On Saturday morning, we said a sad goodbye to Mom, Kristen, and Chris. We had a wonderful time together, but all good things must come to an end I suppose!! We were so glad they were able to make the trip this year!
We started pulling out our Christmas stuff later that afternoon...
I am STILL having such a dilemna about my stockings. I am in need of TWO more stockings. The four on the left all match. I have a fake one for Callie, and now need one for Caleb too. I have tried looking EVERYWHERE for stockings to match the other four. Anyone have any ideas? Seen any? I'll offer a BIG reward for anyone that can help steer me in the right direction! HELP!! I'm almost at the point to throw them all out and start over - we all have to MATCH!!!
The boys helped decorate the tree that night...and they had so much fun...remembering all the ornaments...looking at the ones they've made over the years with their pictures on it...what fun!
Josiah got to do the angel this year! :)
And the present wrapping begins! We're doing our "3" presents again this year (physical, emotional, spiritual), but are doing a CODE on the tags. (meaning no names on the tags - it will be a code). My parents did this every year for us, and we LOVED trying to crack the code every year! the kids are finally old enough this year to start this tradition! :) I'm almost done shopping too!! Yippee!
