Trimming the Tree 2012

I blog and post pictures of our family tree trimming gathering every year, so this year for a change is no different.

We got toegther at Sha's place a week earlier than usual this year because she and Eric are off for a weeklong cruise. Guess who will be babysitting for ten days? Guess who may lose their precarious hold on their sanity?

Here are some pics from the event.

Danica and Amma just before the decorating began.

Mother and daughter wind the ribbon around the tree while the guys do what they do best — nothing.

Well ... some bonding did take place.

Is Amma wondering where the boys are?

JJ certainly did his part. He actually got more into it than Danica.

Almost done. Where are Danica and Buppa? Well, Buppa has an excuse. Danica?

Who are you kidding. Having the grand kits for ten days is really an early Christmas present for the two of you.

Looking good ... and I think the pictures of Cuppa are especially good.
Are you gearing up for a frantic Christmas buying season? They are sure pushing it here on every TV and radio ad. It will be interesting to see what actually transpires.

Lovely family, lovely tree, lovely tradition. Can you guys do no wrong?

We had the grands for 12 hours last week and it was exhausting, so a 10-day stint should earn you and Sue a cruise later. We put our tree up this evening.
