Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree

I am starting to feel festive. Today we trimmed the Christmas tree. We usually put up decorations during the whole of December. I will post as we make and decorate things.

While my husband and I put up the tree my Children decorated the little wire tree. I use this one for them to put on all the decorations they have made, and then we use other decorations to fill up the tree, I bet in a few years it will be full of their creations. I really love doing this as I find their decorations can get lost on the big tree and can't really be enjoyed. We put the decorations made this year at the front and the ones made other years at the back and side. We put this little tree onto of the TV unit in the family room, so everyone can enjoy it.

Then we decorated the big tree, they are so proud of their handy work:)
I have had a Christmas song in my head all day. You see miss 6 lost her second front tooth today, so guess what she has been singing. How many more days to Christmas??????

Add Image Ohh looky here I see a decorations that I got in my swap package.

Ohhh here is another one what a lovely Angel from my swap partner.

The Angel onto is one of Shannon Thompsons creations. I have another one for the Mantel. Will show photos of the rest of the house as we decorate it.

Here is the finished tree.

I also get my children to fill up bowls with baubles. They love to do that and the we put them around the house.

Bek that looks lovely!
The kids really make the Spirit of Christmas Alive and real.
We let the kids have their own tree too...
Ours is a branch from the yard and they really did a great job on it!
It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!

Hey Bek! It's certainly starting to look like Christmas at you place!! I've come to the conclusion that we don't have room for a tree without completely re-arranging the lounge room, so it will have to just be Christmas in our hearts! Christmas is certainly made for kids to have fun and be creative - have fun! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Oh, everything looks stunning. How blessed you are to have little ones around for Christmas. My girls are teens now, and I miss the days when Santa was still alive in our home. I wrote a story about A Christmas tree, which I posted today. Maybe your children would enjoy it. Please stop by.
