Christmas Tree, 2014

We set up the Christmas tree yesterday. Kelly stood up the tree. I helped string the lights and a handful of ornaments. The rest of the decorating was done by the kids. Later, they made holiday cookies for the neighbors. Of course, now that the tree is up, it no longer feels like winter. The temperature is approaching 70 F today. Go figure.
