who's having fun?

so christmas is up and running at the anderson household. we found our perfect tree at a family tree stand in springville. sy managed to worm his way into the little heated shack the stand owners camp out in and boy did he hit the jackpot. it was warm, had a wood burning stove, television and christmas marshmallows (or as sy likes to say, "smarshmallows"). it also just so happened that the owners' son works for frito lay so the boys also made out with animal crackers and cheetos. it was a fruitful adventure for all.

and now for the answer to my title question...craig is having fun!
many thanks to 2 enthusiastic little boys who helped me decorate and 1 compliant husband who remained wedged behind the tree while his wife said things like, "a little more to the left, ok, pull it back into the corner more, and...can we twist it??"

My kids say "smarshsmallows" too! :) And is it just me, or are santas looking more and more real these days? Much better than the laps we used to sit on.

I miss the ritual of picking out a fresh tree. Andrew made me buy artificial last year. It's nice that the cat isn't eating needles and yarfing all the time though...

We visited this very Santa! He's the best...and he keeps coming back to University Mall every year too! (Improving the whole believability factor) This is my kids' fourth time seeing this very Santa! But how did you get the picture on here? Did you just scan? Or buy the photo cd?

Must be nice seeing your tree in the house. We put ours up and had to promptly move the small couch in front of it so the little guy wouldn't be eating fake tree for dinner that day. We can see the tip of it though.

I love your festive awesomeness!

Alex called smarshmallows "snocktoos" (don't ask, I have no clue), and so we partake in the snocktoo peeps every christmas.

I am SO jealous of your full and genuinely fragrant tree. BeanPod "Sugar Spruce" candles don't hold a, well, you know, to real-tree-smell.

I'm coming over to take a whiff of your tree...

I love it! Isn't decorating with the fam the best? I think we may have picked our tree up at the same spot - across from Walmart?
