The boys worked really hard to decorate our Christmas tree (thanks to Orchard Supply and Hardware).  Our tree was complete with ornaments (both handmade and store-bought) and lights!


Welcome to our family our newest addition!  We brought him home tonight, but are still trying to come up with a name for him.  Any suggestions?

    It’s a lovely tree! I don’t have any suggestions for names, sorry 🙁 It was a battle to name our son! We had plenty of girl names picked out, but the boy ones…we found them difficult to like!

  8. Our kids love doing this too! They totally look forward to it and I let them go at it 🙂

  9. We still don’t have a tree! It’s the latest we’ve waited and it’s killing me!
