So... we disagreed for weeks about whether we
should get a real or fake tree...
I voted for fake. Real trees are more work and
shed their needles. Given that we have a 1 year old
who likes to put everything in his mouth I presented
a very strong case against the choking hazard, and won.
So... we went and got ourselves a fake tree.
It sheds more than any real tree I have ever seen.
(I shake out the tree skirt outside every afternoon before
David comes home so I don't have to hear about it)
Bracken helping with the ornaments...
...and right in the mouth.
Reagan straightens a snowflake.
Our new tree in all of it's shedding glory!!!
New stockings, too!
(this was my first attempt at iron-on
lettering and now I am hooked...
does anyone need anything spelled in
glittery silver 2" letters?)
My favorite part of our decorations...
our mirror covered with cards and photos
from friends and family!!
First attempt at 10-second delay family photo.
Second attempt at 10-second delay family photo.
(it was 8 seconds too long for Bracken)
There we go.
