We put up our Christmas tree yesterday. Actually it was Elmer who brought it out from the garage then the children started to help out and ended up building it row by row from bottom to top.
I was cooking at the kitchen the whole time and they asked me not to peek until they were done. I got tired after cooking and it didn’t help that the weather was too conducive for afternoon naps. So I fell asleep while waiting.
When I woke up, I saw this.
We’ve been practicing Christmas carols. Sasha sings like an angel. But Pio and Nina got their Mom’s, of all things, fantastic tone-deaf singing voice.
We are all counting the days until Christ’s big day. Best day of the year!
