Christmas Decorating 2021

it’s starting to look a lot like Christmas!

We decorated our tree tonight. The boys helped, and Chloe joined in as well. The boys were uninterested in spreading the fake write branches, slightly interested in hanging lights, but they loved hanging ornaments.

This is the first Christmas for our two kittens, so we’re a little worried, but it’s been 5 hours now and we haven’t lost an ornament to a cat yet!

On Saturday, Archer helped me get most of the house lights up!

Board Games

Ashton has gotten very deep into board games since moving to Oregon. I have always loved games, and he up playing games like RISK.

We started with a small collection around 2010 with games like Settlers of Catan, Star Wars RISK, and Lord of the Rings RISK. Then around 2018 we found Space Base, Secret Hitler, King of Tokyo.

Today, Ashton’s favorite games are INIS, Project Elite, And the latest addition to the collection: Mechs vs Minions.

Christmas Decorations 2019

One of the requests from the family we bought our house from was to decorate well for Christmas. We did an okay job last year but with some effort not a lot of extra Christmas lights we did better this year. We’re going to need a lot more lights for next year.
