Tree decorating: Nov. 29, 2012 - Photo Gallery 1/8

From left, Asher Elementary School fourth and fifth grade students Victoria Frankovich, Madilynn Larman and Malorie Larman place a red cowboy hat atop their school's decorated tree. The theme of their tree is 'A Cowboy Western Christmas.' School children from across the state came to the state Capitol to decorate 36 small Christmas trees in the hallways and rotunda. Gov. Mary Fallin and State Superintendent Janet Barresi joined Santa Claus in greeting the students at each tree after they were decorated. Many of the children stayed to watch the governor light the state Christmas tree on the south plaza on Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012. Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
