December brings great joy and happiness to our family. Both of our children were born in December so festivities begin with our son's birthday on the second. It's a given that the grands want to take their Dad to the Japanese Steakhouse for his birthday. It seems this is the place for everyone to enjoy good food and the entertainment that sends happiness to the grands. Who doesn't want Happy Birthday sung to you in Japanese? So much fun!
What little boys don't want to eat their Dad's birthday cake?
Of course it's time to decorate for Christmas. After Thanksgiving we usually start bringing out the boxes of decor that we have collected through the years. Our decor really tells a story about our family. Do you find yourself placing ornaments on the tree that have been in the family for years and years? We have ornaments on our tree that belonged to our parents along with those that we bought our very first Christmas as husband and wife. So many Christmas'... so many memories.
Grady made this ornament for me when he was in Cub Scouts. Would you believe I'm sentimental?
My Mother-in-Law crocheted this little frame around this photo when Grady was born. She had it on her tree for years. Now it is on ours.
