Preparing for Christmas

 We've had a great advent season this year so far! The kids have really enjoyed every step of the way. Here they are posing in Seth's new chair.

Hannah joined Erica in making one of the Clark households many varieties of Christmas cookies.  She got a little overzealous on the sprinkles but not bad for a rookie. 

 Eastside Church of God put on a fantastic Nativity celebration that we enjoyed with cousin Jed and the Ringger grandparents.  Before we went in to see the live nativity, Hannah was acting scared and said "I'm scared of Baby Jesus"!  Ha!  She loved it when she actually saw the baby!  She really likes playing with our nativity scene at home.  It is so sweet to hear her talk and be excited about the Christmas story. 

We were fortunate to have a beautiful morning to pick out a tree. We knew Seth's instincts would be to pull the tree over multiple times so we thought about the tree below. 
We opted for a baby gate to surround it instead. 

  We had a lot of fun decorating the Christmas tree the first time (not the second or third time after the tree fell).

  And Finally, Seth and Hannah love the idea of a Santa Claus.  They are terrified by the personification though.
