Lights, Decorations, Tree

On Monday, Ben and I put the Christmas lights on our house! YAY! For our Family Home Evening (FHE) we put up our tree! Lots getting done! Although, the star is not on top of the tree, need another extension cord. We used them all outside. ha ha.

FHE was fun and my parents came over to help/watch. We had hot cocoa, sang some Christmas songs, and the kids all helped put up the tree (it's fake) and ornaments. Poor Felicia thought that decorating the tree was cutting into our lesson/activity time for FHE. Half-way thru ornaments, she said she wanted us to hurry cuz we were wasting time. ha ha. Apparently, she had some sort of little activity she wanted us to do. (She is really enjoying being in charge - self appointed of course.) I had to explain to her that the tree was the main event for family night and that we don't always have to have a lesson. Family night can be anything we want it to be. Usually there's a lesson involved, but it can also be other things. Ashley insisted that my Mom help her "read" a short story to the group. But it wasn't planned, it just sort of happened cuz we were all sitting down enjoying the pretty tree when she got up and took charge. Maybe that's what upset Felicia, the fact that Ashley got to do something that she wanted but not her. I'm not sure. When we were done we ate birthday cake because Ben's birthday was Sunday. All-in-all, it was a good day!
