"ROUND AND ROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE..."


We finally found a night that we were together enough to decorate the tree. It was 8:30, and Tibi still had to shower, but we got it done. It gets different every year almost, as the numbers dwindle down to the last two kids. Michaela even missed out this year because she is still in California having more fun with Marc anyway. We LOVE to decorate the tree... it is one the highlights of the season for us. Mostly because we get to put the White House ornaments on. We have decided that we need a 2nd tree in the house for all of the decorations we have had since Kevin and I were young marrieds, because those memories are not yet ready to be thrown away by the kids. The problem is that none of them go with the beautiful gold White House ornaments that were given to us every year by grandpa and grandma while they were in Washington, D.C. If you look close, you can see how pretty they are...they actually end up being the prettiest thing in the house in December...(no kidding)

I don't know why the tree is one of my favortie decorations. Maybe it's because so many traditions come with it. Yous looks fantastic.

Marce won't touch the ornaments...as long as Eden doesn't! ha ha Yay! I'm glad it's up and now you can drink hot chocolate and listen to Christmas music with all the lights off watching the tree. It just makes those bricks back there glow! Can't wait to come!

Tibi said...

Yeah we will just have to teach the kids not to touch them. They will learn fast. Haha
