Getting ready for Christmas!

We made the ever famous "Christmas Countdown Chain" on December 1st.
The boys had a blast making each loop for the chain and helping put it together.

I started doing a reward chart for each month (starting in Nov. with a turkey) and for nice, out of the ordinary things the boys do they get an ornament for the tree. Benjamin LOVES this and each day he asks if he gets an ornament. I think sometimes it makes him think before he acts.
Here is the Christmas Chain all put together.

The boys had a blast helping me put the tree together.

Gracie had a great time sleeping while we decorated the tree.

Thanks to my grandma, who gave me an ornament each year, and to Taun's mom who gives us all ornaments each year, we have plenty of ornaments for our humble little tree. The boys loved putting all of them on the tree.

My mother gave me these chair covers one year and so I let Benjamin choose which one he wanted to put on his chair and as you can see it made him so happy.

Alex loves his snowman chair cover.
This year preparing for Christmas has been so fun because my boys are so excited for it.
