No Tree - by Brad

This year we decided to be environmentally friendly and not get a Christmas tree.

Not really, we just didn't want to spend the money on one. Since we only have one Christmas present for our family (which we still have not opened yet), there won't be many presents to put under a tree. Also, we won't be home for the few days around Christmas as we are going to the Oregon coast with Lindsey's family.

All these reasons added up to the decision to forego a tree this year. Surprisingly, the boys don't seem to care.

Nonetheless, early last week we still decorated the house and had an evening of Christmas music, making rice crispy treats, hot chocolate, and the Grinch.

Lindsey couldn't get enough frosting, she had to go straight to the tube...

OH MAN! GREAT caption on pic 3! But Lindsey certainly doesn't look like she's been sneaking frosting...

Linz, it looks like you can take the hit. You look really good! Plus, there is NO SHAME in a sweet tooth. Peaby and I have very happy lives with serious sweet... teeth? That doesn't sound right. Sweet tooths? nah.

Also, I'm glad to see Wes without a shirt, b/c Carson rocks that look quite a bit.
