Breaking Boards and Christmas Trees

Today was a packed day. Christian had Tae Kwon Do this morning and it was board breaking day. Here are some pictures:

We were planning to drive out to Oregon City and chop down a tree at a farm, but on the way to Tae Kwon Do, I saw trees for sale for $10 on a lot. When Christian and I returned home, I told David about it and we drove over. It was great the guy tied the tree on the car for us and everything. We saved money on the gas and the tree and did much less work.
We usually have problems getting the tree in the stand (assuming we can even find our stand). Christian was able to loosen all the screws in the stand for us, then David got the tree it and set straight easily.

Once the tree was in the house, the boys were so excited, they were driving us crazy. The tension level rose quite high and the Norman Rockwell factor was certianly gone. David and I were saying, who needs crazy, drunk relatives to make a crazy, dsyfunctional Christmas. Two hyperactive boys are enough. David put the lights on the tree and the boys decorated. We can't find some of the decorations, but oh well. Less is more.

Here are two layouts I did from our visit to Santa
