Decorating and Parties

Well....Joe and I finally got the tree up yesterday! Woo Hoo!!! I kind of wanted it up before Thanksgiving, but it's been a little busy for all of us lately. I still have a little more to do, but it can wait until this weekend.

Later that night, we had Kami and the kids over for dinner and then went to our Ward's Christmas party. I have a great love of children and it's always gratifying to see their happy faces as they sing Christmas songs and their anticipation to see Santa.

Carlee was pretty grouchy before we went over to the church, but once she got there, she was fine. As the play started, she was singing her Faa-la-la-la-laaa's a little early!!

This was our Ward version of the Grinch and these were some of the singing trees.

The A____ family and the S______ family did a great job singing!!

Little Cindy Lou Who and her sister too!! They were so adorable!!!

After the play, we sang songs really loud so that Santa could hear them and come visit!! Carlee thought it was a little too loud!!

Carlee wouldn't sit on Santa's lap but Collin had no problem!! It was so noisy that we couldn't hear a lot what Collin was telling Santa, but I kept hearing "I want____and I want a laser tag gun and a ______ and a rock and roll guitar and a _____ and an airplane and a _______"!!! Oh my gosh!!! It seems like it went on a little more than it should have!! You can see a short video of it on my daughter's blog here. Then Santa gave him a bag of candy. Collin was pretty happy with that!! Poor Carlee couldn't have a bag of candy because it contained peanuts! We did scrounge up a couple of oranges that hadn't been put in with the other stuff yet.

Oh...if you go to my daughter, Kami's blog, check out my grand kids first school Christmas program pictures!! It was pretty cute and so are they!!!!
