Decorating the Christmas Tree

While decorating the outside of the house is left to me, Theresa has free reign over the inside of the house. Time to put up the tree!

Ian was certainly excited to decorate.

Alli says Let me at those ornaments!

She'd grab the snowflakes from the box one at a time, then pile them onto this section of the tree, and she was so happy with herself.

Smiling cause she found the Prep and Landing elves.

I like those Mickey ornaments too buddy.

Alli found little Santa!

And made sure to give him a hug and kiss.

My mom made these ornaments way back when I was little. A little clothespin soldier.


And these clothespin reindeer too.


Finally it was time for the star. That's always my job.

And I usually get some help.


Very nice T. The tree looks great!

I love this trick you can do with a tripod and a zoom lens. It's an explosion of lights!

And it's not just the tree. The kids love having an advent calendar filled with treats. Even though we always do it after dinner, Ian asks about it as soon as he wakes up.

The love finding the little toys and especially the candy.

  1. I was wondering if you’d do the light explosion again. I may try it on our tree this week!
