Here is an aerial view of the trees. I forgot to tell Alpheus to buy the waffle cones that were flat on the round edge and he bought the ones that have one high side to the cone. Rose had to cut them down to sit. You can see that Hannah chose to have one leaning tree. The girls each decorated two trees.
Speaking of family gathering, we had a wonderful time at the Short Christmas Party for 2012. We just hope to get all the family there for the next one!
|My wonderful parents!|
|Bruce and his son, Ben. I missed getting Leah (wife and mom) in the picture, but she was there!|
|My sweet girls who enjoyed decorating before we started!|
|My brother Monte and his wife, Sharon. Bryce, Monte's youngest son was there, but we missed having Aaron, his oldest and Kyle, Sharon's son.|
|So glad to have Uncle Harry (mom's brother) and Aunt Lisa with us! It would have been so nice to have all my aunts and uncles there, but alas, only one lives close enough.|
Here is everyone that made it except for my sister, Lorilyn, who is taking the picture. :)
P.S. Did you see the trees? :)
