Ward Christmas Party & Our Tree

Saturday was our ward's Christmas party. Russ took the kids over while I stayed home with Dylan. Which is what would have happened even if Dylan weren't sick then, which he was. Russ thought to bring along the camera for pictures with Santa. Since I wasn't actually there, I don't have a lot to say about what happened. This post is mostly for pictures.

I think Lyssa's expression in this picture is funny. I just do.
I put this and the next picture in because here Jimmy is doing the rabbit ear thing to Santa. In the next, Santa is doing it back to Jimmy.

A couple of weeks ago the kids begged and begged to put up the Christmas tree. We've had our little tree since Russ and I got married. It's getting to be quite the sad little tree. Branches are breaking and everything. But it works. Since Dylan would pull off most ornaments anyway, I bought a few packages of candy canes to cover the tree. The kids had lots of fun putting them on. It should be noted that there are only a few left on the tree. All of which are ones Dylan can't reach. Which is kind of funny since he wasn't the only one taking them off the tree.
As you can see in this picture, Dylan was trying to eat the candy canes before they were even on the tree.
Molly really, really wanted to put one up high on the tree. She didn't knock the tree over putting it on. No, she waited a few days and then knocked it over grabbing a candy cane off.
