It's begining to look a lot like Christmas. . .

The tree is up at the Kobie Home. We went to the tree farm again this year and cut down the perfect 'little' tree for our house. Here are Jer and the girls checking out the tree that Mommy likes.
Lucy is supervising while Jer makes the cut.
Lucy was so excited to get a candy cane to eat on the way home. It was actually a good way to keep her awake until we got home, so she would nap in her own bed.
We brought the tree in while she was sleeping and she helped me decorate later that night. I got new ornaments at IKEA this year. It was a great way to have a cute, Scandinavian tree on the cheap. All of the ornaments were under $1, so if any of them broke while going on, it was no big deal. I bought some that were wood and paper and let Lucy do most of those.
Here is our finished product. What a beauty! It was up just in time to put the St. Nick stockings underneath for the next morning.
Here is Lucy on Sunday morning with her stocking.
Here is Ellen with a new Jack-in-the-box that was left in a load of St. Nick gifts from Gram.

This picture is a perfect glimpse of the girls right now. Ellen is stuffing something in her mouth and Lucy is stealing Ellen's new gift.
The girls got ornaments from Gram this year also. Ellen wasn't ready to have hers on the tree yet.

Both girls with their ornaments.
Merry Christmas to all. . .

  1. Hey Beck, Those pics were great. It was the next best thing to being there. I really enjoyed them. Some of the could be your Christmas card. Loved the new header too. I am glad the girls enjoyed St. Nick. Pretty tree. Please tell Lucy Jane she did a great job decorating.
