Going Back in Time

While The Girl Next Door is in ChiTown for Trial, we'll be posting some happenings from yesteryear - 2008 and the Christmas season.


Today, we'll start with - Decking the Halls....



First up - the 3 foot "easy tree." I threw it up in about 15 minutes. Except this year Stinky Butt was in the house, trying to eat the "snow" under the tree. Duh. Good thing I know about "bitter apple."



The girls decided they were in charge of decorating outside. So I gladly relinquished the reins. I did have to help with extension cords and shared with them my acquired knowledge of how many watts can you string together before you a) melt the plug or b) have a fire. Why yes, I do know those answers...somewhat from experience....'nuff said.





FINALLY the Bear Stands...




Meanwhile, Son and I Haul the Tree inside.



Until it soon looks like this....





Daughter was recruited to again do the banister - which lights up (no I can't rotate the photo....)



And then we got lazy and tossed the "Basement" bears onto the living room couch. And Voila! We are done...
