There's a lot of Sapp in here...a lot of Sapp

I've been bugging Randy to put up the Christmas tree for weeks now, and this weekend he finally conceded. If you know me at all, you know that I love Christmas! I can't wait to put up the tree and decorate the house with lights and bulbs and ribbons. I love the reflection of the lights in Garrett's eyes as he looks at the Christmas tree and says, "Wow!"
Well, this year was no disappointment. This is Charlotte's first Christmas and the first year I saw her eyes dance with lights! Poppy, Nana, Aunt Dana, and Mama Cook were all in attendance for the big event. There was Christmas music playing, much to Randy's disapproval ("Does this mean that we will have to listen to this music for 2 months?" Yes, it does!) Here are the highlights:
We got through with only 1 broken bulb and 1 good-talking-to!
And what Christmas is complete without 1 teenager with her iPod shoved in her ear as to drown out the merriment of the season!
Thursday night, we made Rice Krispie treats with red and green M&Ms. Garrett loves to help--I think its mostly because this is the only time he can stand on the furniture!
Garrett had to take another peek!
