one week before christmas...

three kids set off to find their christmas tree...



they were quickly distracted by the cookies, popcorn and hot chocolate the nursery had to offer as well as the cozy seat by the fire...



finn thought it was hysterical to run away from me into the darkness between the trees, so that i occasionally thought i had actually lost him...




home to decorate our delicous smelling tree (some with more care than others... we have a serious ornament emergency pile sitting on our shelf currently awaiting some super glue) ...





finn found that some branches were deserving of all his love...



and to top it off, the youngest gets to put the angel on top of the tree...




apparently, trimming the tree is some seriously hard work (i do believe this is a sign of the week to come.  jack knows how to relax while he is on vacation)...



and this last one is for pete's sister emily (she took it and requested i put it on our blog)...



little known fact (or not so little known):  i hate pickles.
thus, pete thinks it is hilarious to give me a pickle for christmas either wrapped like a present or tucked away in my stocking.  it genuinely disgusts me.  this is actually the pickle he gave me last year.  a one year-old "Hot" 99 cent special pickle from Circle K.  and pete thought he might as well give it a try...  gross.
