I came home from vacation to this. Apparently they were so excited they already did the song and had some cake at lunch time. #blessed #family

After wrestling with the tree stand on Saturday, here’s a little update. I waited a day to decorate, worried that the tree might topple. And… topple it did. Three days later. It now leans heavily against my desk. The ornaments survived but the poinsettia my brother gave me looks a little worse for wear.
