Oh Christmas Tree

On this, the first of my many back-up blog postings, we will go back to earlier this month and the (early) celebration of Natalie and my birthday! We first went out to dinner at Rio Grande and then got a tree and decorated it.

Me and Natalie with our gifts from each other. (And I realize this picture looks ridiculous. You'd think I could have just moved over to sit by her....)
Quentin enjoying the festivities with a little jig.
Natalie picked the perfect tree, but we put it back because it was too tall. :)
The little family with our friendly little tree.
The Bells - it was really cold, but at least it wasn't as cold as last year!
Andrew helping to tighten the tree stand. He is soooo helpful. :) And sooooooo cute.
Did I mention he's helpful? Even with the lights.
Quentin couldn't have done it without him.
Decorating the tree. (No, of COURSE he wasn't just pulling an ornament off here. Sheesh. Ok, maybe he was.)
Making the Bells do the dirty work. Isn't that what Christmas is all about?
Tired lady hanging up an ornament.
The gang (and me with a broken neck apparently)

I've really slacked off lately on blogging, so this will be the first of many........ :) Merry Christmas!!

Can you believe it's almost Christmas? It seems like we just get our tree up and suddenly it's time to take it down again. Are you able to keep any ornaments on it??
