on the first day of Christmas...

We decorated for Christmas.
We put lights on our house.
Each kid gets their own tree to decorate with their own ornaments. They get to buy a new ornament each year and then they can also put the ornaments that make at school on their tree. Terek keeps pulling everyone's trees over trying to get the ornaments off.
The boys were really nice to share their ornaments with each other. Joren gave his Elmo ornament to Terek. Brenner gave his Cars ornament to Joren and Joren gave his Hulk ornament to Brenner.
A black and white living room is not complete without a black and white tree. This picture does not do it justice!!!
Merry Christmas. We are excited for our Christmas countdown. We loaded up the advent calendar today with our daily activities and candy, of course. Joren helped me put the candy in. We had rolos and kisses. First he said, "mom, I need to try one of each." Then he said, "mom, I had to eat this one because it was open." After me telling him again and again to stop eating them, he said, "I have to eat this one because I can't remember what it tastes like." He was full of all of the excuses tonight!!!

Terek is going to make for an interesting Christmas if he keeps that up all month. So, does Joren not smile for pictures anymore? Gotta love him!!!
