December is here and we went out to get our tree last night. We managed to get it up with lights and garland by 8pm, then put them to bed. This afternoon the kids put up the ornaments. I took a lot of pictures and did very little in the way of helping them. I have strong feelings about the tree being a "family tree" and not a "decorator tree". So, it is far from perfect and I'm sure our motley crew of ornaments are somewhat bunched up and imperfectly placed. But my little love muffins did their best, and it looks great to me!
My choices seem to be ugly pictures with flash, or blurry darkish pictures with no flash. You can see I prefer no flash. I'm sure if I had actual photography skills I could remedy that. ;-)
