Some Xmas stuff

Wednesday night Rebecca's dad came over, and he and the girls decorated the tree while Rebecca and I went shopping for Xmas presents. This was the first time the girls had ever had a real tree, so they were pretty excited about it. We didn't want to do anything extravagant, so we went with a small tree...although I think we could have used a few more ornaments.

Here are some pics...

The next night there was a gorgeous sunset, so I had to go on to our balcony and get a shot of it:

Nice shot of the sunset.

Family pictures are wonderful, although a cat might have enhanced the artistic impact.

Setting up a tree, making cookies, wrapping and opening presents - these all make up for the commercial world outside your door. Christmas, even in the 21st century, is still a very good thing.
