Trimming the tree – 2012

Dec 09, 12 Trimming the tree – 2012

Well, we finally got around to decorating the tree this year.  It’s been up for a week or two but with my work schedule and my wife’s work schedule, we  had a hard time getting together with the kids for a few hours in order to get the job done.

We had a good time like we usually do: drinking hot chocolate, listening to Christmas music (I believe my wife had “She and Him” streaming over Google Music most of the time.

As you can see from some of these pictures, most of our tree is subsidized by Disney (since the acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney).  Most of my Star Wars ornaments were gifts from my wife over the years.  A good deal of the them are plug-in ornaments and when I plug the tree each night, there’s a cacophony of “pew-pews”, Darth Vader breathing heavy, and Luke whining about needing to go to Toshi Station to pick up some power converters.

So, now, we get to enjoy the tree, in all its Disney-fied glory, and watch the monorail circle ’round and ’round until the batteries die.
