Today we set up our Christmas Tree. Its a little earlier than we normally do it but I thought since we had my family down we would do it now. We bought a fake tree a few years ago so Chad was setting that up while I got out all of our ornaments. Nicholas put the star on with the help of Chad. Everyone helped put on the ornaments. It was a fun night and the tree looked great. Since then the tree has been abused. All of the ornaments have been put up really high so the kids don't touch them. Thankfully Chad attached it to the wall because I'm sure it would have been knocked over atleast half a dozen times by now. To put it mildly, the boys are very excited for Christmas:)

Hanging ornaments almost as fast as Jake pulling them off.
Chad and I have been together for over 10 years and married for 8. We have 2 boys. Nicholas is 6 and in 1st grade. He LOVES Star Wars especially Darth Vader. Jacob is 4 and is in preschool. He loves anything his big brother loves. He is very funny. Chad just started a new job as an Engineer working in the semi-conductor (nano technology) industry. He is also in the Army reserve. I am a stay at home mom and I love being home with my boys. They bring me such great joy.
