It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

We finally got our tree put up and Jason hung the icicle lights outside (thanks babe!). I usually put 2 trees up- one in our living room and one in the entry way. However, with the house being on the market and feeling a bit like a hippo these days I decided to stick with just one tree. As per tradition, we put up the tree in the living room while watching 'A Muppet Christmas Carol'. Emma was much more involved this year, giving our tree her own decorating twist and resulting in lots of ornaments that need a little bit of love (in other words some hot glue).
Emma had about 20 ornaments confined to 2 branches. I had to even it out after she went to bed in fear of the tree tipping over due to excessive weight on one side :)

While I love the themed trees, decked out in one or two colors with a uniform look, ours is very special. Each ornament had a story to tell. They have been collected over the years by each family member and have meaning to them. Hence why we have two trees- there is a whole other tote in the basement full of ornaments that typically adorn the tree in our entryway! Now to drag the other 10 totes out of the basement to complete the holiday atmosphere around here...
