O Christmas Tree…

Every year we pick out the most beautiful Christmas tree. And after we defrost it’s time to decorate!

I don’t really mean we. This is more of a mommy job. Kyle is in charge of putting up the tree, lights and angel/star (depending on who’s year it is) and he brings up all the boxes of Christmas stuff.

Katheryn liked that we had a TREE in the house! And playing with the branches that were taken off.

Then I take over. Decorating the tree, decorating the house, listening to Carols and teaching the kids all my favourites.

Katheryn thought the tree was great! Especially when we put all this stuff on it! That she can pull off and hide all around the house. At the moment we have most of the decorations on the top 4 feet of the tree, not so much on the bottom 3 ft.

And Nick is happy to play with whatever he can get his hands on! And by this I mean crawling over to get whatever he can get his hands on. He is army crawling all over the place! And sometimes getting his hips and knees helping as well.

So it might look  like Katheryn is helping to decorate - but really it's the other way around. She LOVES those candy canes! I've actually taken off the hooks so she can carry and collect them around the house.

So this is the finished product!

 And a couple of really happy kids! Even if they do look kinda goofy in these pictures!

  1. Beautiful! Our bottom third of the tree is rather mismatched as well. Cordelia is all about taking them off. Cor and Rach 'wrap' them and give them to random people as gifts throughout the day. I think it gives a tree character ;)
