Christmas Tree is Up!

Today we put up our Christmas tree and I remembered to pull out my camera! Here are a few pictures from the fun. First up, all 9 kids with the completed tree. I probably should have taken a picture before handing out candy canes. Because who wants to stop licking their candy cane to smile? Certainly not some of my sons.

And a second picture just because I can.

This is the first Christmas Tobias was able to 'help' decorate the tree. He loved the ornaments. The actual decorating didn't interest him, he just wanted to play with the ornaments.

A peek at the chaos of decorating.

Now we wait to see how long before half the ornaments are taken off the tree by little hands. And we're making guesses as to who will be the first one to knock the tree over too...


  1. I think the candy canes make the picture all the sweeter. :) We did the same thing last week--tree decorating followed by candy canes.

    Here's hoping your tree remains upright! (We put ours in a pack and play!)

  2. LOL! The tree and kids look great.

  3. The kids look like they were having a blast! I love seeing the pictures where you have them all together. I also like your tree! Have a Merry Christmas!

  4. You asked ~ We love Cover Story. We are doing it with a homeschool friend and it is a bit of a group effort. They do plan to make separate magazines. That is the project that will be the end result when they complete Cover Story.
    Blessings, Dawn
