The kids and Joe put up and decorated the Christmas tree last Sunday after church while I ran out to pick up a few things at the store. I couldn't believe it when I got back. Joe and Samuel had actually put the tree up while Nikki and I were at church and then while I was out picking up a few things for lunch they decorated it! Chris (a friend of ours) even helped with the decorations. All that was left for me to do was clean up the mess!!
One of my FAVORITE things to do is turn down all the lights in the evening, sit on the sofa with a cup of hot cocoa and 'watch' the Christmas tree lights....some good Christmas music just makes it all the better!!
