Christmas 2009

Yes, I am just now blogging about Christmas. I am going to try to get back up to date with all of our activities! We stay so busy that at times I forget to even pull out my camera because I am just taking in whatever is going on and trying to really enjoy it. After it is over and I have no pictures to show for it I am sad. So I am going to try to be better about pulling out the camera and at least capturing something. Anyway, this is our own personal family Christmas that we celebrate on the day the boys get out of school for Winter Break. This year for some reason it didn't work out to open gifts on that Friday night so we didn't make the boys wait. We opened gifts on Thursday night instead. All 3 boys were thrilled with what they recieved and were very thankful!
On Friday night we sat down to watch one of the boys new movies and about halfway through the movie our Christmas tree fell to the ground making a huge mess and breaking one precious ornament. Had we waited and opened gifts on Friday night it would have ruined everything! We spent the rest of the evening getting the mess all cleaned up and tryed to get our lovely tree back up. It however would NOT go back up and we didn't trust it at all so 13 days after putting our christmas tree up it was hauled to the back porch. It was a really beautiful tree and we were happy to have it for the time that we did. A new tree stand is top on the priority list for this next Christmas and we might not go quite so big this next time!
