Christmas at the farm

I think we did pretty well for a first time decorating a tree at the farm.

David got us startedby fashioning a homemade star for the top of the tree.  I didn't check too closely, but I think it is made from a side of a cardboard box found in the recycling bin....pretty crafty of him, huh?

The kids had a lot of fun cutting their snowflakes.  My mistake was not taking enough blank snowflakes out for them to use.  They were still looking for more when we ran out.

The other issue was that I didn't have any luck stringing popcorn.  The kernels were too small and crumbled the moment they were touched with a needle.  I know I've strung popcorn before.  I'm going to have to refine my technique for next year.

The kids were a little disappointed that they didn't get to string popcorn but recovered quickly when they realized that meant there was TONS of popcorn for them to eat.

Anyway, here's some views of the finished product.

After the kids went to bed last Saturday evening, David and I played a little game of dueling cameras.

He recently bought a new lens for his camera and so we spent the better part of the evening snapping pictures and comparing our results.

Kind of a strange thing to do probably, but relaxing and fun too.

It's beginning to look a lot (more) like Christmas around here.

The three or four inches of snow and ice forecast for tonight will help it look even MORE like Christmas.

Sounds like I might be sitting home with kids for a couple days.
