Christmas Starts With Decorating Right After Thanksgiving
Actually, the day after Thanksgiving the boxes come out and the labor of love begins!
Eddie was here to assist in the gathering of decorations
Dave also helped.... Which one is Dave McTevia???
Paul collects chandeliers and the moose watches the excitement
Every surface gets filled with goodies
Everything has its place
You can't see the front room from the kitchen anymore
We enlisted the "boys", Eddie Chartier and Dave McTevia to decorate
You should see the bar this year!
No surface is free at Christmas time
Mr. Sleepy (the Sarge)
Sarge keeps out of the way and Eddie displays his physique!

The Big Boys Do The Outside Lights
Flower is the garden dog today
Pete reaches while Flower provides detailed instructions
Grandpa and Cassie and JAckie
Pete does the difficult work climbing up and down the ladder many times to hand the outside lights. He does a darned good job every year so we are going to keep him coming back.
Just a few more decorations to go!
Even Valentine gets in on assisting the boys!
