First, we tackled our family tree which is in the living room. The kids had sooo much fun decorating! Rachel kept giggling and chanting, "I like it, I like it, I like it!" Jeremiah kept saying, "I'm so excited! Thank you Momma!" Caleb was the old pro and helped scope out the best spots to put the ornaments.
The 3 1/2 foot area of the tree is very heavily decorated :) I'm fighting hard and resisting the urge to re-decorate when the kiddos are napping or sleeping. I may be spatially challenged, but even I wouldn't clump so many like ornaments together in one spot. Oh well... the sight gives my tree character and represents where my family is right now. Preschoolers/Kindergarteners abound! This is life with 4 and 5 year olds, so I'm going to embrace it! The tree stays as is :-)
Trees 2 and 3 are found in the kiddos rooms. They love the fiber optics lights and having their own special little ornaments for their trees. I hope they keep their sweet smiles and enthusiasm for years to come. Celebrating Jesus' birth is definitely something to smile about, and I look forward to teaching them more and more about that each day.
