Fa La La La La, La La La La

So, apparently we are in the festive spirit. Grant wanted to get the house decorated for Christmas before he goes back to work. He likely won't be home until the 19th or 20th of December, and that is kind of pushing it. That said, I also think that setting up decorations in November is also pushing it. Christmas is still a whole month away! Avery did most of the decorating tonight. She actually did a pretty good job, (says her overly anal mother who wants her tree to be beautiful and symmetrical). Cohen wasn't too bothered one way or another. He was more interested in trying to reach my glass of egg nog on the table. He was successful too. Needless to say, the tree and nativity are up, and a few snowmen here and there, but that is all I plan to do this year. Some years we go overboard, and every bit of wall space, every shelf, table, and counter has some Christmas decoration on it. This year, because it will be up for so long, I don't want to have to look at it all for five weeks. Plus, it will make taking Christmas down much more enjoyable.
So this is a picture of the kids admiring their work. I took a kazillion pictures tonight, which is good, because I have a ton of Christmas paper that will need to be used......
