We decked the halls

As I expected, we had a snow day on Monday because our corner of the world was a sheet of ice. The kids and I decorated the tree. We put old fashioned Christmas carols on (the kids wanted to know who Bing Crosby was!)
They were so excited to remember which ornaments they had made and took great care to find just the right spot on the tree (even if it was on the same branch as another ornament).

And then they cut loose for this picture:

This is really more what trying to get a picture with five kids is like. But I wouldn't change it for the world....
