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.
