It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

The last we spoke, there was talk of the perfect Christmas tree and how we found it. It was, and forever shall be, beheld as the most magnificent tree in all the land. So say we all. So say we all.

Two of my siblings, Walker and Weatherly, came by to help us decorate for Christmas and the men got right to work putting up the tree.

Of course, it was too tall for our ceiling so a little snip, snip was in order. Canon was less than enthused that they were cutting his tree, as you can see in his face below.

Ever the poser. Er, I mean, one who always poses for pictures. Gah.

The tree huggers were out in full force too. Move along people. Plenty of other fauna to fawn over outside.

You know how families have silly little traditions that everyone must partake in, no matter how small it seems? Well apparently, we started one by having each person cut a little of the netting away until the tree was free. It took a while, but it was oddly satisfying to cut away piece by piece until the limbs finally gave way.

See what I mean about the posing? It's a good thing she's cute.

I pack our Christmas books with all of the decorations so that they are 'special' during the season. Canon loves to pour over them every year and read the stories all again. At some point I am going to get my act together and we will read a different one each night before Christmas. Or he is just going to learn to read on his own and he will handle it. The latter is more probable.

After the tree was freed, Santa and his reindeer began trimming it with lights.

And apparently used their elfin magic to decorate everything else in a snap. Har har. A snap. Get it? I sleigh myself. Man, I am on a roll tonight.

You know, it is pretty hard to talk about Christmas decorations when it is 70 degrees outside. I feel like if I skip over all of these months, though, I will be doing myself - and you - a disservice. That probably isn't true, but I am going to continue thinking it so that I feel better about my decision. Don't worry, we will get through all of the good tidings of great joy soon. Thanks for sticking with me!
