I thought this was going to turn out so cute (what I need is a high speed camera)
Niels with our homemade decorations, I don't know what's harder getting Niels to look at the camera or....
...getting Gary to. Gary is taking Kail out to go play with his new baseball bat
These tree pictures are really for my parents. Gary picked up this tree a week before Christmas. Kail all month long kept telling us it was time to decorate, we told him Santa dropped it off, he was so excited. This is this nicest tree we've ever had. I almost hated to decorate it.
But we did with all natural candy canes from whole foods, paper snowflakes- it took a few tries to remember how to do it but I got pretty good after the 10th one if I do say so myself. I had intentions of making some globe type ornaments from some finger painted paper Kail did with homemade finger paints but never got around to making them. The faces of the kids is what Santa used instead of gift tags- He's a smart man & knows Lily can't read names yet. After we opened the presents Lily wanted to put them on the tree.
These are the big present that the three of them received from Santa- they are called Bilibo , everyone kept asking "what does it do?" well nothing- my explanation is; it's an imagination toy. You use your imagination to play with it. All I know is that my kids love it. Kail got orange, Lily- pink and Niels- mini blue & green. Plus they are just cool to look at.
We missed being with our families but next year! I hope you all had fun too!
