Oh Christmas tree

Our tree is up and all decked even though there is barely a dusting of snow on the ground. We had fun searching for the perfect one.

Keith told me about a conversation that took place between him and Ethan today. Keith happened to notice Ethan bowing down to the Christmas tree and said, "Why are you bowing? Where did you learn about that?"
Ethan said, "You bow to God."
Keith: "But God's not in the tree."
Ethan: "He could be in some of the ornaments."

Also, Leslie Harpold's Advent Calendar is up again this year...it's fun.

And I just have to include this photo I took last night of an unusually quiet moment in our house. I just love it.

Uh oh, sounds like we have a little earth worshipper on his way, heh, heh, heh, just kidding :-)

Wait- isn't that called animism? Or pantheism? SO FUNNY! I can't believe that! Great picture too.

Great story, maybe Ethan has watched too many Jackie Chan movies, all that bowing. Is Keith doing sudoku on the couch?

KJ--you are welcome anytime...as long as you dont mind a little tree worship.

Rhoda--Yup, you guessed it. I put notes on my flickr picture about what each of them are doing.
