I'm sure some of you are waaaaay ahead of me, (and a few of you are thinking It's still November, for cryin' out loud...), but I'm just getting started on Christmas preparations.
And believe it or not, the boys are asking when I'll get the decorations up.
(An aside... Patience is something the boys can only store in minute quantities and apparently do not want to waste by using. Ever. Moving on...)
Tired of me dragging my feet and being distracted by trivial things like schooling, grocery shopping, and laundry, they disappeared into the family room, and presented me with this:
... a Lego nativity (their second? or third?)
Here you see the wise men bringing their generous gifts.
There are shepherds with sheep and an assortment of animals - horses, mice, even a pig and a frog.
No fire ants this year.
The baby Jesus was no preemie...
And an angel protectively watches over all.
