It's begining to look a lot like.......

Today we put up all our Christmas decorations. It sure looks different around here with the glow of the lights from the tree and all the other decorations that fill up the rest of the house. It is our tradition to put on the Christmas music and to decorate together as a family. This year Naomi was very eager to "help" with everything that she could get her hands on. I think we are going to have a hard time keeping her away from all the interesting all the things that she is not allowed to touch.

Naomi got a special ornament last year, a little toy duck that says "Baby's First Christmas" on it. It was important to me that she have one. When I was growing up my brother and I each had a special ornament that we received on our first Christmas and we picked the perfect place for it on the tree each year. I am excited to carry on this tradition with Naomi. Here is a picture of her placing it on the tree this year.

"To laugh often and much, to win
the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false
friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch... to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This
is to have succeeded!" - Emerson
