Christmas eve is 24 days away. Some people have already had their festive decorations up for a month and have already or nearly finished all their holiday shopping. That’s incredible and I give total credit to anybody who is able to establish this long before everyone else is even writing a list.
This family however, begins the Christmas festivities closer to the actual holiday. Being it the last weekend before December, this past Sunday was Christmas tree decorating day in our house.
Real trees are beautiful, when they are outside. I don’t really feel the need to waste a perfectly good tree for ONE special day so here we use our wonderful (and just as beautiful when decorated) artificial tree. It’s a simple tree, it’s a fragile tree but it’s a tree nonetheless.
Hubby dug out the boxes of decorations we have stored in the basement and brought up what we needed.
It took a couple of tries to get the lights straight, we ran out of both lights and garland…but the final product is something to be proud of.
Dd got to place the angel on top of the tree. The first thing she did this morning was admire the family Christmas tree. It’s the lit up smiles that make it all worth it.
