After church a friend of Buddy's invited him over for the day, so we ran home and got his clothes changed and then I took him over there. Back at home, I decided to take advantage of the Man being home and one Buddy being gone, and one Babe taking a nap and got out the tubs of decorations for the tree. After all its been up for two days now, looking lonely.
I laid out all the ornaments. It always amazes M.E. how many I have and I know exactly, who, what, when and where each one came from.
This picture reminds M.E. of the boys, I Spy, books. Can you find the Teddy Bear? that would be a cool project to do. Make my own I Spy book - like I need another project.
LG would help M.E.
I let the boys put on their own personal ornaments. Buddy has quite the collection. He had made it back home by the time it was his turn. And I recently read a blog post at AliEdwards.com about a fabric ornament box her grandmother made her for all her ornaments growing up. I definitely will have to do this.
One of my favorite parts of the season is our Advent Wreath. The boys love it and its so simple and a good reminder of the Reason for the Season.
I've still got to decorate the mantle and the Man needs to put up our lights, so more decorating to come.
