O Christmas Trees! O Christmas Trees! How lovely are your branches.....

We finally got our tree decorated last weekend. Here are some shots of it, especially since the weather is too terrible to travel and no one will get to enjoy it with us. Maybe Aaron and Megan if they're not snowed in... We are getting some crazy weather last week and next week. Today we got ~10" of snow dumped on us, and tomorrow's going to be even worse. It usually doesn't snow in Oregon, so this is really difficult for people to deal with. Portland has all of 2 snow plows in the city... they can't keep up with this.

Adrianne spent most of the day trying to help me lick envelopes for our Christmas cards. The problem was that she would lick all of the sticky off in one location, then nothing on the rest of the envelope. Finally, I had to get Ron to do the job when he was home on one of his breaks.

Ron tried to keep Anna out of trouble, but as you can see, she was trying to eat all of the fake garland and fake poinsettas she could get her mouth on. Luckily they were fake... I don't think she ate very much.

Did I mention the snow here? It never snows! this is crazy weather...
Here are some shots of the front yard and street:

And here are some shots of the back yard. Too much snow!!

I'll probably sign in again before Christmas, but if not, HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!!!

Pretty tree. I like the picture of Anna trying to eat the garland. That is so funny. Your yard looks like ours...too much snow, agreed. Church was canceled for the second Sunday in a row today. Crazy!
