Merry Christmas from our family!

We had a wonderful family Christmas.  Jake was on call Christmas day and thankfully it was for the most part quiet.  It was great having a day with the family.  Love having time together.  It was a relaxing day with fun, food, and activities.  Thankful for a season where we can celebrate such a great event as Jesus coming to earth as a baby in a manger.

OH, YES WE DID!!! We put streamers, balloons, and a trap on the girls bedroom doors on Christmas Eve.  Four confetti poppers to be exact attached to their bedroom doors.  We had 3 poppers above their heads and 1 trip wire popper.  When they opened their doors that Christmas morning they exploded!

Matching Tiger outfits!

P1340047c

The funny part is Jake and I got matching Tiger outfits too!  Let’s just say we have a picture with all four of us dressed up as Tigers, but Jake made me promise not to share it on the blog.  Seeing him in a full size Tiger outfit had us three girls literally rolling on the floor with laughter.  Seeing him walk around with his Tiger outfit, hood, ears, tail, etc… was hilarious!

Easley Baptist Hospital Festival of Trees

Around the world….loved the globe on top of the tree!

Every year during Christmas Season the girls and I try to swing by our local Easley Baptist Hospital to look at the Festival of Trees.  They have the main hall packed with a variety of trees.  The trees are sponsored by local businesses and people in the Easley community.  Some of the trees are decorated by the same businesses while others are decorated by somebody else.  It is a neat way to get in the Holiday spirit, see some beautiful trees, and have a fun adventure with your kids.  The amount of trees is not too massive so it is easy get through the whole section in 20 to 40 minutes.   The girls look forward to it every year.

The “I Promise….” Tree, neat concept.  You could write on a card something you promise to do in 2015 and hang it up on the tree.
