Dwayne is becoming quite the spirit of Christmas on SWD! Like last year, we found the perfect, too-tall tree right away, but since it wasn’t pouring (just freezing) Dwayne had us tromp around the frost-kissed farm to make sure there was nothing more perfect-er. And he was going for towering, not just tall.
We got settled on this, the one I championed from the first.
The kids wandered the fields warmed by the hot chocolate they got to have when we arrived at the farm.
Before Wesley warmed himself up by the fire with a s’more, he worked hard on writing his letter to Santa. Grandma, he really, really wants Power Ranger stuff. Ross (and probably a lot of other stores) had a Power Ranger weapon that he has to have, and Santa did not include in his bag.
Piper made sure she got Santa’s attention as well.
Clearly, Piper waited until after her s’more to communicate to Santa.
Our tree was too easy to be netted, but Santa’s helpers got it on the roof anyway.
This year, I got the lights up (it took two separate ladders), and then I left for Black Friday sales while the kids took charge of the decorating. Though “took charge” may be overstating it in Wesley’s case.
Aw, my fam.
Tada, the final product. Our house smells so good!
