The putting-up-of-the-Christmas-tree was a two day process this year.
We always use an artificial tree - the same one I’ve had since I was a kid. It’s about as old as I am – but unlike me, its age doesn’t show…soooo anyway…This year except for the lights, the kids pretty much decorated the entire thing themselves.
They did an awesome job
We watched Polar Express while we decorated. I love and hate that movie.
It’s so awesome but also so creepy!
This ornament always has to go front and center on the tree, of course
When we were done, we put on the BEST Christmas movie of all
A Christmas Story,
had some cocoa, and sat and stared at the tree…
