Here are some photos from the day... but remember, I'm using D.'s camera as a stop gap until we finally get one and to say I don't like it wouldn't quite convey my feelings towards it. It is just a big pain to use. And, I don't use it very well as you will soon see. Not that any of you have ever come here for the photography... except maybe to laugh. (Go ahead, it's alright. I really don't blame you.) These were all taken after the boxes were all put away.
I think we'll be able to squeeze in two more stockings, don't you think?
Bad picture #1... but a Christmas tree looks pretty even when blurry, right?
Here's Gretel doing her best calm and quiet dog imitation. Don't believe it for a moment. She ended up having to rest in her crate for much of the party.
It's not a party without snacks, right? Or what used to be snacks...
Here's really bad picture #2. It's supposed to be our front staircase all decorated. Just pretend, OK?
Another part of the front hall.
Enjoying the tree
I also got out our snowman game. It's sort of like tic-tac-toe.
Other people played a game of Dutch Blitz. (If you don't own this game, you should really get it. It's great fun.)
I caught G. just playing with the snowmen. They're pretty cute snowmen.
At least the house is ready for Christmas now.
