Deck the Halls

The evening after Thanksgiving is our appointed day to begin our Christmas decorating. We have collected ornaments from all over the world as we have travelled, and we enjoy reminiscing as we hang them on the tree.

This year we had to remind the children to hang the breakable ornaments up high on the tree,
but despite our best efforts, Sophie still had fun undecorating for us!

Sophie also decided that it was the perfect time to begin walking... She practically couldn't stop herself!

(had to include this one... look at that cute bum!!)

Well, I guess that's one good thing about having an artificial tree.

Your kids are so good looking!

We (me, Hugh, Elizabeth, Lyle, Mom, and Dad) were just discussing how insanely good all the Riggs offspring look, and how we hope we aren't the only one who has not-pretty children.

Wow, you are an early decorator! We will probably do ours next weekend or the week after. If I start too early I generally want to throw the tree out the day after Christmas, but if I wait a little longer it can stay til the weekend after! ;)
