Decorating the Tree

Last night we decorated the tree so here we are taking a silly little family photo with the mac. We had so much fun with the kids. They were so excited they were jumping up and down. I think I put up two ornaments and arranged the rest. Kids put stupid ones in horrible places; some on the same branch and some barely hanging on the bottom. That's going to last.

We topped off our ornament placing with hot cocoa and some truffles and cookies (we all felt gross when we were done) and then Dear Sir caved in and let them watch another installment of The Return of the King. Mind you, our daughter had to "hug" me most of the time and was not allowed to see a lot of it. I still get tense and freak out every time Shelob is around. I hate spiders and I hate big fat ones. That one is the Mack Daddy. Dear Sir continually reminds me that it is "just a movie" which I know and can handle, but it is still hard to look at a spider that size chasing someone. It does look REAL, you know.

I'm arachnaphobic, and have been since an incident in my early childhood. Reading about Shelob many years ago scared the poop out of me. I still haven't watched that entire scene in the film and don't intend to, notwithstanding the fact that Joel is certainly correct in that it is "just a movie"/

my son used to hang all the ornaments on one branch. we laugh about that now. i would wait for him to go to bed, then re-arrange them so as not to hurt his feelers.

good lookin' family!
Again, I am surprised! Had a mental image of Dear Sir! Again, was expecting a military cut. Isn't that funny?
