Chance saved our tree! Isn't it glorious? Emma wasn't satisfied that we didn't put everything on the tree tonight and told us all that we didn't have the Christmas Spirit. And then she had a time out on the stairs....But the tree has been rescued! So, Merry Christmas!
Also, earlier yesterday we discovered that our little elves had taken it upon themselves to do a little decorating without us. Noah and Emma placed a bunch of Ben10 toys throughout the tree. Their ingenuity makes me smile.
"But, you know, that old Grinch was so smart and so slick
He thought up a lie, and he thought it up quick!
'Why, my sweet little tot,' the fake Santy Claus lied,
'There's a light on this tree that won't light on one side.
So I'm taking it home to my workshop, my dear.
I'll fix it up there. Then I'll bring it back here.'"
~Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas
