Holiday Recap

Here is the condensed Holiday recap.
We cut our first ever real, live tree.  This was a pretty big deal since I think I had daily second thoughts on this leading right up to the moment we pulled into the tree farm.  I was picturing us completely forgetting to water the thing and us having a Charlie Brown tree by the big morning.  It was fine and we did remember. 
The girls waited patiently.

Cuddlebug wanted her picture taken with the BIG horses.

While Lovebird was more than happy to look at them from a distance. we went thinking that someone would help us tie it to the roof.  I guess we completely forgot that we live in the great Midwest where men are expected to know how to tie a tree to their roof.   Prince Charming did a fabulous job but there was much talking and laughing about what we would do if it flew off on the way home.

We had our windows painted as always.
We celebrated Hanukkah and made chocolate dreidels one of the nights.
We decorated......

...and decorated...
...and decorated...
...and decorated...
...and decorated some more.
We made cookies.
We sang.
We had a great Christmas Eve.
We were super ahead of the game and didn't have to wrap a single gift the night before!

It was a great and glorious Holiday season celebrating our Savior's birth!!!
