Deck the Halls!

On Wednesday, we decorated our house for Christmas! Dad and most of the rest of the family went on a hike through our property in pursuit of the perfect tree. As usual, we had marked a tree earlier this year that we planned on making our Christmas tree. And as usual, the designated tree just didn't seem as perfect as another close by. Yes, this happens every year! = )

Here are some pics of the Christmas decorating process in our home........
Cassia enjoying the wind-up, carol singing, Christmas figurines.

Zacchaeus putting on his first Christmas ornament!

Terah playing Christmas carols on the piano while Nathanael looks on.

Rachel cleaning up the aftermath from the "Hall Deckers."

Mom also ceaning up the mess.

Benjamin doing a last-minute assembling of a candle decoration.

Wait! Leftover lights must be used! Leaving any lights unhung is a violation of Christmas law. = ) So Ethan literally "Decks the Halls" as he hangs lights above the bedroom doors in the hallway.

Everyone is now thoroughly exhausted, acting wild from too much fun, and waiting for the traditional pic of all the Biller children by the newly decorated Christmas tree.

The end of a fabulous "Hall Decking" night!!!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Hey everybody, here's some pics of the snow that buried our yard and property over six inches deep in several places. It was amazing, beautiful, a nuisance, and the most snow we have ever seen outside of Big Bear in Cali. We have been practically snowed in since Thursday night. Dad was about the only one who could get out until last night. WOW! The bummer thing was that Mom didn't give anybody a snow day! LOL : )

Go grab a blanket and a mug of cocoa and enjoy the pics below! : )

Mike enjoyed the snow (even if Mom didn't enjoy cleaning him up afterwards! : )

Our poor little saplings in the front yard.

This is our driveway on day two (Friday) after Dad had left for work.

Isn't this shot beautiful? I really liked the contrasts of black and white.

Hope everyone's well...God bless...Stephen for the Fam
