Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

During the ice storm we were lucky enough to have some tired, cold, lightless visitors. Grumpy, Granny and Aunt Hannah were a great help decorating our Christmas tree. Actually we all did very little, Madison pretty much tackled the entire thing on her own.

Here she is looking for her next ornament...she wouldn't even stop to pose for a picture.
Lillie...well, she just wasn't sure about the tree. She would stare at it for a long time then reach out and touch it and scowl.
Eli was his usual crazy self. Here he is about to pounce on Granny...again.
We were lucky enough to capture this one picture of the three of them. One of the only good pictures of the season. Most of the time we are having to hold Eli down to get him to take a picture with his sisters.

Ice Storm 2007

Some of you who live out of town have asked about how we weathered the ice storm. Although everyone we knew lost power, somehow we were fortunate to keep the lights on through the whole mess. However, our street was devestated by fallen trees. Here are a couple of pictures of our neighbors yard.
Unfortunately, the yard wasn't the only thing that suffered.
