Thanksgiving came and went and we're now into Christmas!
We put the punkins in their pajamas.....
And decorated the tree Friday night. It was chaotic as expected.
I love this sugar candy garland......very child-like and sparkly.
Lots of direction from the little ones.
This might surprise you, but Jack found his train ornaments from last year and lost focus.
This one reminds me of how little he still is.....and that makes me happy.
Carter has always topped the tree and is still doing it for us. Even at 9 years old and 84 pounds!
Jack paid no attention to the tree topping and instead started hauling other ornaments with his train engine. Priorities.
Lainey saw Carter and wanted to help "up high", too.
Found lots of fun stuff from over the years.....including these foam antlers from the Fort Worth Lights Parade.....one of our old favorites.
In all of our houses, we've managed to have a tree in the front window and this year is no different. I love that....the warm glow from our happy home for others to see.
And, if you squint.....and ignore the top portion absent of lights....and pay no attention to the ornament placement......it's almost pretty.
From the inside, though, it's a whole different story. Might be our ugliest yet. Overloaded with ornaments, several strung on each branch....clusters of design by small children.
Just the way I like it.
