We had a GREAT weekend!  Jared was out golfing all day on Saturday so the boys and I spent some time together.  We saw a play (Christmas in Oz) on Sat morning and then came home to decorate our Christmas tree!


They love going through and finding their favorite ornaments from previous years.  They even had to make sure the dogs saw their ornaments.


My favorite find from last year (at Cost Plus World Market) and the boys seeing what the tree looked like from underneath.

Somehow Christmas tree decorating turned into lip syncing complete with vacuum cleaner microphone.

We were attempting to take a photo in front of the tree

Which turned into an impromptu dance lesson from the baby (he had already danced with me earlier) because the Christmas music playing in the background was just making him feel like he needed to groove.

During the silliness the baby caught a glimpse of something he feared

It was the wasp thing that came in with the Christmas tree.  It sure did make him stop in his tracks. There is no longer a wasp in the house – all we are left with is this reminder of the fear we felt when we first saw him.
