Each year when we pull out the bins with Christmas decorations, the boys find the burlap that goes around the tree and wrap each other like mummies.
After all their fun, Blake hung around to actually help me decorate the tree.
Ready or not for December, we got two important things checked off the list. We set up the tree and wrapped the children’s Christmas books so the boys could open one each day.
Sometimes I wish we could skip all of the rest of the December hubbub; shopping, programs, parties and additional decorations, and simply enjoy the glow of the tree lights and gathering around them each night to read our favorite stories. That is my favorite part of December.
