For the past 3 years Allison and I have been getting our Christmas Tree from the Boy Scouts of Troop 23. A quick trip over and we picked out a nice six footer. The boys there do a very nice job and the trees are always decent ones. We’ve had some really good luck over the years. This one is another fantastic one.
Decorating it was interesting. We’ve never done this with a little one underfoot before. Sure Eva’s been around but the past few years she hasn’t been as active or mobile as this year. Getting her to sit still while we did the lights was ‘fun’. Then she wanted to help with the ornaments but didn’t want to actually put them on the tree, she just wanted to give them to Allison. however, she only broke one of them so we did pretty well overall. Eventually she hung a few of the ornaments up on her own. I think she really enjoyed the experience overall.
After we did the big tree we set up Eva’s personal Christmas tree. She is just about as tall as the tree too. She had more fun decorating this one. She loves all her little ornaments and she has some very nice ones. Two new ones were added this year including her little angel and her tinkerbell one. Here are a bunch more Christmas Tree photos that I took today, and some from last year.
Tomorrow we go and meet Santa.
