Christmas decorating

After Thanksgiving was over, we decided to get into the holiday spirit and get our decorations up. I forgot how much work it all is - thank goodness we still had Madgie and Patch here to help! Ben was so excited to start decorating!

Putting the ornaments up...

Abbey got into it too (although lately all she wants to do is take things off the tree - not cute!)

Here is everyone doing their part!

Juliette was in the spirit too as she looks forward to her first Christmas...

And now we get down to the real reason Ben was so excited to decorate...the trains!! We told him we had to decorate the tree first before we could set up the train and I have never seen him so focused on getting something done! He has been playing with them non-stop.

Thanks Madgie and Patch for coming up. We had a great time with you and really appreciated you watching the kids and letting us sneak out for a nice dinner by ourselves (something very rare for us). We love and miss you already!
