We got our Christmas tree yesterday, probably the earliest we've ever gotten it. Clementine helped pick it.
She was most helpful with the decorating as well.
Speaking of trees and Christmas, I got a cute advent calendar in Seattle the other day.
I loved the advent calendar as a kid -- my mom has one sewn by my grandmother, with pockets for candy, and my brother and sister and I had to take turns getting the candy. So we'd count ahead to see which days would be ours, and swap the candy around so we'd get what we wanted. It inevitably became the War of the Candy. Ah, memories . . .
And, oh, also spotted in Seattle:
Cute. No cupcakes were accosted by us. We had leftover pie waiting in the car and ate it with plastic forks before driving home to Portland!
