Ever since I was little my favorite part of the holiday season was putting up our Christmas Tree! It’s just so magical seeing it light up for the first time! I am so thankful that I get to share this with my family! The girls adore the tree! I believe Lilly’s exact words when she saw it light up was WOW! The next day she asked me to pick her up and she pointed to the tree and said pretty! Even at 16 months she can sense the magic! Emma had a similar reaction. She said “Mommy that is so beautiful”! I seriously became emotional at their reaction to our tree.
Emma helped us decorate the tree. She picked out the places she wanted the ornaments and asked for a boost if she couldn’t reach. Lilly helped us figure out how high she could reach on the tree. You know you have a curious toddler in the house when your tree only has ornaments on the top half! LOL
This year we have the perfect mix of store bought and homemade ornaments.
Lilly decorated this Mickey Mouse ornament!
Emma really made Minnie’s Bow look nice!
Of course we needed have a VW bus front and center! Though the tree has only been up for a few days the girls are already quite attached. If we don’t turn it on in the morning Emma gets upset! She wants the lights on all day long. There are even times I catch her just staring at it mesmerized!
