Hi I'm Libby!
Today I have the honor of doing a "guest post" for my mom's blog Raising Five. Everyone who reads my mom's blog probably knows about all the craziness that goes on around here!
Today, we got pretty much all of the Christmas decorations out. Including the tree. Everything is scattered across the floor, I mean EVERYTHING! Then accidentally, I broke 2 ornaments by dropping one angel on them. Surprisingly, the angel didn't break:)
Decorating the Christmas tree was always something the whole family did together, until this year. Annie and Ruthie were pretty much the only ones who decorated.
Here's what everyone did:
Dad : Working on a candy cane stake that didn't work:
Mom : Helping Dad (Mom's note: "Helping," by definition, is sometimes knowing when NOT to help...After a disturbingly long struggle, we both agreed we should trash it and look for some other cheap yard decor).
Allie-15: Lying down on the couch (Mom's note: To her credit, Allie was awake. She didn't feel good, and was a good sport to cheer on our decorating efforts).
Neal-13 : On the computer (smart man).
Me : Watching everyone/ lying on the couch (Mom's note: not entirely true. Libby organizes all of us, including a "practice run" of Christmas morning, in which she located robes AND slippers (quite a feat around here!) for herself and the little girls):
Annie-7 : Decorating
Ruthie-4: Decorating (Mom's note: all of the little girls' "decorating" is at eye-level (for them) and down, and Ruthie specializes in loading up branches just inches above the floor, like this):
Okay, this was fun (maybe I should get a blog!)
P.S Libby is not my real name! And I'm learning how to crochet!(Mom's note: Just because this is MY blog and I think this is a great picture, I'm including it here. I love my Libby girl.)! And no, I'm not trying to be artsy by posting all black-and-white photos. "Someone" changed the setting on the camera. ACK!!
