Trimming the tree

This year getting the tree up was a bit of a process.  Daddy and Lilly went and picked out the tree while the rest of us worked on crafting Christmas presents.  Then the rest of the evening was spent trying to get the awkwardly shaped (and as a result, super unbalanced) tree to stand upright.  We tried a bundle of things and ended up with a combination of bungee cords and rope tied to a door knob.  We always do things the most conventional ways around here, ya know.  It's for the safety of our babies.

Lilly and Owen helped me decorate the tree once everything was fast and secure.  (Everett took a nap. Gibby and Daddy did some outside work.)  





So, if you are in our home this Christmas season, you will have the pleasure of seeing our ugly tree made beautiful--just as we are all because of God's Greatest Gift.

A trip to the fire station

We took the kids to see our fire station on Monday for a mini field trip.  They got a personal tour of the fire truck.  Lilly was super extroverted and talkative to the fireman.  Gibby was completely unsure and wanted held the whole time. And Owen was in the middle of the spectrum.

Everett's new thing

Everett has been clapping like crazy this week.  He is so darn cute.

P.S. Gibson helped me get Everett dressed in his camo pants this morning. As of 2:00, Gibby has informed me probably 100 times, at least, that Everett wants to go deer hunting. Ha!

Splish Splash, Everett's takin a bath

Up until about a month ago, Everett despised his baths.  Screamed and cried bloody murder through every single one.  But for some reason, he's had a change of heart.  Thank goodness.  He LOVES to splash splash splash. And splash some more.  No more tears. Yay!  Lilly joined in the fun tonight.
