Christmas tree, o' Christmas tree

Saturday afternoon we finally put up our Christmas tree. We've had a fake tree for a couple of years now. I will admit, I do miss our days of venturing out to buy a real Christmas tree and Theo trying to figure out how to strap it to the roof of our car! :) But the convenience of our not so real tree can't be beat. Carter was quite the little helper this year. Almost too much.....we had a hard time getting lights untangled after he got ahold of them! And then he cut on of the strings used to hang the ornament off. So then we had to put the scissors out of reach. As is our family tradition, we had hot chocolate and apple cider and played Christmas music while we were decorating the tree. We have yet to locate our tree skirt and star tree topper since we have moved. I am afraid they might be in a mislabeled box in the garage and we may never find them least not until we move again! We had a good time putting all of the ornaments on and we enjoyed watching Carter having such fun! Olivia was quietly hanging out in her swing for the most part. Now it's present wrapping time!!

I thought this was a cool picture despite how dark it is

I agree with you that the silhouette picture is wonderful. I'm glad you all had fun.

The silhouette picture is very artsy! Looks like you intended it that way. Nice job!
