Iris was actually not feeling well at all, but Lucy's determination to have cookies, hot chocolate (generously provided by Daddy), and music as ambiance perked her up after a while.
Here is Stephen getting things started. He normally just sits in the room with us, but some Christmas cheer must have found its way to him ;)
This was the first year we let the kids put in the branches. It was quite nice. I got to feel quite lazy and they didn't fall out, so this is probably the beginning of a lasting tradition :)
The annual gluing back on of the princes and princesses to one of Lucy's oldest ornaments. What a trooper Daddy is!
Daddy decided it was Lu's turn to put up the star... I don't know how he keeps up, but I'm pretty sure he's right.
Forgot to get a group shot until way later...but here it is!
Thanks for your willingness to travel in time with us! More of December in April coming up!
