Haulin’ Out the Holly

We decorated our tree. The rest of the house still isn’t decorated, but the tree is up.

I thought maybe you’d like to see pictures. šŸ™‚

Please tell me I’m not the only person who dresses her kids in coordinating outfits when we decorate? Gotta look good for pictures . . .

I believe that if this picture had sound she would be saying, “See ball?”

Decorating for Christmas is a very serious matter.

I believe that he is placing yet another ornament in what we shall refer to as “Stinky’s Clump.” There were about ten ornaments all right in one area, even doubled up on the same branches. Bless his little heart. When Bubs saw it he got very obsessive and I think he would have been happy rearranging the tree for about three hours if we had let him. We didn’t.

We put them to bed so Art could do it properly. šŸ˜‰

My little elves.

I just think that picture is seriously hilarious.

Once we had decorated the tree and tortured the children, we put poor tired Squeezy to bed and then we turned off all the lights and had our special family tree-lighting ceremony.

I apologize in advance for the shrill sound of my voice. I was holding the camera so I was right there by the microphone. But I think this video is too funny not to share.

And here we have Stinky with his eggnog, basking in the glow of the tree.

Christmas! What’s not to love?
