I have not posted in a while, but we are all well- just busier than usual. I love Christmastime and all of the decorations, music, lights, and the yummy baked treats that come with Christmas. The boys are very excited about Christmas! We have had such a great time getting ready for the holidays. Brandon's Grandparents (Vic and Velma Bruski) made him and his sister an advent tree when they were young and we began using it last year for the boys. They enjoy counting down the days til Christmas and getting a little surprise too. As we were finishing dinner last night Koen said " There's a reason to celebrate. It's Jesus's birthday!" I thought that was so sweet. He has really been into the Christmas story and Baby Jesus. He thinks it's so neat that Jesus was a baby. We went to our church's Christmas programs over the weekend and the boys were mesmerized. Baby Jesus was a real baby and they both really thought that was so neat! We are currently iced in- nothing compared to last year's ice storm, but the roads are slick and school is closed. I am going to post some pics of our family getting the Christmas tree decorations up and also some pics of last years ice storm- just to remind myself that it could be worse! Next time I will write about our CRAZY experience putting up Christmas lights!
Gannon was really concentrating on getting the tree just right!
FLUFFING THE BRANCHES ON THE TREE
One year ago....the ice storm was a mess but there was beauty in it- this leaf on our bush looked so pretty!
