In which we put up the lights in the front window...
"Christmas lights," John said, trying to untangle the mass we'd pulled out of the box. "These are really tangled up..."
"They're net lights. I got them by mistake two years ago," Maddy said, coming in. "They're supposed to drape over a bush or something, I didn't read the package and thought they were a string."
"Like these?" Shel, meanwhile, was getting all wrapped up in something else - literally.
"No, those are icicle lights, sweetie," Maddy said. "Like on the house across the street."
"How are net lights going to work for the window?" I somehow wasn't seeing it.
(And yes that is THE rhododendron of Bigger Than The House fame.)
"So it didn't turn out to be a big-time screwup after all," she said.
Baby was none too pleased about the interruption, either. He's about as annoyed as he looks in that photo. And yes, his beak is dirty. He just got out of his food bowl and there were broccoli florets for dinner. He's a messy eater.
Twenty more days to go....
