Last night we gathered the kids around the tree and officially blessed it. Our first-ever tree blessing.
There was some shoving, some giggling, hitting (playful jabs by Luke) and some shushing. Overall, exactly what one would expect with five kids, 9 and under. We said a few prayers (click on the link above) and then lit ‘er up. Great fun. Tomorrow, tune in for our top ten photos from the annual trip to the Salado Christmas Tree Farm…and for a REALLY hilarious story. Honestly, folks, I can’t make this stuff up.
