The kids were fit to be tied last night, but it's not their fault. We put the tree up. Which meant that they had to try to curtail their glee while everything was being put together and the lights were hung. Actually, the kids couldn't curb their enthusiasm, as they managed to decorate the bottom foot of the tree while we tried to string the lights. Finally, we got it up and decorated, and the kids managed to get a few good pictures taken of themselves.
All things considered, it was a pretty good evening, with virtually no swearing.
We're pretty excited about Christmas.
