Show & Tell: Decking GreatGrandma's tree

Daughter Misty likes to help her grandma decorate her tree.
My mom loves her help!
Misty brought us lunch (mmmm, yummy chicken and dumplings Misty style),
came and got me (WOOHOO!),
and brought the kids (double WOO double HOO).
I got to 'corral' the babies while the ladies went to work.
I took tons of pictures trying to get 'the best shots'
(I love digital!)
LauraJune won't smile for the camera, David wants to eat the camera cap...
 

So I just kept snapping away....
 

And ended up with these beauties:
 

AND best shots of the day!
Smiling together!
Hanging 'their' ornaments on their Greatgrandma's tree (with mom's help)
Greatgrandma's tree, all decked out ready for Christmas!!

(and as it seems to run in our family, there was crying, and sneaking out of the corral, chasing, threatening, biting (yep, the little bugger BIT ME!!), playing, teasing, loving, hugging, kissing, and, well you get the picture:)
Thanks Misty for the ride, for helping your Grandma, for yummy nummmy lunch, for just being you!
For Show and Tell notice my mom's gaudy gorgeous tree!!

What cute pictures. I love digital cameras too. Would hate to have to go back to the old fashioned ones with film.

That was such a neat way to show off a bunch of pictures. When they are of such cute lil ones it's so hard to pick one.

What cute shots you got! The kids are all adorable. Good job! Sorry you got bitten :) it kind of comes with the territory, I'm thinking - lol. And, the tree turned out great! Thanks for the fun post.

With such a cute hard working helper, your tree HAS to turn out gorgeous, and it did.

What beautiful babies!! I just love kids and I'm glad that they all came to help you. It looks like a fun day. Sorry you got bitten though and hope it didn't hurt too long. Savannah's at that age where everything goes in her mouth, even parts of Grammy! No teeth yet though so I'll have to beware when she gets them! Merry Christmas!
