Christmas Decorations

The kids were off on Friday and desperate to get into the Christmas decorations. It's a little early for us in the year really but we went with it. We weren't quite prepared for the 6:00 a.m. wake up call from our son ready to decorate the Christmas tree. Or the next 8 hours of insanity while everything was unpacked and hung and put away. Or the frostbite from putting up the lights outside. But I think it was worth it.

It was strange unpacking things we hadn't seen for 2 years (we were in the UK last year). Nostalgic to know that the last time we'd put up the tree the dog had helped :)

The final ornament that went on the tree was this...happy memories.


  1. Hi
    Love the tree and theme of the decorations. Am thinking it is about time the frog was brought out again !! Now I am inspired having seen you efforts
    love to you all

  2. Beautiful tree. I love the blue lights. I'm still too afraid to put my tree up this year. The 10-month-old is a total terror with all her crawling, walking, pulling up to and climbing on things.

    People have suggested I put up a dog gate around it. Of course, by the time I got one bought, Christmas would probably be over!

  3. Karen--keep kissing that frog :) It's hard work but worth it I think.

    Linda--10 months, argh!! There will be no peace!! But she will love all the shiny things :) Enjoy!!!!
