Trimming the Tree

Last week we finally unpacked the last box in our new house. Pictures were hung on the walls and we put everything where it needed to go. Just in time to put some of it away to make room for the Christmas decorations.

This is the only ornament that Caleb hung on the tree. I have always loved hanging the ornaments on the tree. It is the best part of decorating for Christmas. I love finding old ornaments that mean something to our family. Caleb's and Cody's first Christmas, something they made from preschool, an ornament from our honeymoon, ornaments from various vacations, ornaments that family members or friends have given us. It makes me happy to see the tree lit up with all the memories.

I couldn't believe that he didn't want to help. Cody was my little helper though, I can always count on him to help his mama. He is usually stuck like glue to my side.

In our old house, we had vaulted ceilings in the living room, so our Christmas tree is 9 ft tall. It is a very pretty tree and we hated that we couldn't use it at our new house. We decided to try it out with the top off of it. It fit perfectly and with the angel on top you can't tell that it is missing its top.
Wa La! The finished product. Now it feels like Christmas :o)
