Decorating for Christmas

Its that time again! Christmas is fast approaching. We are all hoping this Christmas will be better then last Christmas! Spending the holidays in a hospital is never fun.

We always decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. That way we get a whole month of Christmas fun.

The boys look forward to setting up the Christmas tree every year.

Billy Jr picking out Christmas ornaments. 

This is what excitement looks like!

And a little sibling drama...Owen complaining that Brayden is taking too many ornaments.

The boys trimming the tree.

Alex is getting SO tall! He helped Billy Jr put the star on the tree this year.

I caught Alex being silly with the ornaments...I think he was pretending it was a grenade. Boys...

See even big boys get excited about Christmas.

Gabe, who's wearing an ornament around his neck as a necklace, is loving decorating the tree.

Brayden being silly. I have an exact same picture of him wearing ornaments on his ears from two Christmas' ago, but I can't find it.

And of course, the little boys didn't quite understand. They thought Santa was coming THAT night. So the next morning Billy Jr woke up, ran to the tree, looked around it, under it, and behind it. Then he went crying to daddy that Santa didn't come. When daddy told him that it wasn't until another month that Santa would come, he cried harder saying, "That will take forever!".
