the ornaments. :-)
Since B was old enough (maybe 2?) his "job" has
been to put the angel on top of the tree. He looks
forward to it each year. The angel is one that my MIL
crocheted & starched. We have matching ornaments too. You
can see one below the topper.
