'Tis The Season Thursday *Giveaway*


Our Christmas tree was decorated last Saturday.  I loved watching Hudson place ornaments on the tree.  After everything was hung he asked for more things to put up.  I told him that was all for now, but we will be making more before Christmas.

Craig had the brilliant idea to set up our camera so that it takes a sequence of random pictures as we were decorating.
We got some terrible pictures like this :





( No I had not been drinking!)

And some really sweet ones like this:

 Carefully placing all of the ornaments on the same branch.  It's the best branch of course and all of the ornaments deserve to be on it :)

We made the evening festive with a chicken dinner with all the trimmings (except i forgot cranberry sauce, but there were cranberries in the stuffing.)



The Grand Finale.

Ooooh Ahhh!
Is your home decorated for Christmas yet?  Ours is not done being decorated but the tree is a good start.
