And the stockings were hung fron the chimney (or banister) with care...wouldn't be christmas without stockings right?!
This is our penguin. Grandma Rutu brought some of her extra decorations down for us and this is one of the ones we get to borrow. Aiden loves it. It is so nice to have some of the Christmas spirit here. I find that I am really missing being home with everyone right now. Last night Brent and the girls and some of our friends decorated our tree and I was a little sad that I was unable to be there and help.
