One of the problems of moving house so close to Christmas is that the usual preparations get somewhat pushed aside. Actually that could be a blessing! Anyway, after much nagging from two small boys we managed to put the Christmas tree up much to their delight. This year Joel did most of the decorating as Eli lacked the finesse to put the baubles and bits on the tree so threw a strop and wandered off into the garden. Bless him.
Joel loves the tradition of decorating the tree and is beginning to understand the real meaning of Christmas. We had a bit of a chat about Santa and the real St. Nicholas and why he loved & served God.
Eli is really excited about his birthday tomorrow although Joel is probably even more excited about it! They've been planning where we should go for a family dinner and then came up with a plan to go out for a family breakfast. Stay tuned to find out where we end up and at what time of day we get there!
Eli loves our Zimbo Nativity scene
