The Tree is Up

We are usually traveling at Christmas but since we were in the States for a month in August, we decided to stay home this year. Our first Christmas as a married couple was spent living in Egypt. One of the best things to buy in Egypt is glass Christmas ornaments. So we bought a ton and most of our ornaments are glass. With little ones this doesn't work out too well. I still put a few on the tree for sparkle, but try to use less fragile ornaments near the bottom for the kids. They still managed to break an ornament yesterday but it is still usable.

Curt made hot cocoa and Eva loved it. "My coke! More coke!"




They had fun decorating. I rearranged some of the ornaments because they clustered them.

Ian have extra Christmas stockings and the kids put them all on and danced around to the music.

Kids decorating, and decorated! How sweet! We put up our tree yesterday, and I was happy to see our glass ornaments again. We didn't have them last year because our HHE hadn't arrived. I love the photo of your cocoa drinkers. Funny that our kids both like chocolate, but not cocoa. ah well.. more for us.
