Christmas in full swing

Christmas is one week away and I can hardly stand it. It's so fun to experience Christmas with kids. I'm so excited for Santa to come because Joseph is so excited for Santa to come. And it's so wonderful to be able to teach Joseph about "baby Jesus." Joseph summarizes, "Baby Jesus growed and growed until he was big and he helped people." Here are some of our Christmas tree pictures. This is the first year we've had a big tree. We've always just put up the little 2 foot tree that my mom sent me one year I was in college. I don't really have enough decorations to fill it up but I was surprised to realize how many decorations we have been given through the years that we've never used because they were too big for our little tree. It is an artificial tree and most of you will think I'm horrible to live in Seattle and not buy a beautiful live tree. But we got an amazing deal on a used tree that I just couldn't pass up. It just looks so beautiful in our family room. I will be so sad to take it down.


I just love the pictures of babies grabbing at Christmas trees with the lights lighting up their faces. I didn't realize how dark my pictures were. I'll try to get some better ones for you.

Your tree looks awesome! And those pictures are adorable, especially the one of Justin at the Christmas tree. You guys need to get out here to Utah again so that I can squeeze his little cheeks, he's gotten so big!

Hey Jill, it was great to catch up on your blog. These are some cute pictures of your boys by your nice big tree. Your ER story made me laugh but I am very glad that everything turned out okay. And that was a cute video clip and picture of Justin's first experience with rice cereal.
I hope you had a great Christmas! Katie and I did miss you!!

so adorable! Your tree is beautiful and it's okay that you got a fake one:) It looks real!
It was such a joy to have you here and share in your Christmas with the boys. I've been thinking of my favorite thing and it's hard but I think watching Kellen and Joseph at the movie is probably it.

You coming to Vegas would be a dream come true! Make it happen.
