I wasn't planning on it, but Bonnie wanted to go Black Friday shopping, so at 4 am we got up and headed off for Wenatchee.  We got everything on our list and had a lot of fun. I even treated her to breakfast at Denny's.  We were home by 9:30 am and greeted by the boys who were eager to start Christmas decorating.

They didn't give me much of break but immediately started pulling out all of the boxes and decorations.  While they set up the nativity scene, I got busy putting up the tree and fluffing it up.

I had to finally buy some new lights for the tree. About nine years ago, I bought a box of Christmas lights at a yard sale for a dollar.  A pretty good deal I must say since I am just now buying some new ones.  I should have bought more but what I have will do for now. 
 Brian thought the container that held the new ornaments in would make a great hat.  Gotta love that boy!
 The boys had a lot of fun helping me out, unfortunately, they didn't stick around to help clean up.

 "You gonna stand there and take pictures or stay and help us decorate?"
The finished product.  I really like our tree this year. Of course, it could use some more lights.

  1. Looks wonderful. We just put up our tree Sunday, first time without the kids. Seems strange.
