Every year I always feel that things are rushed around this time of the year. I feel that the most important activities get done just to get done. This year I have decided to try and make some changes so that this doesn't happen. We decided that tonight would be a good time to put up our Christmas tree even though it is not December 1st. The kids were so excited to put up the tree - they have been bugging me for a couple of weeks. I love how they get excited about doing these activities - their enthusiasm is addictive. They had so much fun putting on the decorations and listening to the Christmas songs. Avery said that this is the best time of year - being with family and doing things together. These traditions mean so much to the kids. I am always learning from them.
Okay I love white lights, much to the dismay of my kids. They want coloured lights. Maybe when these lights burn out. With over 1200 lights on my tree, I put it away with all the lights on. The white lights are not coming off until they burn out. Maybe next year guys!
