December 4: We finally decorated the Christmas tree last night. This is by far my most favorite activity of the holiday season. I love having the Christmas music on in the background and reminicing about all of our different ornaments and spending time together as a family.
Both kids were in their pj's for the event. For some reason that really struck me and I love that that's how it worked out--maybe an innocence factor to it all. Of course Hannah wanted to eat the ornaments which was a challenge but we managed. Luke was super into hanging ornaments this year--he really got into it which was so much fun to watch. He even put the angel on top of the year.
December 5: As I've mentioned numerous times, I'm addicted to Pinterest. Well, I have seen numerous different ideas for decorating styrofoam trees. My plan was to work on some about 3 weeks ago--I finally got a chance to work on some today. Hannah was napping after lunch and Luke was at school so I took an hour and worked on 4 different trees. I haven't taken any pictures of them but I will at some point. I really had a lot of fun outside of the fact that I now have a blister on my thumb from the hot glue I was using.
