Countdown. . .
~ My Willow Tree nativity~
I love Willow Tree creations! Someday I hope to have the entire manger scene collection.
~ The boys and their countdown charts~
At bedtime, the boys get pretty excited to turn on the trees in their room, and it is time to knock another day off the countdown charts. They take turns making an "X" on one chart and cutting a link off the other. I also tried to snap this picture in a way that you could see the angel at the top. When attaching their manger scene to the door, Seth really wanted it up there.
I hope the weekend has started as a pleasant one for you and your kin! We are ready for Christmas (Troy still has to wrap his gifts to me.) and are planning on painting today. Any help? :-) Ugh! I do not like painting. (I am sure you have never heard me say that!) I am determined to have this done by the 31st!
Sunday will be busy with church, practicing music, and dinner with John and Cathy Parker. On Monday, we will have our Christmas together, and if the boys have any choice in the matter. . .it will be early!!! Ethan is so excited, and he told me I "just can't imagine!" Around noon, we will be heading to Steve and Angie Oliver's house for some dinner with fun and games to follow! I am looking forward to a blessed Christmas, and my prayer is that you will have one as well.
Merry Christmas!

We can hardly wait to see how you wrapped your presents and what is in each one. (sarcasm)

Dear Anon 3, would it surprise you that the wrapping paper had to be colors that matched my tree? :-) We will have so much fun tomorrow ~ matching colors or not!
Ahh. . .now I am off to cuddle in bed with my family as we watch a movie. . .
