Our Christmas tree has been up for two weeks. Yep, we are one of those families. Once all the golden leaves have fallen outside and it gets cold and gray, we want our living room to feel cozy and warm, and nothing gives it amazing coziness like our Christmas tree.
However, I did save this blog post until after Thanksgiving, because I do adore the end of November and don't want to rush Christmas along too much.
The day we got the Christmas tree out we also got the kids' new Christmas pjs. Because there is something so special wearing new pjs to decorate the tree and every night from here until Christmas arrives! We want to get a lot of use out of them, and they've been wearing them non-stop since.
Both E and I sat back and let the kids have at it. They each picked their favorite "instruments" (as James calls ornaments) and found a perfect brach to place them.
Juliet found one brach she was particularly found of.
I love how little kids decorate. This branch held six or eight ornaments all at once.
They both loved climbing on the side table to get a little higher on the tree.
Christmas music played, the fire was light, snow gently fell outside, and we really started Christmas season on the right foot.
Once James found the Santa hat in the Christmas box earlier in the day, there was no taking it off. So, since we had fresh snow, and happy kids, I decided to try for some header photos.
Happy holidays! May your Christmas season begin with pure joy and some fresh snowflakes.
