The tree is up and decorated. Here are a few pics from the fun. They look slightly bored, don't they. Claire is wearing her "tree decorating crown."

Clay stole Claire's crown. A minor skirmish ensued.
Meghan and Madison found a surprise when they got here this morning.
Just a reminder that the Cyber Monday sale is going strong on Etsy
