I'm laughing as I type this post. Saturday we headed to Guntersville to help my Mom decorate the tree. Mom and I attempted to take Tripp's Christmas card picture....Tripp was sitting on this antique red sled by my Mom's tree when he started to fall off. This picture is of me yelling "get him" while my Mom reaches for him. My camera went flying and Tripp unfortunately landed on his little head. Needless to say, this was the last picture. Out of about 50 pictures, I think I found one good one. Tripp is usually happy most of the time, but of course on the day I want to take pictures, he just stared at me and would not smile. Oh well!

This is my favorite part about our tree. It's obviously our tree topper. Dave and I have used this cross with the crown of thorns for our tree topper since our first Christmas together. It's a beautiful reminder of the reason our Savior was born.
It's so nice to shut the doors to our T.V. and just enjoy the fire in the fireplace and our Christmas tree.
Tripp loved the lights on the tree...which I'm sure contain lead paint!!! So much for enjoying that moment!
And Tripp filling up on some more lead paint.....don't freak Mom I stopped after this one!
One of my favorite traditions growing up was decorating our tree as a family! My mom gave us a new ornament every year with our name on it. When Cord and I got married, she packed up our ornaments so we would have something to put on our tree with our spouses. We still go home to help decorate my Mom's tree. My Dad is missed so much during this time. He loved decorating the tree and he always put the angel on top. Although I still love this tradition, it's just not the same without Dad.
