It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
Chess, putting the star up.
Decorating and un-decorating the tree is favorite activity.
Doing whatever they can to reach as many ornaments as possible.
Chess puts toys in the tree, too. Here, she has stuffed in two packs of diapers.
All dressed-up for church.
Our annual town tree-lighting was rainy and cold this year, but we stuck it out anyway.
Lera was all bundled up.
The train is always a hit.
I am so excited for Christmas this year! I have been talking to the girls about Jesus being born and why we celebrate Christmas. I bought the Fisher Price nativity to play with and Chess will make Mary ride the donkey and put Jesus in the stable. It's very cute. She also knows that Santa will come. When I ask her what she wants for Christmas, she says, "presents." That's easy! But her favorite thing may be eating a gingerbread man cookie every day as we count down to Christmas. I got the idea from this post (at the very bottom). More Christmas posts to come!
