Last year we didn't set up our big Christmas tree because Ben was in Super Destructive Toddler Mode. We knew it wouldn't survive. But this year he's out of the must-knock-down-everything-in-my-path phase, so on Wednesday night we decorated the tree.
It was nice. I love Christmas decorations and though Heath hates the idea of putting all this stuff up and having to take it down only weeks later, I can't imagine this time of year without a tree. It's nice to have that tradition, and even better now that we can do it as a family.
However, this is what happens when we try to take a decent shot of all three of us:
Either Heath looks deranged, I look like a hillbilly and Ben's blurry, or...
My face is covered and Ben's blurry, or...
Ben and I look nice (though he's still slightly blurry), but Heath's still deranged.
There were three others we took that all looked similarly bad. Here's the best one. Ben's not smiling, but at least we're all in focus and looking sane.
