Blessing the Tree

Welcome, Advent!  
Lord, we can't wait for your Coming.

Blessing of the Christmas Tree
Leader: All the earth has seen the saving power of God.
All: Joy to the World, the Lord (will) has come.
Leader: The Lord has made His salvation known.
All: Let earth receive her King.
Leader: Let us pray.
All: Almighty Father, we ask you to bless this tree that we have decorated as a sign and reminder that the coming of your Son brought light and joy to the world.  Help us to be bright lights bringing joy to others.  We ask this through Jesus, your Son.  

This year, we let the kids decorate the Christmas tree.

They were doing a great job.  

Of course, most of the ornaments were being hung at a surprisingly uniform level.
After all, one can only reach so high.

G-Bear found a way around the problem.
Obviously, I wasn't watching the whole time.

Clearly, however, someone was watching at this time. 

Ahem?  Are we really okay with this?

I guess T did buy a new tree stand this year.  
We are really putting its sturdiness to the test.

The tree remained standing.  
It really does look lovely, thanks to the Bears.

Happily Ever,
Queen B
