We finally started Christmas decorating, which means we have the tree up and there are some ornaments on it and a lot of tubs of other Christmas stuff now overflowing and disorganized and scattered about. I don't think the tree is done because it looks sort of scraggly and empty and lame. Dev does always thinks I put way too much on it and make it looks bad that way, so maybe it is done. Even if it's done, I don't think it has nearly enough lights because it wasn't even bright enough to take photos of the kids decorating it without a flash. (Which means I should've used the flash, but instead I took like 20 blurry pictures while annoyed that I can't ever get this camera to work and gave up...instead of just turning on the flash.)
But this part was one of Lex's highlights--just getting the tree set up. He kept dancing around yelling "A Tree! A tree! INSIDE!!! A tree inside!!" I guess it must see like some sort of special day if you decide to pull a 15-foot tree inside the house and stand it up, especially if you don't remember that ever happening before.
