we set up our christmas tree on sunday night. it was a lot of fun. penelope is currently calling all of the ornaments "my toys." she has been really good at keeping them on the tree so far though. after we decorated the tree we laid on the floor with pillows and blankets, we turned out the lights (except the tree's lights) and just enjoyed it for a while. we then read the grinch who stole christmas. it was a fun night.
this year i made a tree skirt to replace the piece of fabric that i used to wrap around the base of my christmas tree. i had a few different plans, but this is what i ended up with and i love it. i made a cream quilted skirt and then i sewed on the yo-yos, felt leaves and green trim.
