At Andrew’s suggestion, I took pictures at about 15-minute intervals as I decorated the tree last night. The whole affair took about 2 hours from stringing the lights to completion. Unfortunately, most of my pictures are out-of-focus. Even now, I can’t seem to get a good picture of the tree…maybe I need to set up the little tripod that I have.
That black lump that appears in a couple of the pictures is Ares — he’s having trouble deciding if he likes laying under the tree or laying on our new comforter more.
