december 1st.

it's december 1st, which means it's officially time to deck the halls.
while they were down visiting grandma and grandpa frandsen over thanksgiving, jill and steven (peter's sister and brother-in-law), and their kids went up and chopped down their own christmas trees. because i was sick, we weren't able to go, and so they were nice enough to cut us down one and bring it home for us. so tonight we got out our boxes of christmas decorations, turned on some mariah carey's all i want for christmas, as well as some good old frank sinatra christmas, and the soundtrack from elf, and we rocked around the christmas tree as we got a-decorating. it was a fun night and we love our little, tilted christmas tree!
will was totally enamored with the string of lights and he was such a good little helper hanging them on the tree (when he wasn't trying to run off with them, that is).

now it's time to bust out the wassail and mistletoe! merry christmas everyone!

Cute tree! It's not that tilted. Cute little William helper!

Love the 3rd picture of Will and all the lights. He will make Christmas so much fun for you this year. Does the fresh tree smell 'piney?'

Hey, that tree looks pretty good. Tilted and all. Don't you like the pinecones?
