December is here!! Up goes the TREE

I am so glad its this wonderful time of year! Full of traditions, parties, sweets and fun! The day after Thanksgiving, Matt worked really hard at putting up our tree..we have a fake one that we use every year and it saves us money. I do miss the pine smell..so maybe next year we will do real. Our poor trees lights this year werent working anymore.. so Matt went to work adding new colorful blinking ones.... Here is the finished product, not the best..but its our little tree and we LOVE it!
Under the tree is our Christmas books! We have 25 of them, so each night one of the children gets to unwrap a book and we all read it together! Its one of our favorite tradtions.

All the children helped place bulbs and ornaments on the tree - they love that part. We are currently in search of the perfect star.

Emily and Matt hard at work..slaving away getting our tree JUST RIGHT!


  1. I think the tree looks good if I do say so myself!! I wonder if it will survive another Christmas at the hands of Liam?!

  2. that is such a cool christmas tradition. i bet it gets spendy though. i want to steal that idea really bad.

  3. No, Ash! Its not spendy, I just found christmas books at yard sales one summer, and paid very little for them. I just rewrap the same books each year!
