As is tradition in our family, we spent part of the weekend after Thanksgiving decorating for Christmas and putting up our Christmas tree. It looks like a mediocre fake tree with too few ornaments but plenty of lights, decorated by a 5 and 3-year-old, which means it's not winning any contests. It's mediocrity is only enhanced by the fact that it spends most of it's time partly hidden by a make-shift baby-blockade. But it makes us quite happy and it'll give Santa a good place to deposit some gifts, and that's what's really important, right? ;) The kids behaved themselves while we braved the aisles of Walmart that morning and they earned themselves $1 Santa hats, so we tried for some pictures and got some that... accurately represent my children.
