We got our Christmas Tree today. A beautiful fragrant Balsam. The best smelling tree of the bunch.
What we didn't realize, however, was that the scent of balsam must be very close to the sent of catnip. The kittens immediately began climbing the tree. We haven't dared put any lights or ornaments on the thing. Hopefully the novelty will wear off...but just to be safe, the kids spent the afternoon making homemade paper, completely unbreakable ornaments.
This is the week of holiday concerts and pageants. Son D's preschool has a concert on Wednesday night and Daughter D. is in the church pageant next Sunday. Much rehearsing took place today.
My favorite? Son D's rendition on "Angels we have Heard on High." He finishes each verse with:
And I am overcome with an urge for a chocolate cookie. With a creamy filling.
