Decorating Papa's tree

When we arrived at Papa's house, we discovered that he hadn't put up his tree. The kids were excited to decorate the tree for him. John dragged the tree up from the basement and the kids took out all the old ornaments to hang.

They had so much fun! And it was a great service to Papa. He really wanted the tree to be perfect because he had a big surprise for the kids later in the day!

The kids each had a favorite ornament to put up.

Katie loved the crystal ones that Grandma added to her collection just before she died.

Emma-Rose loved the angel.

Sam loved the bear.

Daddy put the angel up.

I took pictures...even a self portrait or two. (Look into the ornament.)

While we were decorating Katie serenaded us with some Christmas music...The Chipmunk Song, of course!

We hung our stockings by the chimney with care.

But most of all we just enjoyed being together as a family.
