Decorating for Christmas

We did our annual Christmas decorating on a weekend before all the birthdays - that is apparently a must!  Casey, Amanda, Alex, and Sonya spent a chunk of time working on it, Curt helped some too!

We put out the camera for anyone to pick up and use whenever they wanted, so we got some interesting pictures this year (not all of them made it to the website!!).

Amanda and Casey are SOOO happy to see this Santa!

All three of our babies on Santa's lap (see the poor stuffed Santa on the side of Alex??!!)
