Stephen's been letting a beard grown. This is a picture of him after a 30 day growth. He has since trimmed it and gotten a hair cut so he isn't nearly has hairy! :)
Vance started begging to put the tree up the day after Thanksgiving and so we finally (in his eyes) got the tree up.
Vance admiring the tree. The first thing he does when he comes downstairs every morning is turn on the Christmas tree lights. He loves looking at it.
Vance had crazy hair day at school. I attempted to make his hair more crazy, but it is always kind of crazy, let's face it.
Our stockings were made by my mother-in-law and I think they are wonderful. My favorite one is probably Tanner's, but I do enjoy looking at all of them. The Merry Christmas below goes with the nativity advent calendar I do with the boys each day.
If you have ever been around Stephen much you have probably seen him folding these stars. We have quite a collection and since we have so many I thought they'd be fun garland for the tree so I strung some yesterday. Boy, my finger and thumb are sore. Maybe someday we will both be ambitious enough to do bright foil paper with it...
Here is our Christmas tree. It actually has candy canes on it now and will soon having gingerbread ornaments on it as well.
