Christmas comes a little early...

During family songs, the kids both wanted to sit by Henry...so they dragged their seats over to where he was sleeping and settled in. To distract the kids from mauling their baby brother (he is a kid magnet, I guess), we had to procure and decorate a Christmas tree. It's a fun distraction--a lure that is impossible for the older kids to resist!
Our neighbors also passed along a nice little gift for our kiddos--a used but large football toybox. The kids like it. They like it a lot. They think it is a kidbox.

Ha ha! How fun! I love that they both had to be in the toy box together.

So cute, I'm glad you were able to distract the kids with the tree. I'm glad your feeling so much better and your recovery is going well, now you just need to talk me through the next 2 1/2 months!

So cute. I can't believe how long Sheridan's hair is! So cute. By the way, is Henry a red head too?

Can I have a turn in the football box too?

How did they both fit in there? It looks like they are trying to climb out of one of those clown canrs that holds 20 clowns and no one knows where they came from.

I love Henry's going home outfit! Sounds like your Christmas tree decorating went well, and I hope it survives:). And about me not losing my temper on the Christmas tree incident, stopping to take a picture was the only thing I could think of so I wouldn't absolutely lose it!

It is great to hear that Henry is mild. You deserve it on a third kid I think. If I have a third, I really hope for mild one!
