Saturday was tree decorating day. Liam and Bill went to the market to do the tree hunting. I had to go to my market so the only thing that I did in regards to decorating the tree was to dig out the boxes of ornaments from the back shed. Bill put up the tree and did the lights so that the kids could decorate it. Usually there is a flurry of children throwing ornaments on the tree, but this year, apparently the boys were not really interested and so Mira decorated most of it all by herself. She did a really great job.
We were also suppose to get a big storm yesterday and last night and everyone thought that schools were going to be cancelled. Alas, it was not as bad as was predicted and the little darlings have to go to school today. I have to go to work. Bill was planning to stay home any way because he has a pile of exams to mark. At least he will be able to do it in relative quiet.
