Choosing the Christmas Tree

Each year for Christmas we alternate the kids and let one of them choose our Christmas tree, and each year we forget who chose the tree the previous Christmas. I am documentig here to make it official, this year Edward chose our tree and next year it will be JiaLi's turn. Edward was so cute--he was our speediest chooser yet. He saw two trees and made a comment that one of them was too small and too wide but as soon as he saw this tree(which was the other of the two trees), he said "this is my tree." His mind was made up. We got the tree two weekends ago and finally decorated Saturday. Danny and Jenise are at the same school this year and they each had a chorus concert last Tuesday. We had our adoption class last Tuesday evening during their concert and since we did miss one class in November, we wanted to make sure we did not miss again.(We cannot miss more than two.) Luckily Gramma and Papa were able to bring them and not only did they bring them to the concert but they also brought them out for dinner. Thank you Gramma and Papa!!! We are thankful too that our local Cable channel recorded their show and we will be able to watch it on our local channel this week or next week:) The rest of the pictures are the kids decorating the tree and posing with the finished product at the end. Their pose was all them--nothing to do with Mommy or Daddy. If you click on it, you can see their expressions even better.
