Normally we put up and decorate our Christmas tree on Thanksgiving (or a few weeks before like last year!). This year, I decided that our 7.5 foot tree that fit perfectly in our house in Colorado looked short and sad in our house here in NC. So we HAD to get a new tree and I waited too long to order it so it wasn't here in time for Thanksgiving. Oops!!
The tree arrived a few days after Thanksgiving and I immediately set it up! What a difference an extra foot makes!! Our new tree looks so much happier and festive!! So once the tree was all set up, Grandma (who was still in town!) and I got the kids all dressed in their Christmas jammies and we set to work decorating the tree.
Trying to get a good picture is hard when two of the four make funny faces AND have a horrible cold!
Opening this year's ornaments from Grandma & Grandpa
It was definitely entertaining decorating the tree this year as it was the first year that Ben and Lexie helped for more than 5 minutes! While I was unwrapping ornaments and Grandma was taking pictures, the kids put most of the ornaments on the bottom half of the tree and most were hung 2 or 3 to a branch. (There was some rearranging of ornaments after everyone went to bed!)
Look! We do love each other!!
Much better group shots
The finished tree!!
Gorgeous tree! And adorable munchkins! It was a memorable tree decorating to be sure!!ReplyDelete
