I am sure that those of you that put up a Christmas tree have already done so, but I thought I would share with you how we do it at Casa de Wrong Feet.
Step one: Test the camera. Set camera up to take pictures on a one minute automatic timer. If you have a tripod, use it otherwise the back of the couch works almost as well.
Step two: Put tree stand in predetermined location. Insert tree.
Step three: Photobomb as many of your own pictures as possible with the help of the warning light the camera flashes three seconds before each picture is taken.
Step four: Actually trim the tree with whatever decorations your family uses. For us this includes thirty year old salt dough ornaments and other various childhood keepsakes from my youth, straw bobbles and Swedish flag chains from Husband’s Swedish heritage, hand made ornaments Cody and Carter have made over the years as well as the boys’ special ornaments, one for each Christmas the boys have celebrated.
Step five: Bust out the eggnog (for those of you who drink such swill)
Step six: and the holiday beer (for those of you with a more refined taste.)
Step seven: Celebrate another successfully decorated tree.
Step eight: The end.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday.
