It takes up half the living room, but...TOTALLY WORTH IT. I just sit and stare at the shiny, twinkly gloriousness of it all.
Is it just me, or did Sophie age three years while we were putting up the tree? She's looking so grown up these days. It's nuts!
While I was cooking, Sophie got to decorate her little tree all by herself. She did an excellent job of placing all fifty ornaments in one spot. She couldn't understand why it kept toppling over.
After a little chat about weight distribution, ta dah! Beautimus!
Making homemade applesauce with Daddy (and sampling along the way). Man, it made the house smell good! Apples with cinnamon, brown sugar, and a little nutmeg. Mmm.
An up-close look at some of our ornaments. (...Which is exciting, I'm sure, only to me.) Fa lalalalala la la la la!
Mesmerized by the sparkly gold disco ball ornament.
Sophie was still in a decorating mood after tackling the trees, so she unleashed her Creative Genius on me.
I couldn't get a very good night shot of the lights on the house. It's way prettier in person. Enough so to make Sophie yell "Oooooo, look!" every time we walk outside.
Chillin' by the tree with Daddy and watching The Wizard of Oz.
Something about putting up the Christmas decorations made us really miss you, Walt and Annie. We love you oodles! Hope to talk to you on Skype soon!
