The night we decorated our tree, Noah was too tired to be a participant. =( So, after he went to bed... we put in "Frosty the Snowman" (Dolan and I used to watch "Miracle on 34th Street" but Savannah much prefers a film of the animated sort.) Maybe next year she'll be in to the classic we're so fond of!! On to our decorating...
Levi laid awake for a while watching the glimmer of lights and his sister running back and forth. It wasn't long though, and all the excitement put him in a sweet slumber. Savannah was not putting decorations on the tree, but rather lining them up on the kitchen table, the end table, and around the bottom of the tree. She had the most fun for about an hour carrying on in this way. When it was finally time for her to go to bed, we asked her to at least put one ornament on the tree. =)
It was a great night...just being together as a family doing something that brings joy to us all. More to come...check back tomorrow to see one way we are counting down the days until Christmas.
Until then, good night.
