So, here we are decorating the tree. Arik is the photographer and the ornament passer-outer. Andrew is an old pro at decorating the tree. Aiden on the other hand, had his own plan. If there was an ornament that he took a liking too, he would put it on the tree then take it right back off and RUN as if his life depended on it! It was a very funny sight.
So, the tree was put up and the presents (already wrapped and waiting) had a home. I also put up a Christmas tree at my grandfather's house. The past few years, we have congregated over there on Christmas Eve and awaited Santa's arrival. Pa-paw really enjoys having a full house for a night. He gets to watch his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren open their gifts and bask in the joy and love radiating from our very beings.
