Decorating the Tree


We watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (it's tradition) the night we picked out our Christmas tree. We put the tree in a big bucket of water while we waited for the branches to drop so we could put it in the stand. The very next day we were ready!

The "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" movie was on and we drank egg nog. And we waited.....

Our tree is the most perfect tree you have ever seen! We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year was playing and we watched as daddy finally put the lights on the tree! Girlie and Nick could hardly wait to start decorating from the two big boxes of ornaments. It's fun to reminisce about ornaments and everyone had a comment or favorite memory about each ornament and what year they got it and how special it was to each one of them.

"Let me tell you a little story about Frosty the Snowman." Girlie and Nick love listening to Burl Ives tell that story and we all sang as we decorated our tree. Now we're waiting for the big man to arrive to fill our stockings and bring us that special gift that we asked for.
