Preview of Christmas

First, here's Elly, standing but not walking. She actually did take one step yesterday but she doesn't realize that it's something she could be doing on a regular basis.


Sara's Christmas tree and ornaments were destroyed in their floods earlier this year, so this year she gets to buy a new tree and new ornaments. From among the ones she put up last night, these are my favorite...

A feathered owl, bought because Grammie loves owls - and she's very smart too ;)


My very favorite, Sara's frog prince, to honor Quincey


I love pictures of babies by the Christmas tree.
Here Elly is playing with Max's favorite ornament, a penquin.

Another baby picture.

It's a bit too early for me to put our tree up, but I always get a few new ornaments for it - it's part of the fun.

Avril always hounds me to get a tree at the end of November, but she insists on having real trees, so I don't let her have one until the second week of December.

You're a hard man Mike. Everyone knows that now.

Sorry Sara. I don't know how to add a link. Your photo ornaments weren't on the tree yet.

Mike, real trees are a fire hazard. Wait till a week before Christmas.

Sara's ornaments are awesome! I should get my tree up before my job swallows the rest of my free time

sara said...

that's my motivation for getting it up early

I think it's all in the ornaments. I have so many I have to put two and three to a limb, but what the heck, I say, Deck the halls! Ellie looks so cute. I like the Frog Prince and the Owl.
