After knitting a bit this morning, and watching The Help with Sara, I got busy with the tree. Sara had an artificial tree in storage outside that, and I kid you not, went up in about 3 minutes.

Births, birthdays, graduations and holidays. On hearing they'd be going home for Christmas, they made this video.
Charming. Welcome home HMS Ocean!
