Saturday Night it was time to trim the tree!! The girls all had steamy cups of candy cane lane while Mama (not in her kerchief) put the lights on the tree. This is our first year for colored lights and I love it. (One strand blinks slowly while the alternating strands are on steady. Beautiful! I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, sitting with Maralie in the living room, watching the tree awaiting the negotiated time to go and wake up Mom and Dad and show them all of our stocking booty!) While I finished up the lights and Joel put on the star (with the help of a six foot ladder!) the girls ran around showing off the other decorations ("Take my picture by the stockings!! Take my picture with Rudolph!!") so I that I could put them on the blog to show you all! Then everyone picked a special ornament to put on the tree, and the trimming began! Amarra picked her favorite "very delicate special glass snowflake from Mimi", while Elora chose her "heart with the pearls" from Mimi and Seleia picked a star (from Mimi), but informed us that the sparkly blue one (her first star from Mimi, I believe) was still her favorite.When all was said and done we sat back, turned off all of the other lights and enjoyed our handiwork! Now every morning everyone wants to cuddle on the couch and "watch the tree". Fine by me!!
