Just Can't Help It

The girls can hardly wait for Christmas. I think the chain counting down to our Christmas trip to Disney (chosen instead of presents by the girls this year) might be contributing to the anticipation. So, we put up the kids tree in the basement for FHE last night. My parents joined us and it was a great time.
It is not decorated beautifully, but it makes me so happy to see that my girls did it and how happy it made them. And, isn't that the purpose of a kids tree?!
I justified the early decorating by reminding myself that Christmas is for the children. And, that we will be gone for a week during the Christmas Season, so we might as well have our decorations up a little early and enjoy them.


  1. Christmas really is about the kids. I don't know what we did before we had them. They had a grand time getting the tree setup and even Eliza was into it. I can't wait to see what she's doing next year!

  2. I think it is beautiful!!! What an exciting thing to count down to! We put our tree up Nov. 1st because the season goes so fast why not soak it up?!!!

  3. It was a very fun night being with the excited little girls. Thanks for including us!

  4. You manage to arrange and plan such fun times...what a fun evening! The pictures are adorable!
