Decorating Fatty

We kept it simple this year by forgetting to put on any ribbon or garland before we hung the ornaments. So she's looking a little au naturale. The above photo is from my phone, because my phone is killing me in the photo/blog department. It is so much easier to snap a poor quality phone picture and press the facebook button than it is to take real pictures, load them onto the computer and then compose a blog post about said pictures. My blogging has always been largely dependent on essentially journaling with pictures. So basically, my smartphone has been trying to kill my blog since a year ago September when I got it. Don't blame me! Blame the phone and its blasted convenience factor!So the girls and I fell in love with this slightly short and super fat 2 trunked Christmas tree on our tree acquisition outing a couple of weeks ago. It was a challenge to figure out where to put the star without a single top branch to work with, but it turned out fine. Unfortunately, our tree stopped drinking water 24 hours after we got it (almost 2 weeks ago now) and is dropping needles like CRAZY. Hopefully it will not be entirely brown a week from now when it is actually Christmas. I'm one who likes to get the tree down immediately after Christmas though...so it should be fine.
Trying to get Jules to smile for a picture is like asking for a kidney donation.

Belle was on star duty this year. The last 2 years Leia and Juli had that job. Next year, it will be Xander's turn...that should be interesting. Merry Christmas. :)
