It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

We put up our Christmas tree this morning.  The boys were super excited about all of the goings-on.  Once we got the tree put together and the garland and star on, it was time for some ornamenting. 

The boys kept looking in the ornament box and Caleb kept making this ooohh sound.  It was really funny.  He kept saying, “I do it.”  But he couldn’t quite get the hangers to stay on the limbs.  He really was just basically setting the ornaments on the limbs.  But he was doing a pretty good job. 

Micah wanted to wear his Duke from GI Joe costume while we were decorating.  As usual, the ornaments are all pretty close together since the boys seem to have favorite limbs to hang almost every ornament on.  But they did their best, and the tree looks pretty good even though most of the ornaments are situated in the same general area.

Here are some pics:

What happens when the clippers die midway through a buzz cut…

Micah was getting a little shaggy.  I had a craft fair on Saturday, and John and Micah had been talking about Micah getting a haircut all day while I was gone.   Micah agreed that John could cut his hair. 

When the time came for the hair cut to commence, Micah tried to back out.  But we got him to sit still for John to cut his hair.  But then the clippers died.  And this is the result:


Micah was not pleased.  And neither were we because he looked like he had some weird kind of comb-over.  We found another pair of clippers and got the deed done.  But I just thought this picture was too funny not to share.

Here is the after picture:


Now that is one handsome boy!
