setting the dried out Christmas tree on fire
When looking at the pictures later that night, we were all totally amazed at the shapes we saw in the fire. We all agreed this looks like a dragon. If you look closely to the top left, you'll even see the little mustache-thingy like Mushu the dragon has in the Disney movie, Mulan.
Ok, this one was just plain freaky! It looks like someone is on fire!
Amazing how fast the tree burns up! Talk about a fire hazard in your house!
the Fire Brigade... Kate pointing out some sparks in the tops of the pine trees, and Ryan making sure we don't have a runaway fire (all because we enjoy watching our dead Christmas tree burn!)
Now the boys have decided it would be fun to throw firecrackers into the fire pit, and are hiding behind the shed to watch! I suppose boys will be boys...
