It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
This is the first Christmas when my older girls are genuinely excited about everything related to Christmas.
They were overjoyed to put up the Christmas tree with its twinkling lights – and even happier to help with the ornaments!
It truly is magical to experience the holidays through the eyes of your kids.
Our youngest daughter has a birthday in early December, so we always wait until the day after to put up the tree and decorate our home. I don’t want her to feel like we cram her special day in with the craziness of the holidays! It just means we are a little later than most getting into the Christmas spirit with decorations!
While my husband was at work one Friday and it was pouring rain outside, the girls and I got the tree up and decorated the house. What a nice break from the insanity of the holidays to spend a day in our pajamas and eat yummy food while making the house look festive!
I’m so thankful for my sweet girls – and not sad for a moment that they’re getting a little bigger so we can enjoy the holidays with fewer little kiddo meltdowns!
Take a peek at my sweet family spending an evening together putting ornaments on the tree and listening to Christmas music! We were under the careful supervision of Graham, our golden retriever.
(And, yes, that’s my middle one who is celebrating the holidays by declining to wear a shirt)
