The Christmas season is quickly approaching. The last few years all the hoopla has felt more like a chore than a blessing, but this year I'm actually looking forward to all the trappings of the holidays. It started when I heard that Silver Oak's Christmas Party included kids this year. I loved buying dress up clothes for the kids. The boys are both young enough that I could buy whatever I wanted and dress them up like little dolls. I'm so excited to show off Cooper in his pin-stripped vest and tie, and Henry in his sweater vest and newsboy cap. Emma Jo is very happy to get to wear her father-daughter dress again and Grace likes any dress.
On Thanksgiving morning we dressed the kids up in their new outfits to try to capture a picture for our Christmas cards.
Before the party this weekend, I'm hoping to do a little shopping. I'm also hoping to string Christmas lights around the yard this weekend and begin to decorate the house. Next weekend, after Jason's 40th birthday, we'll be getting our tree and fully "Christmasfy" the house.
