Let There Be Light(s)

Some of you are really ungrateful. It seems Saturday's post was NOT enough for you. Bleh.

Here's the decorated tree. Brandon used 1300 lights on it. I was mad. Anyway, the kids helped us decorate and had a great time doing it. Eamon was especially helpful, bringing me ornaments to put on and climbing on the window sill like he saw me do. Our old tree topper was just too small for this bohemoth, so I ran to Tai Pan (that rhymed!) today and bought an oversize ornament, cut off one of the spikes and rammed it on the top. It's pretty sparkly and has some reflective craziness on it, kinda like a Christmas disco ball. Oh well.

This is one of my favorites. Brandon's Mom made this for us out of salt dough for Cam's first Christmas. I just love it! And the outfits look just like the clothes we wore around that time.

When we celebrated our first Christmases as a couple, I collected frog-themed ornaments. They are a little unorthodox, but MAN, was I crazy for frogs back in my youth. Even my Mom bought me frog ornaments. Love them!

And last, but certainly not least, is Brandon and me in a special pose, from my house to yours. Hope it warms your heart.
