We FINALLY have our Christmas Tree up!
Sweet Pea has a pink one in her room, of course.
She is rather fond of it, as you can tell.
The boys have a tree in their room as well. I believe it is the ONLY place where you have a Colts poster actually out shining the Christmas Tree.
The kids "helped" Nurse Boy put up the tree. Yes, we have an artificial tree. I personally prefer artificial. I don't have to mess with it. We all know I would forget to water it and the needles would drive my OCD-self batty.
The kids love hanging up their own ornaments. They each get a dated ornament every year. We will present the ornaments to them on their first Christmas after they are married. A few years ago we started the tradition of going to Hallmark the day after Christmas. Each of the kids gets to pick out their own ornament for the year. An added bonus is I save 50%!
Sweet Pea made sure the bottom half of the tree was decorated really well.
Um... maybe a little too well. No worries. This is about the time that we send the kids off to bed and make some "minor" adjustments.
Ah... MUCH better. Turn off all of the room lights and cozy up with a cup of hot chocolate.
Now, that makes me smile.
