Well, the good news is that we finished decorating the tree with three days to spare.
I think you can see why I put off decorating the tree until today. Too much on my plate without constantly chasing a toddler away from the tree, cleaning up broken bulbs, or tending to cut fingers… or tongues :-)
Here’s what the tree looks like if the 5 year old and 7 year old decorate while you sit back and take pictures.
And speaking of taking pictures… I know you’re tired of lists. And of checking them twice. (I know, I know, you’ve checked them a hundred times!) But here’s one more list that I think will help all of us record Christmas 2011. Brooke Snow, whom I admire for both her photography and her general outlook on life (read this recent post on Dealing With Disappointment!), has compiled a wonderful Christmas shot list. And as she says, work through the list, put the camera away and enjoy!!! :-)
Joy to the World, everyone!!!!!!!!!
