Matthew and I got the house decorated this afternoon. It was fun watching his 4 yr old excitement as we opened the boxes with decorations. The first thing he wanted to put up was the Nativity set. Each figure was, “Who’s this one, Mommy?” He had Joseph and one of the Wise Men talking to each other, “Where’s Baby Jesus? We don’t see him anywhere!” It was too cute.
We found a few lights for the tree and since we have generator power this year we will use them sparingly. We only have a little (4′) artificial tree but it looks nice in gold and red ornaments (pine cones, balls, beads, a few metal french horns, etc).
Only thing missing are the gifts under the tree. We’ve gotten a few from family in the states but they aren’t wrapped yet. I told Matthew that he just has to wait a bit.
I still have to find time to put together our Christmas letter. Maybe tonight. I was going to use a compliation of some of my blogs but that turned out to be 20 pages long! No one will be up to reading that. So, I have to whittle it down to 3 pages. Won’t be easy.
