Isaak in particular was super excited for the Christmas tree to go up! He wanted everyone to wear a holiday hat. Travis is like, "I don't want one!" - grump. Travis puts up the tree, and the lights, while the boys and I get out the decorations. I gave Isaak the task of getting all the ornaments out of the box. He was in Christmas heaven. Then I put up the ribbon and beads on the tree. Then the boys put on the ornaments. I help them because otherwise we'll have a bunch of green ornaments clumped in one spot, and so on.
Mica was excited to. My Mom's cousin that passed away about a month ago had some Christmas DVDs. We went through to pick some out. She had all of The Santa Claus movies. Mica's all about watching them.
I still rate The Christmas Story as my favorite Christmas flick. In fact one of my Christmas card ideas was to make Mica look like Ralphie and Isaak look like Ralphie's friend "Schwartz", and re-enact the tongue stuck to the pole. Only their tongues wouldn't be actually stuck. It would have been way easier than the card I did. A lot less Photoshop and Illustrator work. Maybe next year.
What is your favorite Christmas movie?
That would be a cute card, especially if you love that movie. We never really got into it that much. For us we just watch the different ones on tv.
Love Actually is one of mine... I've been thinking of other Christmas movies to watch this season too for our movie nights at home. Will add Santa Clause to the list :) When do you usually take your tree down?

My kids have Kindles too and they love them. I have way too many favorite Christmas movies. I like The Christmas Story, Charlie Brown Christmas, The Grinch, A Christmas Carol, The Polar Express...there are too many good ones. I love this time of year!
Ai we take our tree down on, or right after January 1st
It's A Wonderful Life is my all-time favorite movie. My daughter loved to read and build with Legos. When she was in about fifth grade, I also got her a couple of books called, I think, Math Tricks and Tips. She was always into math and has become a mathematician.
Definitely A Christmas Story, but Elf is a very close second!
" A Christmas Miracle." It's a true story about the Battle of the Bulge, when a German woman living in the area had both German and American soldiers staying in her little house on Christmas day as they tried to get out of the bitter cold. The troops agreed not to fight while they were in her house.
A Christmas Story is my favorite movie, but I also love watching all the old cartoons like Rudolph and Frosty.
I have been taping a lot of the Christmas movies I haven't seen
