Ok, the kids' decorating has gotten out of control. I guess K didn't approve of M's ornament placement, and took all of the balls off the tree and put them on the couch. She then got distracted and forgot. A while later, I go into the front room, and there was a big pile of ball ornaments covering the one couch cushion.
As I type this, S is having quite the adventure involving candy canes off the tree, M's transformer, and a halloween trick or treat pumpkin that hasn't made it back into storage yet.
