Saturday was our school's Christmas Fair. I enjoyed helping, as did my three older girls. Here is Miss Middler posing with Santa and his elves.
Our tradition is to set up our tree and decorate the house the weekend after Thanksgiving. We usually need to get it set up quickly, as we host the staff Christmas party soon after that. There were no complaints; it's one of the kids' favorite things to do. I pulled out the tree skirt and did the yearly hand prints. Sniff. It's actually the last one, I think.
He didn't mind getting his hand painted green nearly so much as he minded getting his baby foot painted baby blue when he was just 3 months old.
I'll keep this forever, even when his hands are bigger than mine. What traditions do you have to prepare for Christmas?
