As the kids get older their participation wanes in certain events. It took a great deal of cajoling to get David to participate in this years tree trimming tradidition. After all he's nearly a teen. We are always so greatful when he does participate because he's funny and enjoyable. Joely was the most excited. It's true, Christmas is for the children.
However all the kids got into it and sang along with all the fun. Two days later everyone went with the cub scouts to carol at a nursing home. That helped us to remember the real reason for the season, which is good will towards men and do as the Savior taught us, which is to "Love one Another"
Take a picture of me!!!
Joely was so happy to do the tree!
Here is Alice doing the snoopy dance. The radio was playing "Linus and Lucy"
Can't you just picture Snoopy dancing with his little nose in the air?
Here is David, Not participating.
If you can't beat em, join em. David decides to have fun.
Joely was chosen unanimously to put the star on the top of the tree.
