Christmas Spirit

We've got Spirit
Yes, We Do!
(well, we're working on it)
How 'Bout You?!

Our House
(minus some lights)

Our House
(with a few more lights)

This year Matt agreed to buy a REAL tree to put in the basement.
(Our artificial tree is on the main floor as usual.)
I'm hosting a couple of Christmas parties which will be held in the basement and we REALLY needed a REAL tree.
Thanks Honey!

 decorating the REAL tree with ornaments

making a paper chain

it's getting longer


I was so impressed with the tree and the children's decorative ability right up until Lauren approached me with an old ornament.

"1988" was written in Sharpie on the back.
Lauren said, "Momma, was this you with your hair pulled back or was it one of your brothers?"
 Seriously, Little Girl?!!!

Not all of us can look as innocent and beautiful as sweet little Lauren.

I'm loving Christmas Time and I hope you are too.
