Decorating for Christmas

Here are a few pictures of our Christmas decorating this year. I have pretty much given over the decorating of the tree to the kids. This was difficult the first year because I usually place each ornament with care in 'just the right spot' and they tended to put five ornaments in a 6 inch square and leave large areas bare of any ornaments. But the kids wanted to decorate the tree so I got over it and every time I looked at the tree and saw what silly things they'd done I'd think of them and smile. Now I am completely content to let them decorate the tree, and they get better every year. (-:

First, Isaiah decorates the dog.
(while Samuel tries to untangle another strand of Christmas lights.)

Can you tell what famous lady Samuel is impersonating?

Miriam's version. She's not unhappy, just taking the part seriously.

Our tree.

Isaiah putting up some garland.

Lights on our living room windows. We later added a red and silver garland to the center but apparently I didn't get a picture of that.

All this decorating put Joshua in the mood to sing Christmas carols. I love him!

Merry Christmas!
