Decorating For Christmas 2001
Valentine and Pinky know to get out of the way and watch the action unfold!
We have little elves helping this year, Jackie and Cassie
Pete holds the box with his head while Paul decorates the top of the tree
From Italy! It is labeled "Fra Jilly"
The stuffed animals also watch the show
The excitement in a child's eyes is amazing
The Tree Goes Up Piece By Piece
Christmas begins with the tree
"Are you sure it goes this way?"
"Now how does this go???"
The Chartier brothers get the tree put together
Excellent; Eddie is now up on the ladder
"This is tedious work but it is fun"
Sue supervises the underneath of the tree
Everybody Gets In On The Action
Dave comes over to supervise
More boxes... eek!
Pete and Valentine take a break!
Food break... Notice the Chihuahua's finally get up to help
Eddie and Sarge are deep in conversation
It's dark and we are not done yet
Boxes being staged
Dave reads to Cassie from the Christmas Book
"I Spy", Dave's favorite book
Eddie likes decorating the smaller ones
Jackie found her favorite
Sue, always near the kitchen
No fire this year
"If I see one more tree!!"
"Look, I have a grin for you"
It's starting to look a lot like Christmas
"What are you doing with that camera?"
Paul's favorite type of ornament
