This year we decided to break with tradition. Instead of decorating holiday gingerbread men, we made holiday Rice Krispies Treat Houses. The boys took this project very seriously.

Yesterday we made our annual pilgrimage to the Christmas tree lot.As we entered the premises, I reminded the kids that money is tight and we might want to think about getting a smaller tree than usual. Always cooperative (ha!), James immediately made a beeline to this little tree.
Ryan tends to believe that bigger is better. He bypassed the little trees without a second glance and went right to the tall tree row.
Poor Ryan. I told him $50 or less. His first choice was $2.95 too expensive.
