Deck Their Halls

"Black Friday" is of course known for the biggest shopping day of the year. Those who aren't out shopping are, I imagine, breaking the Boughs of Holly out of mothballs and dutifully decorating in preparation for the upcoming month of Christmas merriment.

I, on the other hand, am usually still recovering from Thanksgiving--either from the cooking of the dinner, or the eating way too much of it! (ideally in my pajamas and fuzzy slippers for as long as possible!)

So, since we were fortunate enough to be spending the weekend at Grandma and Grandpa's in
King, the kiddos got to have a decorating extravaganza!! Never have more decorations been so enthusiastically squeezed into every nook and cranny of a house.

Since Grandma never met a Snowman or Santa she didn't like for her collection,

this process took quite a while!

It was a happy day for all of us: the kids had a grand time assembling the tree, wrapping on the lights, and examining all of the beautiful ornaments and decorations.......and I got to watch (from the couch!)
