Snoopy Tree

We put up a second Christmas tree today...this Snoopy-themed tree.

It's in our kitchen, on an antique red and white ceramic-topped table (that belonged to my Dad's mother) next to our kitchen table.

It's pleasant to see a Christmas tree while eating our meals each day...and the Snoopy ornaments even match our red and white apple-themed kitchen!

Christmas Tree Decorations

Apparently, T decided this afternoon that our Christmas tree needed a few additional decorations!  I walked into the family room and discovered he had put three of his DVDs on the tree.  :D

Santa Claus

We went to the mall this afternoon so T could sit on Santa's lap!

T told Santa that he would like to receive a [Yo Gabba Gabba] Boom Box for Christmas.  :)

Christmas Program

In December every year, our chapel has a Sunday School Christmas Program.  The children wear costumes and learn songs and their speaking parts for the performance.

This morning, the children put on their costumes and photos were taken for a slide show which will go along with the performance.

     As the wise men continued on their long journey to find the king, they came to Jerusalem, where they stopped to ask King Herod where they could find the young king.  Herod called together his chief priests and teachers of the law and asked them where Christ was to be born.
     "In Bethlehem of Judea," they told him.  Explaining the ancient prophecy, the priests reminded Herod that long ago it was written:
     But you Bethlehem, in the land of Judea, are by no means least among the rulers of Judea; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.
           ~from The Christmas Story by Carol Heyer

The Christmas Program will be held on a Sunday evening later this month.  I'm sure I will have additional photos to share afterward!  :)
