Getting Ready for Christmas

We started our weekend out by getting our Christmas tree out and decorated (yes, ours in artifical). The girls put most of the ornaments on, especially Halee. She put them mostly in the same spot. So, the majority of the ornaments this year are on the bottom right in this picture.
Then on Saturday we went downtown to decorate gingerbread houses. Every year on Christmas Stroll day, someone (I'm not sure who) puts on this event. They have all the supplies and you just get to have fun decorating. They give you an empty milk carton, a surface to build it on (we had pie plates) and a bag of candy. On the table is the frosting and trays of cereal, marshmellows and pretzels. And away you go! Here is Halee.

And here is Hannah.

Saturday afternoon, Ed built this fort for the girls. He used 3 boxes and duct taped them all together with a door and window. Believe it or not, both girls fit in it!
Today, Ed started putting some lights on the outside of our house. But before he did, he put some lights on Hannah! Halee wouldn't go for it.
