I want a Christmas Tree

This is what rang in our home yesterday. What fun this season is becoming as a preschooler starts to learn about the magic of Christmas.

Since we have a December birthday we have a rule that we don't put up our tree until the weekend after the birthday. So this will be the weekend.

We did put up lights early this year. In fact daddy and the babies (not sure how much help they were) put them up on my first full day home from the hospital. It was fun to see their faces light up when they counted to three and turned on the lights. The squeals of anticipation were fun to hear too. I don't think I have seen my husband so excited about getting the Christmas boxes out of the attic as he was that day. We of course wont be the yard that wins the light award but our lights this year are just for us. Small, not grand but great in the eyes of a 2 and 3 year old that love to count 1-2-3-Christmas Lights! every night as they are plugged in out front.

But back to the tree. All day Campbell kept talking about the tree. No doubt tree's were discussed at preschool as they were working on ornaments as the craft.
This year she tells me that she wants to "help" decorate the tree and that it should have pink, purple, butterflies and flowers on it! Cute idea but not sure our tree will turn out that way. Either way I think she will enjoy putting the decorations on the tree this year. Hmmmm, or maybe I should contact Heather over at life in a small town who owns a Christmas Shop. She has a made some pretty great trees with different themes. Click here to see for yourself.

Hey here's an idea. Tell me about your tree, your favorite ornament or tradition. I'd love to know.
