Tonight we put our Christmas tree up. It's our family tradition to have the entire family do it together.
Brian usually puts the lights up, the kids put up the ornaments, I rearrange the ornaments behind their back (tee hee) and then the next son in line gets to put the Angel on top of the tree.
Last year was Kazz's last year to put the angel on the tree as a child. The next time he gets to do it he'll be 21 years old. We counted the twins together last year so we thought he would be 20 when his turn came around again but the twins no longer do it together like they did when they were 2 years old. So, with Kole doing it this year and Daxx doing it next year, we have to add a year. Daxx will do it when he's 5, Vinze when he's 10, Brise when he's 14 and Kazz when he's 21...But I digress... *sigh*
This year the kids had fun decorating the tree. When we turned on the lights and topped the tree Daxx and Kole ran around the house turning off all the lights in the house. That was a hoot! Then, in the dark, I took a picture of all my boys. Even Brian smiled with his sore back. Yes, he threw his back out just before picking up Kole to top the tree. (moving the newspaper basket) That didn't matter though! Oh No! My wonderful, loving husband HAD to pick his son up, just like every year, to put the topper on the tree. He's a wonderful, wonderful, father...Always, always here for his family, us... But I digress...again...*big, happy, sigh*
Tonight was fun...A little crazy, but fun. I'm a very blessed woman. Thank you, Lord Jesus for the blessings you bestow on us.
