One week ago today, my high school aged son had his first snow day of the school year. We did seem to get a little snow overnight but I think it was more the slowness in getting roads cleared that caused first an announced delay and then closure. The Christmas tree had been sitting in the living room for a week but was not decorated yet.
Number 6 insisted this was the perfect time to decorate the tree. The driveway had been shoveled. He put Trans Siberian Orchestra on and started in by putting the gold beads on the pre-lit tree.
What comes next is a mish mash of the whirling dervish you see in one of these photos that would be Number 6 and his older sister, Number 3, as they decorated the tree.
After doing the tree decorating and many of the other holiday items, I started getting cocoa ready for the kids. We all sat, listening to holiday tunes, while drinking our own favorite cocoa.
