Signs of the season

I figured we'd better get the tree "up high" again this year since there's a two-and-a-half year old around who happens to be obsessed with light switches, thermostats, and anything else he can reach to mess around with. It takes a team to get everything up to the landing and then onto the tree. You can see Carrie's arm handing hooked ornaments to Liam who then hands them up to me. Dada helped get all the big boxes up to the landing in the first place. Now it's up and there are presents under it already!

No, Dada and PaPa are not critiquing the tree. We are waiting for Liam's Christmas concert to begin! Here is the handsome singer with his friend C from preschool...

For a wonder, both kids actually kept a secret. Liam wanted to surprise us with his performance ringing chimes during the first song. He was all the way on the other side of the stage from where he'd told us to sit (because of where he'd be the REST of the concert) and Carrie, who'd sat through the concert during the school's assembly that day, didn't mention it either! So there he is, millions of heads between us, happily ringing chimes!

Where's Waldo? I mean Liam. Blue shirt, right side.

AND, to PaPa's approval, someone actually did the motions!
