Gina, the boys and I started getting the house ready for Christmas this week. I started by putting up our tree, then Gina and the boys have been decorating a little at a time all week. We are leaving town again in a couple of weeks, so we aren't going all out with the decorating, but we wanted to make it look like Christmas at our house at least a little bit. The boys haven't quite caught on to the decorating thing, but they do like seeing Christmas lights on the houses in our neighborhood. Nate got the Christmas season kicked off right by doing his best Rudolph impersonation with ketchup, then Sam did an interpretation of "... settled in for a long winter's nap ..." at the end of lunch.
