The tree!!!

Oh, I LOVE it!!! You all should do this!! I am having so much fun looking at all of the pictures from the past year and talking about the things we did with the kids. This is definitely something that will be done every year from here on out. We put the tree up tonight. There are a few rules I have for tree decorating. Hot Chocolate must be present, kids MUST be in pjs (that’s a BIG one. Don’t mess with me on that one. 🙂 ), and Christmas music must be playing. It was so much fun and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy and READY for this Christmas season. I think that’s why I gave these images a vintage feel. 🙂

Hot chocolate…the kids got to use the Christmas mugs for the first time this year. They thought they were so big. Wait, they ARE getting big.



She spilled the stuff EVERYWHERE!!!







Time to decorate!


I loved that they would examine each ornament and say “I remember that! That was when we…” LOVE it. 🙂




And here it is…my Favorite tree EVER!!! Still needs a few finishing touches but I’m so glad it’s up and we have 2 months to enjoy it!




And, lastly…Our Perfect Children. The children who always listen and never misbehave. They get along beautifully at all times and would rather be with one another than anyone else in the world. Right. 😉

This is how she wanted to “pose” for her picture. Goodness Gracious, child!!


It begins…


He did NOT like her posing ideas. So he inflicted a little bit of pain on her. Things went downhill quickly.




Don’t they look Thrilled? I think this should be the Christmas Card pic this year.


Or maybe one of these…



And that, Folks, brought the evening to a close. Kids were tucked in bed and Collin and I came back downstairs to enjoy the tree. And quite a bit of working on the laptops…Tis’ the season!

    Thanks, Gillian! And I completely understand about the baby gate. In fact, as we were decorating the tree last night I thought “Tess will have this thing down in 10 seconds flat.” 🙂 Gotta love that stage! And Mak’s hair…it’s Killing me!! Yes, he does look almost 6. Crazy!ReplyCancel

    PERFECT tree for a photographer! When I saw Collin’s status update about the tree you “designed,” I thought, “Gee, I just hang ornaments and its the same each year!”ReplyCancel
