Decorating the Tree
We put up our tree almost a week ago. Chad took Mary Ella for a daddy-daughter date of sorts, to pick out the perfect tree from the "Christmas tree patch" as she called it, and then they went to TCBY for ice cream. I would've gone but it was super cold and I am doing everything I can to avoid sickness these days! So me and Sambo stayed home and waited patiently for them to return.
Chad actually let Mary Ella pick the tree and he said it was the first one she saw, but it actually is the perfect tree for our house! It's about 12 feet tall and it leans a little like the Who-ville tree, but it has yet to fall over and is holding our ornaments so I think it's perfect.
Mary Ella just ooohed and aahhhed at all the ornaments and then she went and got one of her baby dolls to "show her" the tree. She put the doll's face up to every ornament and said "See this one? It's a ball" or "See this one? It's a dog!" Sam seemed to like the Christmas lights the most. And the football game that was on TV. :)
A little flashback from last year...
Happy tree decorating!
